Life’s Plans for Anu
Never the one to be interested in Hindi movies she was surprised when Mr. Mahesh Bhatt offered to cast her in a film. She was just not interested but Mr. Bhatt vowed not to make the film without her, and that’s how Aashiqui happened in 1990. Till date, the industry states that it was a pivotal movie that brought back the melody and gave Anu Agarwal to the industry.
She had no long-term plans but after the iconic taking-shelter-under-her-lover’s-jacket stint, she was flooded with offers and went on to do a film in various languages like Hindi, Assamese & Tamil. From 1990 to 1996 she worked in movies like Ghazab Tamasha, Khalnayika, Thiruda Thiruda, King Uncle, Janam Kundli, Kanyadaan and Return of Jewel Thief.
She loved her freedom too much, chose not to be a public spectacle and consciously disappeared from the arc-lights so that she could travel, see the world, do some social work and learn yoga.
Accident & Re-birth
Anu was in a major car accident in 1999 that left her in a comatose state for a month with 29 broken bones, severe amnesia and paralysis. It took her a lot of will-power, multiple surgeries, a long hospital stay and various spiritual experiences to get back to being who she is today.
A New Lease of Life
She claims to be as old as the girl who was born again after coming out of the coma. From a girl who had a string of boyfriends in her youth, she’s happy being single. She is a devout yoga practitioner and lives a minimalistic and full-of-solitude life teaching yoga in a yoga school in Bihar.
It’s difficult to see two different people stay in one body, but not impossible, as Anu Aggarwal has shown us.
