Rupali Ganguly: For me, every day is women’s day

Rupali Ganguly’s character of Anupamaa, in Rajan Shahi and Deepa Shahi’s popular show Anupamaa on Star Plus, has encouraged women across all ages and groups to stand up for themselves and fight for their rights. The actress says she is blessed to have this character, which is all about women’s empowerment.

Speaking on the occasion of International Women’s Day, which is observed on March 8, she said, “I am blessed to have been playing a character that has impacted women’s power and highlighted the strength of women, and I feel so blessed. This role is more than a dream role to me, and I am fortunate that Rajan Ji gave me this chance and opportunity.” 

“For me, every day is women’s day because we portray such a strong character, and I feel blessed every day,” she added.

Rupali called producer Deepa Shahi her inspiration for starting a career at the age of 78. She further said, “Anupamaa takes a lot from her and her personal experiences. No matter what happens, we have to move forward and start from a new point. I think the quality of being completely resilient is like a phoenix every time.”

Rupali is all praise for Rajan and has called him her guide and mentor. “I wouldn’t dare call him my friend. He’s the maker of Anupama. So for me, whatever I am today, he’s behind it. There must be so many better actors than me who are just waiting for that one chance, that one opportunity to show off their talent. But if he hadn’t  given me a chance, I would have never been able to show my talent. Rajan ji has always encouraged me as an actor, has always been the driving force behind the entire unit, and has always been proud of my achievements,” she said.

Praising the producer she says, Rajan ji is wonderful and super intelligent, and Anupamaa is his vision. I can never own Anupamaa because it belongs to Rajan Shahi. I feel blessed to be playing Anupamaa
