Sexy is fun: Lara

MUMBAI: Lara Dutta’s living out of a suitcase these days. Shooting back-to-back for one film after another, the past few months have seen the Bollywood stunner go from the Bahamas to Cambodia and London. “

I have rested enough,” says Lara referring to the lull in her career last year after a rocking 2007. “Now I’m just looking forward to work and more work.”

The actress is taking her glam avatar to sizzling heights this year as she puts her best bikini bod forward in Anthony D’Souza’s Akshay Kumar-Sanjay Dutt and Zayed Khan starrer Blue. Produced by Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd, the film that releases on October 16 required Lara at her sexilicious best. Though she had no hang-ups about showing off her toned figure, she does admit that there’s a “lot of hard working out to get into a bikini on screen”.

“Having a good body gives you a lot of confidence to carry off any look. But the emphasis is always on being and feeling fit. That’s sexy and, yes, sexy is fun!,” she says about her hot beach look in the film that promises to catapult her into the league of B-town’s sexilicious brigade of Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. The ‘water-babe’ also reveals that she’s as excited about this underwater action thriller as she’s about the other two comedies lined up soon after — Housefull and Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai.

Having performed some daredevil stunts for Blue, she’s gearing up for some more action-oriented films. “I am really dying to play a super hero,” she laughs. “I would love to at least have one super-power — either the flying bit or the invisibility one. That’s always been my childhood dream.” And if she could turn invisible for a day? “I would like to find out who’s behind spreading all the rumours,” she laughs referring to reports of her being upset about co-star Katrina Kaif’s role being increased and being overshadowed by international pop queen Kylie Minogue in Blue.

As for the question that’s high on almost everyone’s mind... is Bollytown’s sexy lady single? Lara says, “I hope to be in a steady relationship some day. But I am not going to shout from rooftops if I do find true love. My private life is not for public consumption.”
