Annu Aggarwal says her car accident made her seek the positive side of life
Annu Aggarwal is an example of what we call an overnight success in showbiz. Her debut with Aashiqui in the ’90s made her the next big thing in Bollywood. However the actress soon left the industry and went away from the archlights and adapted a yogic lifestyle. She had a tragic car accident, which didn’t dampen her spirits but rather made her see the positive side of it and brought many changes in her life that makes her happy even today. In an exclusive interview with ET Times, the actress says it like it is.
When asked why she quit Bollywood, Annu Aggarwal said that in 1993 she had stopped signing films. She adds that she had a mind of doing the right things. “Most of the time, I don’t rely on my mind; I think from my heart, so, I had stopped signing films and instead rejected the offers that came my way. When I got nominated for ‘Khalnayika’ in 1993 the headline of a newspaper article read, ‘Anu makes it on her own terms’. It was also around this time that I had done my last cover story with a magazine, which highlighted the fact that I love women and my first love is a woman–my mother,” she added.
Annu Aggarwal further adds that she always wanted something more and it was about doing something outside the showbiz world. Sharing her experience how people reacted when she shared her thoughts, she said, “Nobody believed me when I told them about my decision; they wondered if I had gone mad so much so as to suggest quitting as I had got on a platter something that people only dream of. Cannes was a wonderful experience and that’s when I thought that I should expand a little more and evolve. It might sound funny but that is what I am; I always thought of evolving. Many people opposed me but I took a break.”
Speaking about the tragic car accident she faced, she says that she was shocked by the car accident, “I saw people around me crying in despair. But now, over time, I feel that the accident was a blessing. I think out of the chaos and adversities, beauty arises, and you understand what positivity is. So when there is negativity, you understand positivity. This is the opposite law of nature. So, all in all, it was great; the blessing of the accident cured a lot of stuff in my life.”
Finding positivity in all times of life is indeed the most difficult thing to do. But guess, once you believe in it, nothing is impossible.
