Bollywood actress Lara Dutta Bhupathi is turning into quite the entrepreneur. Not only does she have her own production company and a fitness DVD, but the actress recently launched her own fashion line in Delhi.
The former Miss Universe launched her first Indian fashion collection on Sunday 21st October in collaboration with Chhabra 555.
Speaking about her new venture into fashion Lara told the media, “Fashion has always interested me. I wanted to create a brand that’s affordable but exclusive.”
Lara, who gave birth to her first child, daughter Saira, in January, has attempted to make the collection affordable and appealing to the middle class segment.
“From traditional Banarasi silk to delicate Lucknowi chikankari, we have saris for every woman. We also have lace and crystal ware and the idea is to have an assimilation of style and aesthetic.”
Work on the collection started in February until August, and the actress shared with the media that she enjoys keeping herself busy. “After Miss Universe, acting and then looking after production, I have now established my own brand. I enjoy keeping myself busy and would be able to strike a balance between fashion and films.”
Lara Dutta will next be seen on the big screen in the movie David alongside Vikram, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Tabu. The movie is set to release on 11 th January 2013.
