Lara Dutta: It’s an exciting time to be in business as actor


Mumbai, Oct 12 (IANS) Actress Lara Dutta Bhupathi is all set to make her OTT debut in an untitled web series, and she feels right now is a very exciting time to be an actor, because there are work offers in films as well as the digital platform.

“I think OTT (Over-the-top media services) platforms are providing great content to the audience. Now, mainstream actors like Saif Ali Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and myself are working in web series. I think the lines are blurring and now an actor doesn’t think in terms of whether he or she wants to concentrate only on films or on digital platform. I think there is so much content happening, and there are great directors and great stories being. It’s a very exciting time to be in the business,” said Lara on Friday, while interacting with the media at an event to unveil her skincare line, Arias, at Health & Glow store in Mumbai.

The actress makes her digital series debut in an untitled Hotstar show that also features Karan Wahi. “I am working with Karan Wahi in a web series, and apart from us, there are other actors who feature in it. But I will talk about it in detail after some time,” she said.


Asked if she is following season 13 of “Bigg Boss” and whether she would like to participate in the reality show, Lara said she always looks forward to watching Salman Khan on screen.

“I am more excited to see Salman (Khan) anytime on screen. I watch the show for entertainment but I will not participate in ‘Bigg Boss’. I would like to visit Bigg Boss house as a guest for one episode, though. I don’t want to cage myself anywhere for three months,” said Lara.
