In an interview on Rendezvous With Simi Garewal in the year 2006, Priyanka Chopra had said that she and Dia referred to Lara as “mom.” The actor said that the Miss Universe 2000 always guided them in terms of clothing and makeup throughout the competition. “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 ‘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 she showed me the right makeup to use for my skin. Totally look up to her for that.”

On the work front, Lara will next appear in the show Ranneeti: Balakot & Beyond. Meanwhile, Priyanka is filming for Heads of State..
