A few days ago, I blogged about stars that I miss from the 80s & 90s era. Because I ended with 10 stars on that list, my mind just focused on them. How dare I forget Meenaksi Sheshadri!!!!
Ever since I saw her debut film, Painter Babu, I looooooved her! I called her by her character name, Renu, for a while before I learned her real name. She was absolutely stunning and gorgeous. Her facial expressions when dancing captures your attention and heart. The emotions she portrayed turned me into a fan. When she was crying, I felt her pain and cried with her.
After making her last film, Ghathak, she settled down and married software engineer, Harish Mysore, in which she met "love at first sight." They moved to the United States to settle down.
Now, her family consists of her husband and two children -- daughter, Kendra & son, Sanjosh.
Although she decided not to return back to films, she continued to embrace in her other love, classical dancing. Living in Texas, USA, Meenakshi teaches Bharatanatyam, Kathak and Odissi.Meenakshi, you are still loved and missed. If there is a slim chance we get to see you again on the big screen, I will not hesitate at all to watch the film. Meenakshi with her daughter, Kendra. Meenakshi with her daughter, Kendra. Meenakshi with her parents.
