Lara Dutta was born on April 16, 1978. After being crowned Miss Universe in 2000 she was appointed UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador in 2001. The crown brought fame and also opened doors to Bollywood.
She won the annual Gladsrags modeling competition. She was crowned Femina Miss India Universe and was even crowned Miss Universe in 2000.
Lara signed up for a Tamil film, Arasatchi in 2002, but due to financial problems, it could only release in mid-2004. She made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with the film Andaaz which was a box office success and won her a Filmfare Best Female Debut Award.
She then appeared in a number of films, some of which failed at the box office and some were mildly successful. Her box office hits include Masti (2004), Kaal (2005), No Entry (2005) and Partner (2007). She also starred in the comedy, Bhagam Bhag that also did well at the box office. She seems to have found her niche in the comedy genre.
In the year 2009 Lara had two back-to-back releases – Blue and Do Not Disturb. Both the films did not do well at the box office.
She will be seen next in Sajid Khan's Housefull. We wish her luck.
