Rupali Ganguly Recalls Her Life As A Homemaker, Reveals She Had Been Rendered Jobless For 6.5 Months

Rupali Ganguly is one of the most popular divas of Tinseltown. Remembered for her portrayal of the character of ‘Monisha’ in the hit sitcom, Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai, she is currently garnering household recognition for her work in the serial, Anupama. Speaking about her personal life, the diva is married to Ashwin K Verma and the duo is blessed with a son, Rudransh.

Rupali Ganguly recalls being out of work for 6.5 months

In a recent interaction with Pinkvilla, Rupali Ganguly candidly spoke about gender equality, and reminisced about her past, when she had been a homemaker. She mentioned that she didn’t do any work for 6.5 months and was busy fulfilling the needs as a wife and mother. Adding how that had been the way in which most women were channelised, Rupali said:

“I think my life was more hectic, more stressful, more hard work when I was just a homemaker for those 6.5 years. So during this time when I was home, I used to wake up early before everyone woke up. No one ever told me to wake up early. My husband really pampers me. But that is the way our upbringing is and that is the way we are conditioned that it has to be done and I'll have to do it. "

Rupali busts the myth of gender-based roles, credits her husband, Ashwin for managing the home

Further in the interaction, Rupali busted the myth of women stereotypically been meant for household chores, and added how on the contrary, it is now her husband who has taken up the role of a homemaker and has been acing his roles effortlessly. In her words:

“My husband does everything. From cooking to everything, and today he is the homemaker and I am very proud of the fact that he is the homemaker. So blessed am I. But at that time I was supposed to do everything." 


Rupali reveals how she manages her work schedule and yet space out time for her family

In the concluding segment of the interview, Rupali spilt beans on her hectic schedule and shared how she manages to ace both her professional commitments, and be able to spend equal time with her family. The diva mentioned that since she loves both of her duties, it is that very feeling which energises her to perform both duties without fail. She mentioned:

“Today, I am working 12 hours a day minimum shift. I travel 1 hour to work and back an hour from work. So that's like 14 hours minimum in a day I have work but this also is manageable and then go home, play with my son, and be with my husband. When I go to shoot, I just dress up, do makeup, and do the acting which comes easy and naturally to me. I do get tired at times but it is something you love and every morning I wake up I feel blessed that I have work to go to.”
