Actor Lara Dutta feels that the time when an actors’ career hit dead-end once she became a mother, has long gone. “So many actors have become mothers. They have all taken their time to come back. So, I think this is an outdated concept that if someone has become a mother, so she will sit at home. I can’t wait to get back to acting,” quips Dutta.
The 34-year-old actor says she’ll be signing her next film soon. “l will be signing a new film in a few days. It will be an easy role for me to jump back to. My own production will come later,” she says. Lara, who wed tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi last year, gave birth to her daughter Saira in January this year.
Dutta says she is determined to wear the grease paint and face the camera again and will pick her movie projects keeping in mind her daughter’s welfare. “My film choices are obviously going to be dictated by Saira’s welfare. I am not going to do films which would require me to stay on the sets from morning to night or for multiple days in a row. So, I will pick my movies very carefully. I am excited with what’s coming my way already,” says the first-time mommy. Dutta also said that she would begin work on her next production venture after Chalo Dilli (2011) in the second half of the year.
