Maya Alagh is a bollywood actress who had done many films and she is tv actress also. Maya Alagh, the eighties Oh-Ho girl who inspired a generation to switch from the normal to a clove-flavoured toothpaste.
"In the earlier times there were just two kinds of roles. Either sob through the film or do the scheming Lalita Pawar act," says Maya who is a doctor by profession and wife of a leading corporate hot-shot, Sunil Alagh, managing director of Britannia Industries.
Maya has played diverse roles in films but it is TV that she is best associated with. "I elected to become a modern mom and accepted only those kind of roles," says Maya who's only made an exception with royal characters in epics like Tipu Sultan and Noorjehan.
Indeed, television has opened a whole new vista for Maya Alagh and actresses of her ilk who have come to define the new-age mom. A couple of decades ago people would have been shocked out of their seats. But then times change. And so do moms.
