Rupali Ganguly is one of the most loved actresses in the telly world. She had become a huge sensation for her stint as ‘Monisha Sarabhai’ from the show, Sarabhai vs Sarabhai. In 2013, Rupali had tied the knot with her long-time friend, Ashwin K Verma, whom she had known for 12 years. In 2015, Rupali had embraced motherhood and had welcomed a baby boy, Rudransh. After delivering her baby boy, Rupali had taken a sabbatical from acting.
Rupali is a hands-on mother, who dotes on her son, Rudransh. On March 21, 2021, Rupali had taken to her IG handle and had shared adorable selfies with her sonshine. Calling him a miracle baby, Rupali had written, “You are my Sonshine… You are my Sun, my Moon, and my Star. I love u so much that I wish I had two hearts to love u more my Baby. My miracle - My Rudransh. Baapu ka beta.”
In an interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan, Rupali talked about the difficulties she had faced while conceiving her son, Rudransh. Revealing her health problems, Rupali 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.”
Rupali also stated how she always wanted to get married and settle down but never thought having a child would be this difficult. In her words, “Mera ambition tha shaadi karna aur bachcha paida karna. Yeh mera ambition tha life ka and finally, I was getting to be a mother and after a lot of issues, like ‘nahi ho sakta’... Having a child was difficult.”
A few days back, Rupali was tested COVID positive and had quarantined herself. On April 5, 2021, she had turned a year older but couldn’t celebrate the special day with her loved ones. But her family had made sure to surprise her by celebrating her birthday. Rupali had shared glimpses of her 44th 'quarantined birthday' celebration on her IG handle. She had captioned the video as “When ur family decides to make it special despite the quarantine awwwwwwwwwww Thank u @vijayganguly @ashwinkverma for making the efforts and making my Rudransh, my little Jojo bunny cut the cake THU THU THU thank u. Soon we shall all celebrate together. Ps- please ignore my scary laughter. Quarantine day 4! Can’t smell anything anymore.”
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Rupali had opened up on why she had taken a sabbatical from work for seven-years. The gorgeous actress had shared, "Seven years back after I gave birth, I gained weight. My body changed and I couldn’t look at myself. I would not step out of the house afraid of what people would say. If I couldn’t look at myself, why would people want to look at me? Self-doubt started seeping in. So, when Sarabhai 2.0 happened, I somehow managed to get out but then I realised I don’t want to leave my child alone. Hence, when an offer would come up, I would quote ridiculous figures."
Here’s wishing all the best to Rupali for her future endeavours.
