When Miss India 1993, Namrata Shirodkar had begun the shooting of her Telugu film, Vamsi, little had she known that she would find her soulmate in Tollywood’s heartthrob, Mahesh Babu. It was in the year 2000 when the Marathi mulgi and the Prince of Tollywood had met for the first time at the mahurat of their film, Vamsi. In 2005, Namrata and Mahesh had tied the knot and had begun their happily ever after. They have weaved their beautiful paradise with their two adorable children, Gautam and Sitara.
Mahesh Babu and Namrata Shirodkar had completed 16 years of marital bliss On February 10, 2021. To wish Namrata, Mahesh had taken to his IG handle and had shared a cute picture with her and had written, “Happy 16th NSG… To forever and beyond with you @namratashirodkar.” On the other hand, Namrata had shared a throwback picture with Mahesh, in which she was seen cuddling him tightly and giving a kiss on his cheek. Along with the picture, Namrata had wished Mahesh as “Easy peasy 16!! In our little recipe of marriage there’s a solid mix of love trust and faith! Counting our blessings together... forever. Happy Anniversary MB. More and more love to you @urstrulymahesh.”
A few moments back, Namrata Shirodkar penned a heartmelting birthday wish for her mother-in-law, Indira Devi. Sharing a picture of her saasu maa on her IG handle, Namrata revealed how she has always inspired her. Her caption can be read as “To the most loving and nurturing person I know, her strength and kindness continue to inspire me everyday... Happy birthday Mummy” followed by heart emoticons. On the other hand, Mahesh Babu shared a candid picture with his mother and wrote, “Happy birthday Amma... Grateful for you everyday.”
Last year on Indira Devi’s birthday, Namrata had shared a beautiful unseen throwback picture of her and had revealed what she means to her. Calling her a lethal combination of innocence and resilience, Namrata had written, “Indiramma as she’s lovingly known to the outside world!! I call her ‘mummy’... a child woman, a lethal combination of innocence and resilience... she's my reservoir of strength my version of a superwoman. Wishing her the best birthday ever... blessings and endless love. Love you mummy.”
In an interview with National Herald India, Namrata Shirodkar had recalled how she had met her husband, Mahesh Babu and how their respective parents were sceptical about their relationship. Namrata had said, “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.”
Speaking about how they had to wait for four years before getting married as it was important for them to convince their families, Namrata Shirodkar had continued, “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.”
Happiest birthday to Indira Devi!
