About Rupali Ganguly and Anupamaa
Rupali Ganguly, who comes from a family in the film industry, had previously talked about how she decided to leave the industry because of things like the casting couch.
She had said, “Predominantly, the casting couch existed in the industry at that point of time. It did. Maybe some people did not come across it but people like me, we did come across it and we decided not to make that choice.”
She also talked about the prejudice she had experienced from TV and movie performers. Ganguly said that at first many thought she was a "failure" for preferring television over cinema. But today, she's proud of the choice she made, crediting her success to her part in the hit Star Plus series "Anupamaa."
