Ushma Rathod started her career with films and suddenly vanished from the industry. Years after, she has now comeback on the small screen with Star Plus' Manmarziyan.
With the inquisitiveness growing within us, we contacted the actor to know more about what she had been doing all this while...
Ushma said, "I started my career with films like Mehendi and Sherawali playing pivotal roles. But soon after, I found myself inclined towards dance and hence I decided to call it quits from the industry. I started choreographing for wedding sangeet ceremonies on a large scale."
So what made Ushma make a comeback on television?
The good looking actor stated, "While I was pursuing my choreography, I got married and was blessed with a baby boy. My kid is now 10 years old and he suggested that I should make a comeback and how he would love to see me on television. Since I share a good rapport with Swastik Productions, I auditioned for the same and was selected to play a mother to the lead."
Hmm...While all seemed fine, we wonder if the lady regrets about having missed out on a chance to essay lead roles?
To our surprise, Ushma said that she had no regrets and was content in what she was doing.
She averred, "Look. There was a time when I could have taken up lead roles and made a successful career as an actor. But I decided my own fate. Now when I am back on television, I have no regrets about having missed out on the chance. I am content as an artist and have no hiccups essaying a mother."
We wish you luck in your career Ushma!
