Rajan Shahi Productions Anupamaa stars Rupali Ganguly, Sudhanshu Pandey, Madalsa Sharma, Aashish Mehrotra, Nidhi Shah, Paras Kalnawat, Anagha Bhosle, Muskan Baamne, Tasneem Sheikh in prominent roles. Rupali Ganguly has been a part of many successful shows in the past. She took a break from acting to embrace motherhood. After seven years, Rupali Ganguly made her television come back with Anupamaa. Rupali Ganguly talked about the challenges of playing the lead in Anupamaa. Rupali said,

“After I quit Parvarrish due to my pregnancy, I was busy with my home and my child (Rudransh). I enjoyed every moment of it. However, when Rajan Shahi approached me for this show, the actor in me got greedy. What further piqued my interest was the fact that the concept of the show was in the zone of my father’s (Anil Ganguly) films, like Kora Kagaz, Humkadam, and Tapasya. The women in these films were strong and empowered, just like Anupamaa. When I spoke to my husband (Ashwin Verma) about it, he told me that I hadn’t got my due as an artiste and said, ‘You should take it up and make us proud’. He took a break from his work so that I could get back to acting. In short, he gave me the wings to fly.”

In the serial Anupamaa, the lead actress is a mother of three and is in her 40s, and Rupali struck a chord with the audience. Talking about the challenges, Rupali said,

“To be 40 plus and not have a 26-inch waist when you’re playing the lead can be challenging at times. I always wondered if it would work. You can’t predict the fate of a show. I still can’t believe it’s happening to me and hope the bubble doesn’t burst.”

Rupali Ganguly added,

“I feel blessed and am filled with gratitude for this opportunity to return to TV after seven years with a role like this and getting a chance to prove myself. I have been part of some fantastic shows and played great characters, including a double role in Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahi and a negative one in Sanjivani because I was bored of playing positive characters. Then I was inundated with negative characters, but I didn’t want to repeat myself. Every artiste vies for that one role, which takes her a level up, where people start recognizing your work and acknowledging the fact that you are a good actor.”

Rupali also talked about the way her career has shaped up over the years. She added,

“There were some people who thought that I was just a fluke. But with Anupamaa, they sat up, took notice, and admitted that there is somebody called Rupali Ganguly, who acts well. While Monisha in Sarabhai vs Sarabhai got me noticed, Anupamaa has given me the platform I’ve always craved. I am glad that I have left a mark. My epitaph will perhaps read — here lies Monisha Sarabhai and Anupamaa. Despite not being conventionally good-looking, I have finally been recognized for my talent.”

Rupali Ganguly is getting praised for her titular role in the serial Anupamaa. The serial is receiving lots of love from the audience.
