Bollywood actress Anu Aggarwal recently revealed that she was in a live-in relationship with a person and his mother had also accepted her. She opened up about being ahead of time in her younger days and how it ‘destroyed’ her personal life.
In an interview with Indian Express, the Aashiqui actress said, “I was in a live-in and it was considered unacceptable. His mother lived with us too, and she was very open, she accepted me. But then her friends started saying, ‘Anu is this and Anu is that…’, things were written about me in the press and magazines and people believed it.”
“I didn’t have any means to protect myself, there was no social media at the time, I didn’t have a voice. It destroyed my personal life but if we talk about my working life, it boomed with the personality that I have,” she added.
Anu’s Bollywood debut
Anu became an overnight sensation after her debut Bollywood film Aashiqui went on to become a blockbuster in 1990. She did a few more films like Ghazab Tamasha, Janam Kundli, King Uncle, Return of Jewel Thief, but then stepped away from films. She was also a supermodel back then.
However, an accident in 1999 left her in a coma for almost a month, changing her life completely. She moved away from showbiz to focus on her recovery. She lived in an ashram and renounced the world. The actress returned to urban life in 2006. Today, she runs the Anu Aggarwal Foundation and advocates yoga.
