Born in Ghaziabad (UP) and raised in Bangalore, the half Scottish Lara Dutta has proven herself to be not just a pretty face but also a very intelligent one. Lara started her modelling career by winning the Gladrags modelling competition and then going on to win the Miss India and Miss Universe contests in 2000. She especially impressed the judges at the Miss Universe contest by getting a maximum score on her final answer. We suggest not getting involved in a debate with this beauty!
In 2003, Lara entered the big bad world of Bollywood with 'Andaaz', alongside Akshay Kumar and fellow beauty queen Priyanka Chopra.
For about nine years, Lara had one of the most stable relationships in Bollywood with the Bhutanese model-turned-actor Kelly Dorjee. In 2007, however, the couple parted ways and recently Kelly has been linked with Yana Gupta.
Lara moved on to another model-turned-actor and fellow native Banglorean - Dino Morea. The couple were together for some time until rumours of their break-up began to surface earlier this year. It's not entirely clear what their current status is but whatever the case may be, it's clearly suiting Lara. She has never looked better or hotter than in her recent film 'Blue' and might just have the best bikini body in Bollywood today!
