MUMBAI: Actress Rupali Ganguly is all set to make her comeback to television with the show 'Anupama' after seven long years. Ganguly, however, has given all the credits to her husband, Ashwin Verma, for encouraging her to pursue acting again.
Rupali said, "I would like to give huge credit to my husband for encouraging me to take up the show. I was quite happily mothering my child, so something had to be that exciting for me to step out of the home. When I was offered the show, my husband really pushed me and said, 'I will take care of our child and the house, you go ahead because this show will give you the chance to prove your worth as an actress'."
Stating how Ashwin made her fall in love with him all over again, Ganguly said, "My mother-in-law is 87 and it is not easy for a man to run a house when there are several responsibilities. Since it is a TV show, I am shooting for 12 to 13 hours. Staying away from my baby for so long is only possible if I know that my home and my baby are in good hands. I think by taking the whole responsibility, he made me fall in love with him again."
The upcoming Star Plus show 'Anupama' is a remake of Bengali TV serial 'Sreemoyee'. The story is of a housewife which is essayed by Rupali. Directed by Rajan Shahi, 'Anupama' will air from March 16th.
Speaking about the tremendous pressure that she is facing, the actress said, "There is an insane amount of pressure and no one is putting that on me, I am putting it on myself. I have got everything I wanted, people put so much faith in me, so I have to deliver my best, really. Now I feel more nervous than that of a newcomer. I do not think I felt the pressure on my debut show. I just hope and pray that my passion and enthusiasm translate on-screen."
