Anita Hassanandani is one of the most prominent and glamorous actresses in the television industry. She was last seen in “Naagin 5”, after which she gave birth to her first child, Aarav, with her husband, Rohit Reddy. After that, Anita is on maternity leave.
In a recent interview, the actress said now that she is a mother, she will be leaving showbiz to spend time with her child.
Speaking to ETimes, the 40-year-old said: “I had decided that every time I had a child I would quit the industry and give up my job. I always wanted to focus on doing “Being a mother. So it’s not about a pandemic, I would have left the industry anyway, pandemic or no pandemic. I want to be home with my child.”
When asked if she would ever return to television, the actress said she doesn’t think about work and wants to be stress-free and safe in the midst of the pandemic.
“Honestly, work is the last thing I think about right now. I really don’t know when I will be back. Although I work here and there because of the contracts I had signed with different brands. I do all of this for social media where I shoot at home and it’s totally stress-free. I am also extremely careful. Maybe a person will come to shoot and the person will also need to have a suitable test before entering the house. But going back to a full-fledged set of a TV show, I don’t know when that will happen. But I’m sure when I decide to come back people will learn about it, ”she said.
Anita and Rohit welcomed their baby boy, Aarav, in February this year and are currently enjoying parenthood. They often use their respective Instagram handles to share a preview of their little munchkin, who already has fan pages on the social media platform.
Recently, Anita made headlines after giving her support to her ‘Naagin’ co-star Pearl V Puri, who was arrested on June 4 for allegedly raping a minor in 2019.
