Rupali Ganguly is one of the most known faces of the telly world, who rose to fame with the television show, Sarabhai vs Sarabhai. After she became a mother to Rudransh, into their lives, she had taken a sabbatical from her career. But she has made a powerful comeback with the serial, Anupamaa.
For the unversed, Rupali and her husband, Ashwin had met at an ad shoot, where they had become friends, and their friendship had bloomed further into a beautiful companionship. In their 12 years-long friendship, they had never realised that they are in love. However, they are a happily married couple now.
March 8 marks International Women's Day, and in an interview with the Pinkvilla, Rupali Ganguly shared how she is going to celebrate the day at work and then at home with her husband and son. She believes every day is Women's Day to her and she feels blessed to live her dream in real and reel life. Rupali said:
"I am one of those few blessed women who are getting to live their dream in real and reel life, so yes everyday is Women's Day for me. I will be shooting for my show. But I know my son gets very excited on Women's Day and Mother's Day, so he will make a greeting card for me. He will write 'Happy Women's Day' on a piece of paper and present it to me, but for me that is the most beautiful card in the world."
Further going into the conversation, Rupali mentioned about the women who inspire her daily. She talked about her mother and how she is full of love and would do anything for anyone. Adding to it, the actress shared:
"The first woman you look up to and learn from is your mother. My mom never went to a convent school, she was a Marathi medium student, and that too did not get to complete her education. She would do anything for anybody, and there is so much love."
While concluding her conversation, Rupali recalled how her mother thinks about everyone, even if someone is not part of their family. The actress further talked about her mother-in-law and how she inspires her. Rupali said:
“For instance, imagine if she has one roti and has to feed two kids. She will definitely feed us, but even if someone comes from outside they too will get a piece of it. It was never like if that person is not a part of our family, they won’t get a piece of it. She feels a lot for other people and would do a lot for other people. So that was my inspiration. Sometimes I would wonder why she is doing so much for others, but after growing up you realise that’s where the real happiness lies. There is my mother-in-law too, who has battled many challenging times. These are the women who have inspired me.”
Well, clearly Rupali Ganguly is an empowering woman of today's time. What do you think?
