Designer Akki Narula swears by her style quotient. Shah Rukh Khan is all praise for her character in Billu Barber. She is Lara Dutta, who is back from a self-imposed sabbatical. Here’s a quick chat with the ex-Miss Universe.

Shah Rukh Khan is all praise for your character in Billu Barber?
I was offered Billu.., when I was busy doing Blue and David Dhawan’s Do Knot Disturb. I did not have dates but SRK called and said, “Lara I want you to hear the story. It’s a simple character.” Every one wait to work with Red Chillies and SRK. I agreed. She is a simple village girl. Barber’s wife, mother of two children.

And you agreed?
Playing Bindiya was physically exhausting. I had to wood ka chullah, I even rowed water from the well, I chased murgiyaan.

What about your friend Dino Morea?
It’s true I enjoy hanging out with Dino, much more than the one’s I don’t know well. But still he doesn’t have that weight in my life that I admit it as a relationship.
