On this special occasion, let us know the interesting stories related to Namrata Shirodkar which very few people know. Namrata Shirodkar was born in 1972 to a Brahmin family in Maharashtra. Namrata's grandmother Meenakshi was also a great actress of her time.
Namrata, who won the Miss India award in 1993, stepped into Bollywood through the film Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai. One of her best films was Vaastav. But even after that, the actress's career remained the same. That's what you will be surprised to know that she was actually having an affair with Mahesh Manjrekar while shooting for the movie. Mahesh Manjrekar also gave Namrata a character in many films but even then the relationship between the two did not last long.
Namrata acted in movies like Pukaar, Hera-Feri but she wasn't successful in Bollywood. After all this, she made her debut in South films. She did the film Vamsi in 2000. As a result, she met Mahesh Babu, a famous actor in the South Indian film industry. At the end of the shooting of the same movie, the two fell in love with each other.
