The ‘Partner’ actress was once offered a role in the popular movie franchise The Matrix years back, but she had to turn down the role. During a media conversation, Lara revealed that it was a tough time for her as her mother was unwell.

Lara was quoted saying, “It was a tough time. I had not even started out in Bollywood. But I was very clear about what I wanted in life. Everything else came second, I just had to be with my mother at the time. I did not even think twice and came back to India.”

“And, it wasn’t like I came here thinking we have Bollywood (as a backup, since I gave up on a huge Hollywood opportunity). I just had to be with my mother at the time since she was unwell, extremely unwell. Therefore, I did not even think twice and came back to India.”
