“The entertainment industry isn’t secure. If you fail to make a mark, you might not get good work later. So, it is important for every actor to have a plan B to bank on. Here, nothing lasts forever. That’s why my husband pushes me to do different things in life,” says the actor.

Anita Hassanandani is thrilled about her upcoming birthday. She turns 35 on April 14, and her husband, Rohit Reddy, has bought shares of an online start-up as a gift for her. The portal will sell a variety of bags, and Anita has decided to design a few of them. “I am excited to be part of this business venture. Rohit feels I have good taste, and this venture should work for the both of us,” says the actor, adding, “This was an unexpected gift. I am very happy about it.”

Anita, who has been part of the television industry for the past 17 years, knows that being financially secure is a must. Therefore, she feels that designing and launching her own line of signature bags for women is a good business decision. “The entertainment industry isn’t secure. If you fail to make a mark, you might not get good work later. So, it is important for every actor to have a plan B to bank on. Here, nothing lasts forever. That’s why my husband pushes me to do different things in life,” says the actor, whose mother was also a fashion designer.

Anita has a personal handbag collection of over 60 pieces. “I get bored of carrying the same bag often. So, I end up buying more,” she says. The actor also loves celebrating birthdays, and “reminding people” that her birthday is close. “Rohit and I give surprises to each other on our birthdays, and I am sure he has something special lined up for me this year too,” says Anita, recalling that Rohit took her to Udaipur (Rajasthan) for her birthday last year.
