Spread the love

The popular show Anupamaa recently witnessed the #maankishaadi. Finally, Anupama aka Rupali tied the knot with Anuj aka Gaurav Khanna in the show. The fans are elated to watch the duo getting married.

During a recent interview with BT, Rupali talked about it and shared, “Weddings are supposed to be grand and opulent on TV but our wedding was portrayed beautifully on a smaller scale and I liked it. The show’s production house is known for big weddings in their shows but because of the storyline, we had everything simply yet tastefully done. I am glad that producer Rajan Shahi has given me this opportunity. Right from the jewelry to the red and white theme to the color-coordinated outfits in every function, I feel that we received a lot of love and affection.”

This is the third time Rupali has become a bride on TV. Earlier, she celebrated 25 years of marriage with her first husband Vanraj (Sudhanshu Pandey) in the show, and a few years ago she became a bride with her stint in Sanjivani. Talking about it, Rupali said, “Both the times, I became a bride for a brief while and it was not so elaborate as the #Maan wedding. Personally, I believe in small and simple weddings and my own wedding was a quick and simple one many years ago.”

Rupali also talked about her own marriage with Ashwin K Verma who is a corporate professional. She shared, “Ashwin and I had decided to get married just two days in advance and I had announced it to my parents. My brother (Bollywood choreographer Vijay (Ganguly) was taking a flight out of Mumbai and I had to ask him to stay back. We fixed a date and I was hoping that Ashwin would show up on time. We were planning to do a registered wedding at my home in Worli but then my father (film director Anil Ganguly) decided to do kanyadaan and we called a pandit. I had asked a designer friend to get a blue blouse with my red sari and we waited for the pandit who did not reach till late evening. Ashwin entered a ‘no entry’ lane and he was fined by the police. It was hilarious how finally Ashwin landed at my home and the pandit started chanting the mantras from the ground floor till he came to my flat. In total, I had around 99 people at my wedding. Ashwin came dressed in a shirt and jeans and then the kanyadan happened and we exchanged garlands. Our wedding was over in a few minutes. We threw a wedding after-party after we got married on the same day in Versova at an eater later for our friends. Ours was a fast, hilarious, and super quick wedding. I feel that instead of spending money on a big, fat wedding, you should rather share your happiness by helping the less privileged.”
