Arvind Vaidya in a recent interview talked about Rupali Ganguly’s transformation from Monisha to Anupamaa. Arvind and Rupali played Madhusudhan Fufa and Monisha in Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai and are now seen sharing the screen in Anupamaa.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Vaidya said, “When I was told about her, I was taken aback. I wondered that she was known for Monisha, how will she play Anupama as it requires a massive transformation. But I must admit her transformation has been beautiful, which also shows how good an actor she is. You can feel the range. I am so proud of her.”
He further said, “We don’t act. Also, Rupali and other actors from Sarabhai would often meet at someone’s residence, usually it would be at JD Majethia or Aatish Kapadia’s house. In fact, even today JD calls me Bapuji, and so does Rupali.”
In Anupamaa, while Rupali plays Anupamaa, Vaidya is seen in the role of her father-in-law Hasmukh Shah. The show launched last year in July and is one of the most popular shows on TV. Along with Rupali, Sudhanshu Pandey, who made his TV debut with the show, is seen in the lead role.
