New Delhi: Yesteryears actress Mamta Kulkarni’s news about her whereabouts and controversial rumours of conversion to Islam had always been on and off the headlines. The glamorous diva from the 90’s is again in news, but this time for turning into a spiritual devotee.
According to a daily, the 41-year-old actress has written a spiritual book ‘Autobiography Of An Yogini’(sic), by Mamta Kulkarni; wherein she has illustrated the reasons for her exit from Bollywood and staying away from the public eye for more than a decade.
Kulkarni had earlier disclosed the cause for leaving Bollywood to an entertainment website by saying, “Some are born for cause of world … some are born as cause for God, I fall for latter part. So, the call to go to my actual cause of my existence was inevitable (sic).”
When asked about her Bollywood comeback plans, she said, “I am laughing, is it possible for ghee to become milk again? Is it possible for Rishi Valmiki to become Vallya again? My real heroes have changed from Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir to first the Father, and Lords of all religions.”
Kulkarni, who refused to reveal her whereabouts, didn’t dither a bit to criticize her contemporaries in the interview.
“In these 12-13 years, not even my family knew where I was and what I was doing, as this was the demand of the spiritual world .... The Mamta Kulkarni they knew (to be leading) a previous celebrity’s life had/was already burning into ashes. Out of 24 hours, 18 hours went in God’s service ... where was the time to see or hear anyone? I didn’t apply makeup for 12 years, didn’t visit a beauty parlour for 12 years, didn’t watch a movie for 12 years, didn’t look in the mirror for 12 years!” she said.
The former sexy siren used this opportunity to rubbish the rumours of her marriage to alleged drug-lord Vicky Goswami.
“I was never married to no one, neither am I still married to anyone. My penance got over and Vicki was released ... I love Vicki but even he knows my first love now is God (sic),” she said.
