On the occasion of International Yoga Day, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who often hits the headlines for one or the other controversy, has shared the inspiring story of her sister Rangoli Chandel, who survived an acid attack.

Kangana Ranaut said that Rangoli recovered mentally and physically after she started practicing Yoga.She went on to say that, in a span of two to three years, Rangoli underwent 53 surgeries. She was engaged to an Air officer. After the incident, he left Rangoli, she said.
"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 wasnâ€™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 said in Instagram post.
