Rangoli sustained third-degree burns. Her face and upper body were badly damaged.
Rangoli underwent a long treatment comprising of 53 surgeries. Damage to her upper body, face, and ears was restored. Rangoli’s mental health remained a matter of concern as she had stopped talking altogether.
Kangana wrote, “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,” Kangana remembered. She said that “I desperately wanted her to talk to me, so I took her everywhere with me even to my Yoga classes. She started practicing Yoga and I saw a 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.”
Kangana has also spoken about how the yoga journey benefitted each of her family members. She shared the therapeutic effect of Yoga on her parents, brother Aksht and sister-in-law Ritu.
