Anupamaa: Here's How Rupali Ganguly Feels Facing The Camera After 7 Years

Actress Rupali Ganguly, who took a seven-year sabbatical from acting, said she had mixed feelings about facing the camera after such a long time. The Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai actress is back on the small screen with the show Anupamaa, which is about a homemaker, who undermines herself while taking care of her family and their needs. “Sometimes I feel I never went away, and sometimes I feel ‘Oh damn! I don’t know anything anymore’. So, it feels familiar but at the same time, it feels intimidating because when you come back in a fantabulous role and a phenomenal show like this, only very blessed and special people get a comeback like this.” she said. Talking about how she feels working in the show, Rupali said, "I cry every time I read the script. Anupamaa was a once in a lifetime opportunity, which I couldn’t let go. After the shoot, I can’t even go and hug my child, it’s so upsetting. I have not hugged him and kissed him or sat closer to him, and yesterday he came and asked me ‘Mumma, when will I kiss you again, after six months?’ I cried, my heart broke.” “But then when I see Anupamaa, I feel somewhere it is getting compensated. Maybe now he feels that my mother is not there with me, but once he grows up and he will watch the show, he will be so proud of me,” she added.
