Do you still hum the song, Ghar Se Nikaltehi, Kuch Door Chaltehi, every once in a while? If you do, then you must remember the baby-face who was associated with the song. Her name is Mayuri Kango.
Besides the song, Mayuri was also famous for acting in films like Papa Kehte Hai, Betaabi (1997), Hogi Pyaar Ki Jeet (1999) and Badal (2000).
After her last film, she was not to be seen anymore, and many wondered where she had disappeared off to. Well, we’ve finally found out! Mayuri is now working as Chief Analog to Digital Conversion Officer at Zenith Optimedia in Gurgaon, Haryana, India.
In contrast to her job a performer, she now oversees a team that converts data from analogue to digital format, which is a task that needs a high degree of precision, as an IT officer. The talented Mayuri is not only managing her role, but she also leads a whole team that interprets data! Amazing, isn’t it?
Well, it turns out that after her Bollywood career was over, she did her MBA in marketing and finance and worked in the US from 2004 up until 2012. She now resides in Gurgaon, also known as India's newest IT hub, and often hangs out with colleagues in Cyber Park and Golf Course.
Once a known face in Bollywood, one would wonder if anybody still recognises her. In a recent conversation with a journalist, Mayuri revealed, "Every time a new client sees me, they have the same question “How come you’re here?” I have the answered the question so many times that some colleagues suggested that I record it now. But I have to prove myself in every new meeting as people have a notion that actors are not intelligent. I have worked hard to make people take me seriously.” She adds, “People should complete their education before they come looking for that big break in Bollywood. Especially the actress ' their career in the industry lasts only around ten years. They need to have a backup option.”
