Addressing media persons after making her foray into politics official, the actor, flashing a wide smile, said, "Seeing the 'Mahayagya' of development (development push) around me (under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi), I felt that I should also be a part of it. I need your blessings and support as I embark on this new journey. Whatever I do, I always make it a point to do it right...to do it well. I wish to follow in the footsteps of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-ji and serve fellow citizens in whichever role I am entrusted with. I intend to work under the guidance of Amit Shah-ji and make all of my leaders and cadres proud of me."

Last month, Rupali said that the show 'Anupamaa' is a tribute to all the Gujaratis. Rupali with her character of a Gujarati woman in the show, has mesmerised the viewers with her accent and dialect.

"There is immense respect for them, so that respect I had to portray in my character as Anupamaa. 'Anupamaa' is a tribute to all the Gujaratis," she added.

The show is based on the Bengali series ‘Sreemoyee'. It also stars Sudhanshu Pandey as Vanraj, Madalsa Sharma, and Gaurav Khanna.
