In an interview with Brut India, Lara Dutta revealed that she was in shock when she found out that her daughter, Saira was aware of the concept of divorce at the age of four. Lara Dutta spoke about Mahesh Bhupathi's favourite series, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. She also revealed that her daughter was hooked to the show just like her dad. Lara said:
“His favourite show ever is Friends, which he got my daughter hooked on to when she was just four years old. So at four, my daughter came and asked me one day, 'Mum...' she was playing a game and she said, 'Oh, I'm living. This is my house, that's your house and I'm divorce."
Further in the interview, Lara Dutta shared that she had almost got a heart attack after listening the word 'divorce' from her daughter. Talking about the same she said:
"And I almost had a heart attack, because I was just like 'What are you saying? Who told you? What is divorce?' and she's like, 'Oh, when two people are in a bad marriage and don't get along and they're living separately, it means they are divorced.”
Lara Dutta further shared that she was very curious to know, how her daughter, Saira, came to know this word. So she asked her daughter, who explained to her the meaning of divorce. Talking about the same, Lara said:
“Who told you this?' She said, ‘Daddy did’. I was like (gesturing a phone call) 'Mahesh, why the hell have you told her what divorce is?' and he started laughing. He was like, 'No we were watching Friends and she wanted to know why was Ross married three times.' I was like, 'So you told her the meaning of divorce?' That's the kind of parents we are.”
