EXCLUSIVE: Rupali Ganguly: Anupamaa lets me be ‘myself’; Show and Rajan Shahi have given me my due as an actor
Rupali Ganguly is winning hearts with her powerful portrayal of Anupamaa Shah in Star Plus’ show Anupamaa. With record-breaking TRP charts, it wouldn’t be wrong to call ‘Anupamaa’ the star on Television right now. Before Anupamaa, Rupali Ganguly was on sabbatical from work. She was busy nurturing her son Rudransh and taking care of her family. In a recent exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, Rupali Ganguly opened up about why Anupamaa is special, and how it helped her overcome her body-conscious attitude.
“The beauty of Anupama is that it lets me be myself. Here in the outdoor we shoot, we eat, so yes I have been enjoying food. I have seen a lot of people on our sets who are on a diet who count how many chamach dal khayi hai. And this beautiful beautiful journey as Anupamaa lets me be myself and I am not conscious of my body anymore because people love me for who I am portraying. Our mothers always looked like this where were they like 36/24/36,” Rupali shared.
Rupali took the big decision to get back into action and leave her child at home. Though she feels a little guilty, Rupali has the support of her husband at all stages. “My husband says that when my son grows up, he will be very proud of my body of work. And this is what keeps me going,” she said.

She added, “Kismat se actors ko apna due milta hai. I think Anupamaa and Rajan Shahi have finally given me my due as an actor. I knew I wanted to do Anupamaa because it is extremely close to my heart. The show makes me feel like it is my father who is there writing the script. Anupamaa is like the kind of films my father made.”
Anupamaa started its journey on Television back on 13 July 2020 after delays due to COVID. The show has been ranking at the No 1 spot since the beginning. Anupamaa features Rupali Ganguly, Sudhanshu Pandey, Madalsa Sharma, Alpana Buch, Arvind Vaidya, Paras Kalnawat, Aashish Mehrotra, Muskan Bamne, Shekhar Shukla, Nidhi Shah, Anagha Bhosale, and Tassnim Sheikh.
