South actress Namrata Shirodakar recently opened up about why she left her acting career after her marriage to actor Mahesh Babu. Namrata Shirodkar who appeared in several hit movies like Kachche Dhaage with Ajay Devgn, Vaastav: The Reality with Sanjay Dutt, and others recently opened up on quitting her acting career after marriage. Namrata revealed that her husband Mahesh Babu wanted a “non-working” wife and hence he asked her to quit acting.
In an interview with a Telugu YouTube channel, Prema – the journalist, Namrata opened up about leaving films, she said, “Mahesh was very clear that he wanted a non-working wife. Even if I was working in some office, he would have told me to leave work. There are certain things we had for each other,”
She added, “We were very clear that we will live in an apartment first after marriage because I was from Mumbai, and I didn’t know how I would fit into these huge bungalows. I used to get scared so he moved into an apartment with me. That was my condition that if I’m going to come to Hyderabad, I will live in an apartment. Similarly, he was also clear that he didn’t want me to work. Which is why we also took some time so that I finish shooting for all my films. When we got married, I had no work, so I wrapped up all my pending movies. We were clear. There was a lot of clarity among us,”
Namrata further stated that she doesn’t regret leaving her career for her marriage, she said, “I got into acting which was the obvious next step and by the time I really enjoyed my work and thought seriously about my craft, I met Mahesh and we got married. If I had taken my work seriously, my life would have been very different from what it is now…so I’m not complaining,”
