Rupali Ganguly’s First Paycheque
As the two were enjoying the amazing food and talking about Rupali Ganguly’s early acting days, our Editor-in-Chief Kamiya popped a question. She asked her whether or not she remembered her very first pay check. Pat came Rupali’s reply, “Bhot achi tarah se” (very vividly). She said that she used to receive $3,000 per day for a serial.
It was for Sukanya, which was a television serial back in the year 2000. “It was a very big deal for me,” said Rupali. She expressed how huge this payment per day was for her. Before she signed Sukanya, she had also signed another serial, which was Dil Hai Ki Manta Nai with producer Rajan Sahi.
Worked As A Waitress
Rupali Ganguly actually worked as a waitress before walking into the television industry. She recalled the time when her family faced financial issues. Rupali never shied away from working as a waitress or even a salesgirl at a boutique.
Rupali and Kamiya enjoyed a delicious spread of Bengali delicacies and indulged in some fun conversations as well. They also visited an ice cream parlour to satiate their dessert cravings after savouring yummy dishes.
