Most of us still remember the famous Bollywood movie, Aashiqui. The actor was Rahul Roy who rocked the silverscreen with his amazing acting and chubby looks. Today Rahul Roy is not there in the limelight. But we remember him. Against him was an actress who had throbbed million hearts in the country. She also failed to maintain her magic due to an unsuccessful acting career. But we do not even remember her any more. Nor do we care to remember. But ‘Anusual’ is a story of that forgotten girl who stormed the silver screen but disappeared soon after. Where did she remain all these years? What did she do? Did anything happen to her? Is she well? Married? Happy? We have millions of questions if we start talking about her.
But these questions will be answered by none other than the same girl – Anu AggarwaL – in her memoir which has just been launched and is doing rounds. While we all are excited to know about her life post the Aashiqui, we want to know what really happens to people who immediately rise to fame and then go missing. But her life is no less than a fiction where things happen constantly. It’s like rags-to-riches and riches-to-rags story.
The brief synopsis of the book reads:
Anusual is the story of Anu Aggarwal, the dusky Delhi girl who went to Bombay and became an international model, and then a star with her very first Bollywood movie, Aashiqui, only to chuck it all up and join a yogashram.Coming back to Bombay, she was involved in a horrifying car crash that put her in a coma for twenty-nine days. Miraculously, the girl who broke into a million pieces recovered, and put the pieces of her life back together, first taking sanyas and then returning to Bombay to teach yoga. This fascinating story of a woman’s self-discovery, a near-death experience and amazing recovery is told in a straight-from-theheart, unbuttoned style, including details of the men in her life, from millionaire jet-setters to superyogis. In the end, as she says, love is all there is.
