It has been 14 long years since Mahesh Babu and Namrata Shirodkar tied the knot. However the couple fell in love long before that. They met on the sets of their movie Vamsi in 2000 and their love saga continues ever since, growing with each passing day even.
In times of divorces and separation, the monogamy comes in as a refreshing change. Mahesh Babu and Namrata Shirodkar recently gave an interview to Vogue, in which they spoke about their love life, what they feel about each other and how did they manage to keep their wedding going.
Mahesh Babu especially happened to reveal that space was an important factor in their wedding. “Namrata and I have been married for 14 years. We understand each other well. And we let each other be. That’s the most important secret to a successful marriage. Space. And of course, children – they ground you. I have to credit my dad for teaching me that. When he came home to us, he wasn’t a star,” he said, while spilling tips about how to keep a happy marriage.
Mahesh Babu and Namrata are blessed with two kids – a son named Gautham and a daughter Sitara. Namrata, who was a well-known film actress, quit movies after being married to Mahesh Babu, and became the caretaker of their babies.
