25th June 2023, Mumbai: In the film and television industries, sisters and performers Ratna Pathak Shah, 66, and Supriya Pathak, 62, are two of the most adored older actors. In a recent interview, the two discussed how Supriya was bullied by Ratna when they were kids. However, they were able to determine that Ratna never struck Supriya and instead made her cry by using emotional blackmail.
Daughters of the late, iconic actor Dina Pathak are Ratna and Supriya. Supriya is wed to actor Pankaj Kapur, while Ratna is wed to actor Naseeruddin Shah.
They related a tale from their youth in an interview. Ratna responded with laughter when Twinkle questioned her about bullying Supriya, who is four years older than her: “Of course, what are big sisters for? What purpose do younger sisters serve? They are to be bullied.”
Supriya acknowledged that she was an extremely irritable youngster who frequently cried. She further asserted that she never used glycerin to cry on TV. Supriya began by describing how she was bullied, “She never hit me but she used to,” and Ratna finished her thought by adding, “I used emotional blackmail like any good girl would.”
“There was a window and mum and dad’s room,” Supriya continued. “There was an AC when the window opened. She would go and put one leg over the other side and threaten to jump off if you didn’t do this even though she knew she wouldn’t fall. She was aware of the (AC duct) that prevented her from falling, but I was unaware that nothing could harm her.” That is what acting is about, according to Ratna.
Ratna appeared in the web series Happy Family: Conditions Apply this year. She appeared in Kutch Express, her first Gujarati movie. Last year, Supriya appeared in the web series Home Shanti. In her new role, she will be referred to as Kartik Aaryan’s mother in the upcoming film Satyaprem Ki Katha. It will release on June 29.
