Ever wondered what happened to yesteryear actress Mandakini ? I did some digging around, and look what I found out!
The last thing I heard about Mandakini was her association with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. I safely assumed that she was underground and it would be hard to know her whereabouts. But, I was pleasantly surprised to see Mandakini happily married and leading a very simple life.
Mandakini who shot to fame with 'Ram Teri Ganga Maili' took a setback in 1994 when photographs of her with Dawood Ibrahim started circulating. Mandakini denied all of it. She quit movies in 1996 and married Dr. Kagyur Rinpoche Thakur.
She currently runs classes in Tibetan yoga and is a follower of the Dalai Lama. Along with her husband Dr. Kagyur Rinpoche Thakur, she runs a centre for Tibetan medicine, which is commonly known as the Tibetan Herbal Centre at Yari Road in Versova. She has a son named Rabbil & a daughter Rabze Innaya Thakur & is working on a buddhist film named "The Lost Country".
Interesting set of twists and turns in her life, I must say.
Here are some photos of Mandakini with her husband and kids.
P.S: Kagyur Rinpoche Thakur is on Twitter!
