Kangana Ranaut shares the ‘inspiring Yoga story’ of her sister Rangoli Chandel on her Instagram handle. The actress also opened up about how yoga helped her family through the posts on this International Yoga Day. Her sister is an acid attack survivor who had to undergo 53 surgeries as half of her face was burnt and the actress opened up about how her sister’s mental health got affected when she stopped to speak.
Kangana wrote on the post as “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, yes 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 expressed that she was only 19 years old and did not knew Yoga could help her. She added that “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”.
