Lara Dutta's latest Instagram entry comes with nostalgia alert. On Saturday, the 41-year-old actress posted an almost 20-year-old photograph from her pageant days. BTW, did we tell you that the million-dollar-picture also features her fellow contestants Priyanka Chopra and Dia Mirza, who represented India at the international beauty pageants and even won the titles. Lara juxtaposed the throwback pictures of all three actresses along with relatively recent photographs. In her post, Lara revealed that she posted the throwback picture a while go and someone gave it a then-and-now twist, which she simply loved. As of now, Priyanka Chopra and Dia Mirza have not reacted to Lara's post, but we would love to see their response.
Sharing the post on her Instagram profile, Lara Dutta wrote: "I had posted the above picture a while ago but came across this edit on Instagram and really loved it. Then-and-now! Coming up to 20 years, you guys. I love you both loads. So happy we'll always have this that ties us together. One for the Motherland."
