Lara Dutta born on 16th of April 1978 celebrates her 37th birthday today. On this special day I thought of doing a little scandal flashback and revealing the complete details about her controversy involving Kelly Dorjee and Dino Morea.
Lara first met Kelly during their modelling days, he being the winner of Gladrags Model Hunt contest was much more popular and started to help Lara who was still struggling to make a mark.
She owes her career to him for it is he who helped her in the initial days. After winning the Miss India and Miss Universe contest, Lara started to do well. She even debuted in the Bollywood industry and started to bag more movie projects.
This is when trouble started to brew as Lara got more famous and Kelly started to fail. In spite of the fights, Lara once said, "He (Kelly) is one of the most stable and secure men you could ever get. People tell me that any boyfriend of mine would die a thousand deaths every minute because of the kind of lifestyle I lead."
The couple could not stay together for long, Kelly's failed acting career in Bollywood and increase insecurities caused a lot of trouble. Lara's link ups to Abhishek Bachchan did not help either.
This was the time the duo decided to put a full stop to the relationship. At this point entered Dino Morea, rumours started to rise that Lara and Dino were dating, although the couple denied it, Kellu confirmed it and created a big ruckus in front of the media accusing them of betrayal.
A big scandal took place when Lara decided to back out of it, altogether. Years later she ended up marrying Mahesh Bhupathi and took a break from Bollywood and it's scandals.
Here is the complete details as to what happened...
When Lara Met Kelly
Lara Dutta met Kelly Dorjee during her struggling days in modelling, at which time Kelly was already established and was even the winner of Gladrags male model contest.
Initially the duo never accepted but after her Miss India contests and subsequently winning the Miss Universe title, they were pretty open about the relationship. Lara even accepted how much Kelly helped her career.
Trouble In Paradise
When Lara started globetrotting after her Miss Universe win, she got linked to Tiger Woods and back home Kelly was linked to Preity Zinta and Dia Mirza.
Lara and Kelly started to have a lot of fights and his failing career did not help much either. This is when they decided to split.
Dino Morea Entry
Kelly accused Dino of betraying him as Dino and Lara had started seeing each other which Kelly never expected.
Some say Dino broke them up while others say Dino dated Lara after her break up with Kelly, but whatever the story, Kelly was upset he did not know about it, till Lara confronted him.
Lara and Kelly broke up and so did Lara and Dino! At this point, Lara just started to focus on her career.
Lara Dutta came across Mahesh Bhupathi who according to sources was still not divorced from his wife. The duo apparently started to date each other at this time.
Lara did not spend much time dating and soon after his divorce, the duo wed and Lara gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in January 2012.
