With the hit television serial ‘Anupamaa’, Rupali Ganguly has touched new heights in her career. The serial is not just topping charts but is also discussing important issues like domestic abuse, mental health, infidelity, and women’s rights in a way no other Hindi TV serial has before.

In the past, Rupali Ganguly mentioned that her husband, Ashwin, took a break from his career as a businessman to support that of his wife. According to Hindustan Times, Rupali revealed that earlier, her sole ambition in life was to get married and have a family.

“My biggest ambition in life was to get married and have a family. When my son was born in 2015, I didn’t want anything else, and just wanted to focus on him, and enjoy every millisecond of motherhood. I started late as a mother, so those moments were very precious for me.”

Just before the pandemic, she was offered the lead role in Anupamaa. Considering that her son would be home, it was difficult for her to leave him and go to work. However, it was because of Ashwin and his support that she was able to do so.

“He would go to school at 12 and come back at seven. I thought it is the right time to begin working, not realising Covid ka lockdown ho jaayega. When a show was offered to me, my husband said it’s high time I got my due as an actor. He has been managing everything since, single-handedly. I am never there, unfortunately. I feel like a failure, but my husband does so much, it’s incredible.”

“He is a hands-on father who is playing the mother’s role beautifully. I am blessed to have a man like that in my life who supports a woman so much. He doesn’t need to send his wife out for work, but he takes the onus for her to go out there and make a mark for herself. I couldn’t have asked for a better husband and role model for my son, too.”

Finally, Rupali Ganguly claimed that one has to make a lot of sacrifices for a roaring career.

“You kind of sacrifice your family time, health, sleep, a lot of things to follow a dream which perhaps your father and husband had seen for you. It does get extremely difficult at times.”

We hope that many men get inspired by this and stand as a strong pillar for their wives.
