Anupamaa star Rupali Ganguly is known for his successful television show, but few people know that Rupali’s father Anil Ganguly was a major filmmaker in the 1970s and directed films such as Kora Kagaz and Tapasya and many others. But despite his success, there was a point in their lives where they had to sell their house.
In a recent chat with Pinkville Rupali she remembered that her father had once made a film with Dharmendra, which was late. They had to sell their house, which was a difficult phase for the family. Actor Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai said the film business is now very organized, but back then everything was pretty crazy. “At the time, it was more about the passion to make movies than about money. Now, making movies is a good business, then it was crazy. People sold their houses so they could make movies. And if the movie fails, the house is gone. This has happened to us. “
Rupali mentioned that her father was known for making films quickly. She mentioned that the 1985 Saaheb film with Anil Kapoor, Rakhee and Amrita Singh in the lead roles was shot in 40 days. So when the movie with Dharmendra stretched, it was hard. “My dad made a movie with Dharmendra.” It dragged on for 3-4 years. We lost a lot during that. But as the saying goes, what goes up must also go down, “she recalled.
In Rupali’s chat, she also talked about how to gain fame for Anupama and how it helped her discover self-love. “As an individual, it gave me a lot.” It gave me confidence that I might be a good actor. Not that I didn’t respect myself, but there was no self-love. There is a custom value (now). There is a certainty that maybe I can do my craft, “she said.
Anupamaa’s prequel Anupamaa – Namaste America will start streaming on Hotstar from April 25.
