Rupali further continued, “I doubt he had any hopes from me so after a disinterested look on his face for my first scene, to probably thinking I could have potential and giving me another scene to variate and then another and another…auditioned for about 9 scenes till he was convinced to cast me. He was an obsessed first time director and I was a clueless brat who didn’t understand that acting is a serious business!For all the trouble I gave him- I was convinced he hated me till he invited me for his first bash as a producer …we lost touch and then my sabbatical happened and Rajanji kept going from strength to strengthSocha bhi nahi tha ki itni jaldi I will restart my tv ka safar … and that too with my first director!”
