Today marks the birthday of stunning Bollywood actress and former Miss india (1993) Namrata Shirodkar who has been ruling hearts of fans and audiences from past so many years now. In a recent interview, Namrata Shirodkar gets candid on her love story with Mahesh Babu.
In her latest interview with a veteran bollywood journalist from a leading bollywood entertainment portal, Namrata Shirodkar gets candid on her love story with Mahesh Babu.
Speaking in details about how she and Mahesh met, Namrata Shirodkar gets candid on her love story with Mahesh Babu.
Bollywood’s most beautiful actress and Tollywood’s most admired wife Namrata Shirodkar was also quoted saying, “Can you believe it? Fifteen years of marriage and we are still deeply madly in love. We are still like we were in the courtship days”. Namrata fondly recalls with loads of affection and love her marriage to Mahesh Babu.
Furthermore, when the journalist told her that this is the only rock solid marriage in this indian entertainment industry apart from Sharmila Tagore and Nawab Pataudi’s which has not been mired in sea of scandals and controversies, on this Namrata replied, “What about Dilip Saab and Sairaji? Oh, there was a scandal? I didn’t know. Well, then I guess I’ve a lot to be grateful for. The thought of being unfaithful doesn’t even occur to either of us. Mahesh is so shy, he doesn’t even speak to his heroines after a shot. And it’s all about trust, believe me. I trust him completely, and I respect the fact that he trusts me. But yes, you’re right. I do envy my own marriage sometimes. Because there are so many marriages going wrong around me”.
Further, also sharing details about her father in law Namrata remembered those 4 years before their marriage and asserted, “Mahesh and I met on the sets of a film called Vamsi. It’s the only film that I did with him and it’s the worst film in both our careers. But we will be ever grateful to Vamsi. That’s where we met. I immediately knew this was the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Of course, Mahesh’s family was sceptical of me. They had nothing against me. But they knew nothing about me. Or my life as an actress in Mumbai. Come to think of it, even my parents were sceptical of Mahesh”.
She also spilled the beans about how they both had to wait for four years before getting married to each other. Highlighting this point, Namrata said, “It was very important for Mahesh to convince his family that I was the right wife for him. For four years, I just had to wait. We hardly met during those four years. All I had to do was wait for Mahesh to win over his family. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have my bouts of anxiety during those four years. But I was sure I wanted to marry only Mahesh. If not him, then no one else. And he was sure of it too”.
Throwing more emphasis on how 15 years of marriage have just flown by, Namrata elucidated on same and told, “My days are so full I don’t know when I wake and when I sleep. And you know what? I wouldn’t choose any other life for myself. My husband and my two children are my world. I am asked if I crave for me-time. I don’t! I don’t want time with gal pals. I don’t want time away from Mahesh. Even if he’s gone for two days, I miss him. I don’t have the energy or craving for expeditions and adventures outside my marriage. Do I look after Mahesh’s career? His endorsements, yes. Not his films. It’s a myth that I choose his scripts. If I had any script sense, I wouldn’t have done some of the awful films that I did during my brief career in Hindi cinema”.
Finally in a parting note, when asked about any unfulfilled wish of hers, on this Namrata signed off by telling, “None. My life with Mahesh is a dream. I just don’t want to wake up one day to realize it was just a dream. I want my children to value marriage and its obligations as much as Mahesh and me. Agreed there is a lot of hanky-panky in the entertainment industry. But Mahesh and I only have eyes for one another”.
