Television actress Anita Hassanandani has quit acting. Anita, who has worked in shows like Kkavyanjali, Naagin, and Yeh Hai Mohabbatein revealed she has quit acting after her son Aaravv Reddy’s birth. Anita and her husband Rohit Reddy welcomed their first child a few months ago. The couple constantly shares adorable pictures and videos on social media. In an interview recently, the actress shared that quitting showbiz was a decision taken long ago. Anita mentioned she always wanted to focus on being a mother.
Speaking with the Times of India, Anita Hassanandani revealed that she wants to be at home with her newborn son. Talking about it further, the actress said, “I had decided that whenever I would have a child, I would leave the industry and let go of my work. I always wanted to focus on being a mother. So it's not about the pandemic, I would have either way left the industry, pandemic or no pandemic. I want to be at home with my kid. Honestly work is the last thing on my mind right now. I really don’t know when I will get back."
The Naagin actress mentioned that she is doing some work because of the contracts she has signed with different brands. She added, “I am doing all this for social media where I am shooting at home and it is totally stress-free. I am being extremely careful too.” Anita continued, “Maybe one person will come to shoot and the person too has to have a proper test done before coming inside the house. But getting back on a full-fledged set of a TV show, I don’t know when that will happen. But I am sure when I decide to get back, people will get to know."
Anita Hassanandani and Rohit Reddy were blessed with Aaravv in February this year. The couple had tied the knot in 2013 in Goa. In her long acting career, the actress has also featured in films like Krishna Cottage etc. Also Read: Anita Hassanandani Shows Off Her ‘Magic Trick’, Pranks Hubby Rohit Reddy Once Again, Leaving Him Shocked- VIDEO
