"I think pageants like the Miss Universe pageant give us young women a platform to foray into the fields that we want to, forge ahead, be it entrepreneurship, be it the armed forces, be it politics. It gives us the platform to voice our choices and opinions and makes us strong and independent that we are today."
The above mentioned lines might just pass off as 'mere words' to many, but for today's Birthday girl Lara Dutta, it means the Universe to her, for it was this answer that got (read 'earned') her the much coveted Miss Universes crown!
Lara, as they say, is definitely God's best ever gift to mankind! There's nothing that's imperfect about this damsel. One look at this girl and even the term 'imperfect' gets itself split into 'I M Perfect'! A few of Lara's 'hearti-facts' in Bollywood can be witnessed (read 'experienced') in films like Andaaz, Khakee, Masti, Kaal, No Entry, Partner... to name a few. The fact also remains that the whole of Bollywood is waiting for the release of this PYT's next biggie titled Housefull, more eagerly than scientists waiting for the Halley's Comet
Please join Oneindia in wishing Lara Dutta a very happy birthday.
