In a piece in Good Housekeeping, Anupama opened up about her motherhood, and how it was at times emotionally draining for her to be dealing with people and their opinions and she said, “Having a newborn is hard; it’s a long, 24-hour day. When the baby is fragile and has medical needs, it stretches out even more. Questions such as Did I do something to cause this? and Am I doing enough? creep up. These doubts make you judge yourself harshly and feel judged.”

Philantropy work: 

Anupama has donated an amount of 2 crore rupees to the women and farmers in Anantapur District, Andhra Pradesh to help the government with providing them with better amenities.  She also donated 2 crore ruppes to the Prime Minister’s relief fund during Covid-19.
