On International Yoga Day, several Bollywood celebrities took to their Instagram handles to share the inspiring post. Kangana Ranaut also shared a short note and revealed how yoga has helped her sister, Rangoli Chandel to recover from the trauma of the acid attack. The actress mentioned that her sister was left with third-degree burns and loss of vision in one eye. Kangana said that Rangoli started recovery after she began practising yoga.
Kangana shared a picture of her Rangoli performing yoga. She wrote, “Rangoli has the most inspiring Yoga story, a roadside 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 further revealed that her fiance saw her and left and never returned, “yes no matter what happened she would not say a word just stare blankly at everything, 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,”

The actress said, “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,”
On the work front, Kangana Ranaut will be seen in her next release, ‘Thalaivi’, a film on the life of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.
