Miss Universe-turned-actress Lara Dutta is under fire for peddling her lover's luck in Bollywood. How far is this true? Lara reveals the truth.

Rumours are rife that you are going out of the way to promote your boyfriend Kelly Dorji. Has far has it helped?
My boyfriend is capable of promoting himself and taking decisions on his own. These are just rumours that I am promoting Kelly in the industry. We never advise each other in our matters. Kelly and I co-operate when the situation demands.

How has the experience, of playing a talkative girl, in Zinda been?
I was very impressed with the character of Basanti played by Hema Maliniji in Sholay. I had intense desire to play such a character so when I was offered the role in Zinda, I grabbed the opportunity within minutes.

Zinda is a multi-starrer film. What are the merits and demerits of such flicks?
When a multi-starrer film fails, everyone gets a little share for it, but if the same thing happens to a solo film, then the lead actors bear the brunt of the failure.

Is this the reason that makes you experiment with multi-starrer films?
This isn't true. What can I do if I am getting film offers where the star cast is huge? When I find my character worth it, I accept it. It doesn't mean that I am afraid of doing lead roles.
