Rupali Ganguly, who plays the role of Anupamaa, shares an old and strong bond with Akshay Kumar. She had met him through her father and spoke about the days when she had first met the actor and how their bond has been renewed due to Ravivaar with Star Parivaar. She said, "Akshay is family to us. My father signed him on in his early days, and that's how we came to know him. When we met him we were pleasantly surprised, and I remember my father saying that this person is made for stardom. Akshay is so punctual, hard-working and such a down-to-earth person.”

She went on to add, “When we used to go outdoors for Papa's films, I remember Akshay used to wake up early in the morning at 4 am and workout. My father is very proud of him, and always fond of him. So, because of my father Akshay Kumar became very close to me, and I started tying 'Rakhi' to him. The friendship that had been lost for almost 30 years has now been rekindled due to Ravivaar with Star Parivaar." The actress also posted photos of her Rakhi celebrations with the actor on Instagram.
