Namrata Shirodkar on quitting acting after marriage with Mahesh Babu
Revealing why she quit acting in the interview, former actress Namrata Shirodkar said, "Because Mahesh Babu was very clear that he wanted a non-working wife. Even if I was working in some office, he would have told me to leave work. There are certain things we had for each other. We were very clear that we will live in an apartment first after marriage because I was from Mumbai and I didn't know how I would fit into these huge bungalows. I used to get scared so he moved into an apartment with me. That was my condition that if I'm going to come to Hyderabad I will live in an apartment. Similarly, he was also clear that he didn't want me to work. Which is why also we took some time so that I finish shooting for all my films. When we got married, I had no work, I wrapped up all my pending movies. We were clear. There was a lot of clarity among us."

Namrata also further revealed that she and Mahesh wanted to have kids soon after marriage and that daughter Sitara is an 'unplanned baby'. The former actress said acting is 'big no' for her now. She mentioned that she doesn't have the 'patience to leave her family behind and be on sets'.
