It's been just two days since Masaba Masaba Season 2 dropped on Netflix. People can't stop raving about the show and are enjoying the current season to the fullest. The series marks the third outing of Masaba Gupta, who is a successful fashion designer as well as an actor. She plays herself in this semi-fictional show and has been lauded for her performance very well. During an interaction with OTTplay, Masaba was asked about the acting offers coming her way.

She told us, "I really want to play a cop. I haven't been offered that yet. Or like somebody who's from a small town or something, because I feel like people only think of me as a glamorous person. But I think the stuff that's coming my way, honestly, is not something I love. It's very much like a sidekick to some giant star or whatever."

Speaking about being a successful entrepreneur and how that gets her the best acting work, Masaba stated, "See, the thing is, I'm a very busy person, thank God in my business life. So I don't think about it that much, and I think that's why I probably get the best work. When Modern Love came my way, I was like, is there going to be somebody who likes this and will people enjoy the story? But clearly they did. So you take chances, and I am not doing this to run my house. Fortunately, I can take a lot more chances, but I would certainly hope that a lot better offers come my way."

In addition, Masaba Masaba also features Neena Gupta reprising her role as herself in the second season. The sophomore season also features Neil Bhoopalam, Armaan Khera, Rytasha Rathore, Kusha Kapila, Barkha Singh, and others in pivotal roles.

Moreover, it also marks the final outing of the late, legendary singer Bappi Lahiri onscreen.
