New Delhi: Actor Anita Hassanandani has revealed to quit acting and said that it was a decision that she had taken long ago. She said that the decision has not come amid the prevailing surge of the pandemic, but she has decided to be at home to take care of her newborn son, adding that work is last thing on her mind right now.
Speaking with a leading daily, Anita Hassanandani 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."
"Although I am doing some work here and there because of the contracts that I had signed with different brands. 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. 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," she added.
Anita Hassanandani and her husband Rohit Reddy welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on February 9.
Anita and Rohit Reddy tied the knot in 2013 in Goa. In an Instagram post last year, Anita had said, “It just felt like the perfect timing. We have been together for 10 years, out of which we have been married for seven years. We were absolutely ready. We wanted to settle with a baby this year and it happened perfectly."
