That Lara Dutta is a multi-faceted person was no secret. What with the actress being equally involved with modeling, acting and social work simultaneously; but now, Lara has revealed yet another facet of her creativity – she has actually turned scriptwriter!Yes, the actress is set to give the scriptwriters a run for their money with her romantic-comedy that is now almost ready to be snapped up for taking. When quizzed about why Lara had kept this creative streak of her’s a secret for so long. The actress smiles as she says, “There were two reasons – one, that I was not being able to decide in what format would I want to express my creativity i.e., whether I wanted to write a novel, write poetry or what. It was quit later that I zeroed in on writing a script and when I decided upon that, I didn’t want to talk about it till the script was developed to a good extent, which it has now and hence I’m talking about it.” Well, not only does the fact that Lara is penning a script, a surprise, but what’s even more surprising is that her script is a comedy; something that one could hardly associate with the lady, at least prima facie. “Why is that so?!” purrs the actress as she continues, “It’s wrong to judge someone just from what they have essayed on screen. I love comedy!” Talking about ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’, one can’t help ask about the controversy that she and Abhishek got embroiled in while shooting at Southall in London. However, it’s not just work and no play for Lara who has been imbibing some gyaan about tarot in the interim period and has begun taking horse-riding sessions!
