Mumbai | Actress Lara Dutta feels Bollywood filmmakers are now scripting a variety of roles for married heroines including those who have become mothers. Lara, 37, married Mahesh Bhupathi and has a three-year-old daughter, Saira. Today there is so much work for actresses who are married or have become mothers. 

Filmmakers have role for everyone today. There are no stereotypical roles, Lara said. She would be seen next in Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor that stars Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapoor. The former Miss Universe shares a good equation with the director and hence, she agreed to be part of the film. Abhishek is a good friend.
My role is not in the book. Its a special role. Most of my scenes are with Aditya and its great working with younger generation. Lara, who made a comeback of sorts to films with actor friend Akshay Kumar starrer Singh is Bling, is elated with the response. I am glad the film is getting overwhelming response, she added.
Besides, Lara will also be seen in Ekta Kapoor’s home production film Azhar, a biopic based on former Indian cricket player Mohammed Azharuddin. I am playing a lawyer in the film and it is too early to talk about my role, my film, she said.
