Former Miss Universe and actress Lara Dutta have disclosed about competing along with Priyanka Chopra and Dia Mirza. Lara said her priority was to take the Miss Universe crown at home. More than that, she has helped Priyanka and Dia by teaching them how to apply make up and assisting in decking up in the outfits. According to her, moments like these mean more to her than achievements and failures.
Lara disclosed her words when she was asked in a recent interview. She said, "For me, it was winning Miss India and Miss Universe; the entire focus is there, but at the same time you don't forget that you are human and achievements or failures, without trying to sound morbid, once you're gone aren't really going to matter."
She continued talking, "You know you get very few moments in your life when you reach out and do something for someone, and those are the moments that meet life. And if I can't do that, then I am not living, and I don't want any of it because that's the most important thing for me."
Priyanka disclosed that, similar to Lara's statement in the 'Simi's Chat Show', she also said that she used to call Lara' Mom.' Priyanka said, "I looked up to Lara quite a bit because she'd had so much experience. Dia was 18, and I was 17, and we were like these little babes. We used to call Lara's mom'. I wouldn't know what to wear or how my makeup was. And I remember one time she took me to the bathroom and showed me the right makeup to use for my skin. Totally look up to her for that."
