This Bollywood actress Smilie Suri was last seen in Kalyug with Kunal Khemu and Emraan Hashmi in 2005. Now, nearly after 13 years, the actress is back in the news and grabbing headlines for her new found talent.
The 34-year-old is now a professional pole dancer and shared several videos on her Instagram page.
Smilie is the niece of Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt. This makes actors Alia Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt and Emraan Hashmi her cousins.
The actress was not in the limelight and was battling health issues and depression. She had gained weight because of Thyroid and PCOD.
Later, to cope with her health issues, the actress started practicing pole dance. This helped her come back in form and she also underwent professional training and decided to teach it to others too.
In an interview, Smiley said, "Last year I went through a bad phase in my life when my father and grandmother died. Besides, also there were so many things happening in my life..."
She added, “I found pole dance, and it has brought me a lot of emotional stability. I don’t feel the need for anyone to back me anymore. Of course, still there are days when I cry myself to sleep, but all that takes to wipe away my blues is one student sharing how confident and independent she feels after learning the pole dance.”
"Slowly, I realised that I have to come out of it. I started working on it and today I am standing right in front of you.” said the actress.
Smilie was also seen in TV dance reality show, Nach Baliye 7 with her dance instructor Vineet Bangera in 2014. They later got married, it was love at first sight, after meeting him for the first time in his dance class.
