Today is the birthday of actress Rati Agnihotri, who won everyone's heart with her performances in Hindi and Tamil films. Rati was born in a Punjabi family in Mumbai. Rati started modeling at the age of 10. In fact, Rati was fond of acting since childhood and started modeling when she turned 10 because of this hobby. When she turned 16, her father shifted to Chennai with his family. She also used to act while studying in school here. During that time, Tamil famous director Bharti Raja was looking for a heroine for his new film.
Once Bharati Raja saw Rati acting in the school play and then he met Rati's father at the same time and promised to make the film within a month. Rati's father then allowed her to work in films. Then, at the age of 16, Rati acted in her debut film 'Pudia Varapukal' in 1979 and the film proved to be a blockbuster. Rati became a super hit after the film. She showed her strength in films but nothing good happened to her in real life.
In fact, on February 9, 1985, Rati married architect Anil Veerwani. After the wedding, she bid farewell to the film industry. In 1987, Rati and Anil had a son Tanuj and after that she became completely busy with the responsibilities of her family. After 30 years of marriage, she accused her husband Anil Veerwani of harassing, beating and threatening to kill her. Rati divorced her husband in 2015 and now lives with her son.
