Anupria Goenka best known for her roles in Padmaavat, Tiger Zinda Hai and WAR, has also been making a name for herself on the small screen with hit shows like Sacred Games and MX Player's Aashram. In Aashram, Anupria can be seen trying to expose a self-proclaimed Godman called Kashipur waale Baba Nirala played by Bobby Deol. In a recent interview with ET Times, she also shared about her run-in with a Godman in real life and made some shocking revelations.
Anupria also said that she has had good experience too with Godmen. Currently, the actress seeks guidance and counselling from an astrologer but is clear that she is not going to give the reins of her life to someone. "Whenever I am flustered or clueless, he is my go-to person. He gives me a sense of peace. It's almost like hearing the voice of God, it's a treasure to have someone like that. Having said that I need to be laying my faith in my hard work and my capabilities."
Anupria believes that if things don't work out, they are "either because of my shortcomings or not meant for me." She went on to share that her father was spiritually inclined and his blind faith in Godmen has left them in a bad situation.
Anupria Opens Up About Her Believe In Spirituality
Recalling the incident from when she was 18 years old Anupria explained, "My definition of spirituality is believing in the universe, believing in the existence of some external force that is above us, believing in good thoughts and doing things to help others. I like to believe there's God as it makes me feel better. But for my dad, spirituality was always finding babas and godmen, going completely berserk and dedicating one's self to a certain 'aastha'. He lost focus and it harmed the family as it incapacitated him to work and put all of us in a difficult spot."
Anupria Recalls Her Run In With A Spiritual Leader
She further shared her bitter experience with the spiritual leader saying, "My family trusted him very heavily. Even I had started to believe in him. He sounded reasonable and said just the right things, he sounded very practical. But he tried to take advantage of me. I was 18 then. That scarred me for a very, very long time. Thankfully, I did not let him take advantage. I was able to escape the situation. I knew I had to hear my instincts, though I had to fight them for a while. I had started to see signs and gauged from prior meetings that something was amiss. I kept doubting myself because I had believed in him for so long and didn't think it was possible."
Anupira Was Last Seen In Aashram Chpater 2
