90s may not be called a glorious period in Indian Cinema but there are so many memories attached to that decade that even if we try we can't forget it. Every actor, small or big, had made an impression on us, be it good or bad. Even our Khans became superstars because of the films they did in the 90s. So the decade will always be special but there were a few people from that era who disappeared from the Bollywood scene suddenly. One of them was Mayoori Kango, the light-eyed beauty in Mahesh Bhatt's Papa Kehte Hai. Her beautiful eyes had become a talking point then and so was her chemistry with Jugal Hansraj in the film. We were curious to know what she is doing these days and the info left us quite surprised. The 90s actress is residing in Gurgaon with her family and is working at a company.
Speaking to Entertainment Times, Mayoori revealed, "I did about 16 films, and half of them never released. The 1990s weren't a great time for actresses. All they had to do was dance around trees. So, I took up other jobs like writing scripts and making documentaries. In 2000, I entered the TV industry. In a few years, I got married and shifted to the US." She got her MBA done and worked in USA for a few years before returning to India. "I moved to Gurgaon because my in-laws are based here and my son could be with them. Managing a successful career and a child can be taxing. You need a good support system, which was missing in the US. Also, around the same time, a lot of exciting stuff was happening in digital advertising, the sector I work for, in India. The company I work for has offices in Mumbai, Bangalore and Gurgaon, and I keep shuttling between the three cities," says Mayoori.
So is she returning to Bollywood anytime soon? "I never wanted a celeb-like life and that's why I never miss that part. The movie was incredible, but what happened next in my life was equally amazing. Today, I adore my job. I can only be part of films if it requires me to act only on weekends," Mayoori informs.
