Speaking in a recent interview, the mother of two who returned to acting, a few months after giving birth to her second child said she only took a break from acting as something more important came along.
She denied reports that her father-in-law and her husband had asked her to stop acting hence her absence from the movie industry.
Dakore said, “That was a lie. People just cook up stories from nowhere and some other people will just believe them. They didn’t see me for a while and they started peddling rumors about me. I just had to take a break from acting. Something more important came along. I fell in love. I had to give more time to my relationship to make sure I nurtured it away from the public eyes as much as I could. I took an inadvertent break to focus on my relationship. Being a career woman is great and I was lucky to have some success at it. But at the end of the day, family and having a stable, happy home is more important to me and I knew that something would have to give in. At that time, it was my career that had to give in. Nobody told me to stop acting. Not my father-in-law, not my husband.”
She however said depending on how her husband goes about it, she will quit acting
“Of course I will. And that will be my husband. There will have to be a way he will go about that. Yes I will.”
Dakore has featured in countless movies including, Journey to self, Unconditional, Emotional Crack, Dangerous Sisters, Before the Sunrise, amongst other movies.
One of her recent movies include ‘Hear Word’.
Dakore had earlier said her husband supports her returning to acting, 100%.
