In the show, Rupali’s character is seen as a devoted mother and daughter-in-law who is often looked down upon for not completing her education. Rupali has said that she didn't feel very confident about returning to the screen after a gap of seven years. She also felt she was overweight for the role. Rupali has been earning a lot of praise for her performance in the show which has been declared a success for its high TRPs. Rupali however, wasn't sure of playing Anupamaa as she felt that she may not look good on screen.
During an interview with ETimes, the actress said, “When I joined Anupamaa, I was a little plump and I told our producer Rajan Shahi that you want a heroine and at this age, let me lose some weight. But the producer told me that he didn't want a heroine but a mother instead. ‘I want a mother and you are perfect for the role because mothers are like this. Mother’s don’t get time to hit the gym and have a perfect figure and have a flat stomach. Maa maa hoti hai, she will first think about her kids, family, house and later maybe she will think about herself if she gets time’."
