Rupali Ganguly has gathered a lot of love for herself with her character of Anupamaa. She is the main character of the daily soap and the show is based on her role’s name. The actress has become a household name because of her character’s simplicity and calmness. Anupamaa is one of the most-loved roles of Indian Television. However, Rupali has gone through a phase when she was subjected to body-shaming. The actress was called out by her neighbouring aunties. She had put on weight after giving birth to her son Rudransh. Thereafter, a massive weight gain happened and she was judged by elderly women of the society.
Anupamaa star Rupali Ganguly Shares She Was Body-Shamed By Neighbouring Aunties
“From 58 kilos when I delivered Rudransh, I went up to 86 kilos. When I would take my child out for a walk, certain neighbouring aunties that I didn’t even know… ‘Arre, tum toh Monisha ho, kitni moti ho gayi ho (You are the actor who plays Monisha, right? You have gained so much weight).’ Who gives anybody a right to judge a mother? Nobody knows the kind of issues that a woman is going through,” Rupali Ganguly told Bollywood Bubble in an interview.
Rupali also mentioned several health issues. She said that she had started judging herself as she did not lactate enough. She felt that she had fallen short. Therefore, she started eating everything to produce more breast milk.
In an earlier interview, Rupali had called her son a ‘miracle child.’
She had said, “I had major thyroid issues, so your fertility count does go down. There were issues and I did consult a lot of doctors. My son is no less than a miracle for me.”
She went on to add that she wanted to settle down in life and have a kid always. “Mera ambition tha shaadi karna aur bachcha paida karna. Yeh mera ambition tha life ka (My ambition in life was to get married and have kids) and finally, I was getting to be a mother and after a lot of issues, like ‘nahi ho sakta (it cannot happen)’… Having a child was difficult,” Rupali said.
