Namrata Shirodkar is one of the most loved actresses of all time. The gorgeousness, who went on to wear the Miss India crown in 1993, became a popular face. She was seen in films like Bride and Prejudice and Vamsi, and many more. However, she left acting just after her wedding to South Industry's superstar, Mahesh Babu. While many wondered why Namrata's sudden disappearance from the filmy world, she revealed the reason during a podcast years later. The interview resurfaced on Reddit, and netizens are wondering why.
A marriage is an effort, where two people cooperate and connect in a way to fill each other's gaps. And Namrata Shirodkar's marriage with Mahesh Babu is a perfect example of it. During an interview with a Telugu YouTube channel, Prema – The Journalist, Namrata first time revealed the reason for not working in films after marriage. She accepted that Mahesh Babu never wanted a working wife.
Elaborating her husband, Mahesh's perspective further, Namrata shared that even if she worked in an office, he would have told her to leave it. Namrata also shared that it wasn't just Mahesh, who kept his point of view across, she also clearly told him that she cannot live in a bungalow. So, after their wedding, he moved with her to an apartment. She added that they were clear about what they wanted from the relationship.
As soon as the screenshot of the interview was uploaded by a user on Reddit, netizens flooded the comments section. Most people loved how Mahesh Babu and Namrata Shirodkar put across their point of view before saying 'yes' to the marriage. One user wrote, "It's not like he forced her to be a housewife. He just told her his preference from the start, never deceived her or anything, and if she didn't agree or still wanted to do films, she could have decided not to marry him." Another commented, "He didn't force her, he told her everything, and it was her call to agree to those terms or not. She knowingly agreed, so I don't see any problem here...."
Namrata has been a part of some famous films like Kacche Dhaage, Vaastav: The Reality, Pukar, Dil Vil Pyar Vyar, and Bride and Prejudice. The actress married Mahesh Babu in 2005 and left the world of glam and glitz. The couple is parents to a daughter, Sitara Ghattamaneni and a son, Gautam Ghattamaneni. Their ten-year-old daughter is already a known face as she is an influencer and a model.
