Looking at her powerful act, the actress is currently among the top telly stars and as per the latest reports she has now become the highest-paid actress on Indian television.
In the daily soap, the Sanjivani fame plays the role of a housewife who gets betrayed by her own husband Vanraj, due to his love affair with his office colleague, Kavya.

Before Anupamaa, Rupali Ganguly rose to fame after playing the role of Monisha in Sarabhai vs Sarabhai. However, the Star Plus show helped her reach greater heights as almost every household knows about her acting prowess. Now that, Ganguly has become a prominent name, the latest report by Bollywood Life claims that she is also the highest-paid actress on Indian television.
Yes! You read that right. A source close to the development told the entertainment portal, “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.”
