They just wanted virgin…
Mahima further said, ‘Earlier your relationship had a big impact on your work. If you are dating someone then people used to write that they only wanted a virgin who had never kissed. If you are dating someone then… oh she is dating. On the other hand, if you are married then forget it… your career was over and if you have children then absolutely everything is over.
If you have played the role of mother then…
