Actor Lara Dutta, who recently tied the knot with tennis ace Mahesh Bhupathi, says that she is glad that her spouse is a South Indian, as she is a Punjabi girl who loves Southern food.



While confessing that she is a foodie, Lara says, “Being a Punjabi, I love street-food, especially chats,

pani-puri, dahi-papdi

... you name it and I love it. And being a Bangalorean, I also love South Indian food. I am glad I married a South Indian.”



Despite her love of street food, Lara is known for having one of the best bodies in Bollywood, the secret to which she is sharing with the world through her fitness DVD,

Talking about the same, Lara says, “Exercise has always been an important element of my life and I think it is necessary to incorporate it into every single day of our lives.”



The 32-year-old said that she became serious about working out and turned to Yoga after her entry into the glamour world. "The constant pressure of work and the pressure of keeping the body in perfect shape made me realise that I needed something more than burning out calories. I needed something to restore fitness, rejuvenation of body and mind, which I found in yoga," she said.
