Mumbai: Television actor Anita Hassanandani, who is best known for her role in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein called it quits for her acting career after giving birth to son Aaravv. Calling it a decision taken long ago, Hassanandani further said that she wants to be at home with her baby boy adding that the decision is not because of the pandemic. The 40-year-old actor then stated she has her priorities clear. The actor said work is the last thing on her mind. In an interview with a leading daily, 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.”

Clearing the rumours saying Hassanandani left work due to the pandemic, the actor further clarified, “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.”

The actor still keeps on doing brand endorsements and promotions through her social media. That is something she will continue to do… “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.”

Adding to that, Hassanandani further said that going back to star in a full fledged serial is off the charts for now. “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 and Rohit Reddy rang wedding bells in the year 2013. Following so, the couple welcomed their son Aaravv in February this year.

Television serials like Kkavyanjali, Naagin, and Yeh Hai Mohabbatein are some of Anita’s applauded work. She has also starred in Bollywood films like Ragini MMS 2, Krishna Cottage and Kucch Toh Hai.
