In 1997, Mahima Chaudhry entered Bollywood with Subhash Ghai's Pardes opposite Shah Rukh Khan. The movie continues to be one of everyone's favourite and its songs still being hummed by millennials. While Mahima managed to pick some good scripts, she took a break from showbiz post-2010 making blink and miss appearances on Television. She did continue to do events and live shows during the last decade but was more or less away from the usual showbiz buzz. 

In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, we asked Mahima why did she take a break from films post-2010. To this, Mahima reiterated that back then getting married was considered as a message that there won't be any parts for them. "Back then, it was very clear that if an actor is married, there is no part for them. There are so many people who braved them before us like Sharmila Tagore ji, Rekha ji, Shabana Azmi Ji, they continued with their work. But generally, the attitude was that oh, she is getting married."

She continued, "Be it me, or Karisma, mostly it was like that. I didn't really have any ope but I was keen to start a family, so I was happy. I did do shows and Television in between and do events, films never came, a few parts came here and there which I declined."

Kajol thrives on mediocrity, she and her loud squealing voice sends headache to the brains!

I agree, Kajol screeches and screams her way through films. She was only a hit because of her superb chemistry with SRK

She was blacklisted due to her conflict with Subhash Ghai, she didn't get married after her first film, it was much later.

Well Subhash Ghai was wrong for wanting a share of her future earnings just becuase he launched her. She must have known she's risking her career but good on her for standing up to a bully.
