On the occasion of International Yoga Day, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut posted her sister, Rangoli Chandel’s emotional journey and how Yoga benefited her to recover after acid attack.
Kangana wrote on Instagram, “Rangoli has the most inspiring Yoga story, a road side Romeo threw acid on Rangoli when she was hardly 21, with third degree burns, half of her face burnt, one eye lost its vision, one ear melted away and a breast severely damaged, she had to go through 53 surgeries in 2-3 years but that wasn’t all, my biggest concern was her mental health as she had stopped to speak.”
She added, “No matter what happened she would not say a word just stare blankly at every thing, she was engaged to an Air Force officer and when he saw her face after the acid attack he left and never returned, even then she did not shed a tear neither she uttered a word, doctors told me she is in a state of shock, they gave her therapies and put her on medication for psychiatric help but nothing helped.”
Kangana revealed that she was 19 at that time and didn’t know how to help her sister. “I desperately wanted her to talk to me, so I took her every where with me even to my Yoga classes. She started practising Yoga and I saw dramatic transformation in her. Not only she started to respond to her pain and my lame jokes but also regained her lost vision in one eye.”
Yesterday, June 20, the actress also shared that a doctor once recommended her mother an open heart surgery, but she had decided against it and instead, she tried curing her mother with Yoga
