While many of us are still to catch the the second installment of Aashiqui, the release of Aashiqui 2 has made many of us look back at the original film, which released in 1990 and went onto become one of the most watched romantic films ever. Though the lead actor of the first part, Rahul Roy was went onto become the winner of the season one of much celebrated reality show, Bigg Boss, his lady love in his debut flick- Anu Aggarwal continues to remain elusive. And, in our attempt of finding her whereabouts, we came across an interview Anu gave to a leading daily in 2012. Here's are a few excerpts from the same.
Anu, who met with a near fatal accident in Mumbai in 1999, says her life became blank post the accident. "I don’t remember what happened in 1999 actually. I have developed a complete block on what actually happened. I don’t have a memory. I’m sure it’s there somewhere, resting in some latent part of my brain. I was driving a car... and I crashed it. I had each and every limb, bone and joint broken in my body. I don’t know whether there was someone else in the car, but I believe there was. I have to go by hearsay, which is not something I particularly want to believe. Beyond that everything is a blank," said Anu.

As per Anu, her life started the day she woke up from the coma. "I was comatose for 29 days. My life started from the day I woke up half paralysed, which is when I didn’t even know what the meaning of paralysis was. I existed outside my body. I had many, so called, spiritually amazing experiences throughout that time. And I saw the other side, where death is finality and mortality, normal... where the death angel rules," added Anu.
Anu cat walked around the hospital half paralysed. "It began with a doctor at the Breach Candy hospital, who was looking after me in the ICU. He saw the condition I was in. He said nine out of ten people who came to that hospital like that, didn’t make it through. After three years, these same doctors saw me trying to catwalk around Breach Candy hospital when my face was entirely paralysed and twisted to one side. All the doctors would just stare at me in wonderment over how I was trying to walk even when my feet were not moving, said Anu.
She ended up forgetting everything, even her name. "I didn’t know the meaning of words and languages when I woke up... I didn’t know English; though it came to me faster than Hindi did. I had lost everything. It was like landing up on another planet altogether. I had no knowledge of history, geography or culture. I remembered nothing; there was complete loss of memory. I didn’t know Anu Aggarwal. I’m not Anu Aggarwal. What does she look like?," claimed the dusky beauty.
Anu has taken up Yoga and stays in Bihar, much away from all the fame and glamour. "I disappeared from Bollywood much before the accident. Then I decided to say no to all publications, interviews and everything that came with it. I’m not here! I do not exist. That was in 1993. In 1994, I completed all the films I had. In 1995 I started my travel overseas, and then I disappeared. In 1997, I went into Yoga. I liked that life, that discipline and that anonymity. Which really means no ambition, no greed, no dishonesty and no hate," said Anu.
Anu's now writing her own book. Speaking about the same, the former actress said, "My book is biographical. I wouldn’t say it’s a biographical essay. It’s basically this life of mine, which began in 1999. So it could have certain memories from my childhood, a certain time of me as a film star, boyfriends, drugs and rock and roll…. It has glimpses. It’s really just a story. I am not bitter. Life was wonderful. But other things that were not so wonderful happened... stalkers. It wasn’t showbiz, it was stardom. ‘Excessive fame and the mother f****r’ is a chapter in my book," concluded Anu.
