Rupali Ganguly REVEALS She Was A Housewife For 7 Years: 'There Was A Self-Doubt, But Anupamaa's Success Changed Everything For Me'
Rupali Ganguly reveals she was a housewife for 7 years and had self-doubts before joining Anupamaa
Rupali Ganguly is one of the most loved actresses in the industry. She is currently winning hearts with her stellar performance in Anupamaa. In a recent interview, Rupali opened up about the importance of self love and how the success of Anupamaa changed things for her. She said that she was a housewife for 7 years before bagging a role in Anupamaa and before her comeback she had self doubt about everything including her looks and body weight.
Speaking to ETimes, Rupali said that through her show Anupamaa she has learned the importance of self love. "Usually, women are not able to accept their own self and they are not able to love themselves. Ohh yaar kash mere tummy thodi kum hoti, my skin is sagging should I do something with my face. It's not like only other women do that I also sometimes think that way." She added that this constant thinking of comparison is not right and that thinking about yourself first is important.
She also revealed that before taking up Anupamaa, she had requested producer Rajan Shahi to let her lose some weight as she was the lead heroine for Anupamaa. "He told Rupali I don't want a heroine, I want a mother and you are perfect for the role because mothers are like this. Mother's don't get time to hit the gym and have a perfect figure and have a flat stomach. Maa maa hoti hai, she will first think about her kids, family, house and later maybe she will think about herself if she gets time."

The actress further went on to reveal that she was a housewife for 7 years and she had self-doubts when she joined the show. She added, "Will I look good on-screen, will I look fat? Especially when you were once known for having a good figure. So to accept yourself onscreen and what people will think of me like why she has put on so much weight, how will look, will my show be accepted because maybe I will be so bad, will I be able to act well after 7 years gap, there were so many self-doubts."
She added that now when her show receives love, it gives her confidence.
