Lara Dutta explains why she took a break from Bollywood

Actress Lara Dutta is exploring her craft by trying out a variety of roles lately. However, few years back, she had taken a break from acting as she was tired of playing secondary roles which were insignificant to the script. For a long time, Bollywood writers have failed in writing female characters with some depth and this causes lack of roles for female actors after a certain age.

Talking about that, Lara told PTI, "By the time I reached my early 30s, I honestly may have gotten a bit jaded. The industry was in a different space back then. You were cast because a glamourous actress had to be cast in a film. You were invariably playing the hero's girlfriend or wife. I got tired of it."

In her quest to find challenging roles, Lara started taking up comedy movies. "It gave me a lot more to do than be someone's wife of girlfriend. I left my mark by doing comic films that were successful and popular. That became my sweet spot and gave me the opportunity to do more than just be a pretty glamourous heroine on screen," she said.
