Anupamaa is on a roll. The TRPs of the show are close to 4. Of course, a large chunk of the credit goes to the creators and actors. Actress Rupali Ganguly is riding the wave of popularity with the show. In the past, she has done shows like Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai where people adored the character of Monisha Sarabhai. But Anupamaa extended her reach to millions of households in India's small towns and villages. The show has also proved to be lucrative for her. Rupali Ganguly has beaten some of TV's veterans with the pay package she is commanding for the show.
A source told us, "Rupali Ganguly started off with a fee of Rs 1.5 lakh per day. It was in the high bracket but then she is a senior actress. Now, she is commanding Rs three lakh per day. She is now the highest paid actress on Indian TV. Rupali Ganguly has beaten many popular younger names in the business." Forget actresses, it is even higher than the likes of Ram Kapoor and Ronit Bose Roy. It seems she hiked her fee some months back. It is justifiable given the kind of performances she is giving in every episode of the show.
Produced by Rajan Shahi's Director's Kut Productions, Anupamaa is the tale of a housewife whose life is in shambles after she discovers her husband's extra-marital affair. Subjected to casual disrespect by her kids, Anupamaa finally decides to work for her own happiness and empowerment. As of now, fans are enjoying the brilliant chemistry of MaAn, which is Anuj Kapadia (Gaurav Khanna) and her. Gaurav Khanna is commanding Rs 1. 5 lakh per day, which is also high. Even Sudhanshu Pandey gets the same amount. The makers have roped in Aneri Vajani who is another strong performer.
