Anupamaa, starring Rupali Ganguly as the titular character, is one of the most loved shows on Indian television currently.

This Sony Entertainment show makes a regular appearance in the top shows on the TRP charts due to its amazing performances, gripping storyline and twist-and-turns.

But did you know there was a list the makers went through before Rupali was brought on board?

Mona was the first actor who the makers of Anupamaa approached to play the titular role. But, due to unknown reasons, she rejected the offer.

Sakshi was even approached for the role of Anupamaa, but she declined the offer. The reason behind this is said to be the web series and Bollywood projects coming her way.

Shweta was approached to play the lead in this daily soap but rejected it in favour of the Colors’ reality show, for which she was in Cape Town recently.

Gauri even gave a screen test for the role as the makers then thought she was apt for it. However, things did not work out as they didn’t find her personality in allegiance with the role.

The makers of Anupamaa approached Juhi to play the titular role, but she turned down the offer in favour of another daily soap.

As per reports, the makers found her to be the perfect choice to play the role now essayed by Rupali Ganguly but didn’t bring her on board due to her high fee demands.
