Actress Lara Dutta as of late revealed that she took  some time off from acting since she felt ‘jaded’ from being cast in roles that required her to be the male actor’s ‘girlfriend or wife.’

Lara Dutta made her acting debut with ‘Andaaz’ in 2003 and has appeared in several big-budget comedies, including ‘No Entry’, ‘Bhagam Bhag’, ‘Partner’, and the ‘Housefull’ series.

The speculations about her sabbatical from the entertainment industry have always been a talk of the town. And now that the actress is back in action, she revealed the justification behind enjoying the reprieve during her conversation with 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 glamorous actress had to be cast in a film. You were invariably playing the hero’s girlfriend or wife. I got tired of it”.

The actor explained that her choice to leave the screen was motivated by a desire to spend more time with her daughter Saira, with her husband Mahesh Bhupathi, as well as the fact that the industry rarely provided her with fascinating roles.

“It gave me a lot more to do than being someone’s wife or 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 glamorous heroine on screen. By the time I had my daughter in my early 30s, I had gotten jaded and tired of that. It was important and refreshing for me to take that step away,” she added.

It has been around two years that the actress is back in action with web series like Hundred, Hiccups and Hookups and Kaun Banegi Shekhawati in her pocket. Lara seems to be quite elated with the variety of roles she has got to play now. She said, “I did so much work in the last 18 months, more than what I have done in the last six years put together. It has been an incredibly liberating time as an artist to be able to play these diverse characters
