  • After her marriage in 2005, Gayatri Joshi quit Bollywood and the entertainment industry. In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, she revealed the reason behind quitting the entertainment industry. She stated,

    I met my husband, Vikas Oberoi, and also I was very satisfied where my career had taken me. And when I met Vikas, I realized that this was something that I wanted more than doing movies and being in Bollywood. That’s why; it was quite easy to give up that thought. I could have continued to work yet be married. But I consciously made that decision because if I am committing to something, I wanted to give my hundred per cent to it. And I always wanted to commit my hundred per cent to my marriage, to my family and to my children.”
