Rupali Ganguly Opens Up About Why She Took A Break In Her Career. Says That It Was For Her Family

By  | 

I feel like one of the most popular shows in Indian entertainment in recent times has to be Anupamaa. Rupali Ganguly essays the role of the titular character and people have loved watching her onscreen. Other than the nostalgia she gives a lot of us owing to her work in Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai, her character is a divorced woman who is trying to rebuild her life and find love in a society that shames divorced women for doing so. Recently, she opened up about her experience working on Anupamaa and why she took a long break.

Rupali Ganguly recently spoke with Humans Of Bombay about her work and thanked her father and husband Ashwin for their unwavering support. The actress also discussed her popular sitcom Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai, revealing that her friendship with her co-stars is still intact and that they have a fantastic camaraderie. Many people know that after this show, the actress took a long sabbatical and stepped away from the spotlight for a while. Rupali Ganguly said that everyone was surprised when she decided to take a break when she was at the pinnacle of her career. She further said she had no regrets about this as she was once told that she would never conceive so her son taking his first steps was special; the next six years were all about family.

Rupali went on to say that she lost her father and was still mourning when she was offered Anupamaa. Her husband was supportive and encouraging but she was still unsure. So she went to her producer, Rajan Shahi and asked him to give her time to get in shape. Shahi told her that he wants a mother and not a heroine. Rupali said that his conviction is responsible for the show’s success.
