Anu Aggarwal Gets Candid About Living Life Like A Monk! Reveals She Only Had Two Sets Of Clothes: Says ‘My Hands Were Frozen For Months’
Bollywood actor Anu Aggarwal, who is best known for Mahesh Bhatt’s Aashiqui, moved away from the film industry following the discovery of her spiritual side. Now, in a recent interview, Anu recalled how she lived like a monk with only two set of clothes under freezing temperatures. 

In conversation with YouTuber Siddharth Kannan, Anu shared that when she was a monk and lived in the mountains, life was a different experience altogether. ALSO READ | DID YOU KNOW Aashiqui Fame Anu Aggarwal's Boyfriend LEFT Her Due To Fake Affair Rumours And Crap Media Stories?


“When I was a monk, we lived in -5 degree temperature. There was no geyser. I had only one bag with two sets of clothes and one sweater, I spent many years in these many clothes. Our first-class used to be at 4:30 am and for that, we had to wake up, take a bath, wash our clothes, and hang them to dry. I used to wake up at 2:30 so I could finish all these tasks before that,” she said.

She also recalled that for months on end, her hands and feet were frozen. “We would take showers in cold water, wash our clothes in cold water. For months, my hands and feet were frozen. There was one woollen cap I would wear because I was bald. But after all that, the entire day used to be very peaceful,” she said.


Anu also added she was far away from ‘getting away from luxury’.

Interestingly, Anu even pointed out how the life of zen sounded completely opposite to how she lived a few years ago when she had found fame in the Hindi film industry. 

During the interview, Anu recalled that her car was once mobbed at Mumbai’s Marine Drive. 


Recalling the incident, she said, “There was a huge jam on Marine Drive after people spotted my car. The signal turned green but no cars moved ahead. People left their cars and came running towards mine. They started banging my windows. I didn’t have a driver on that day and I was driving the car and I was thinking that these people might damage the car. I am a fearless person but on that day, for the first time in life, I experienced fear. There were thousands of people beating my car down, screaming ‘Anu, Anu’. If they would have gotten hold of me, I don’t know what would have happened.” ALSO READ | SHOCKING!
