Neena Gupta has not shied away from admitting some of the mistakes she made when it came to her daughter Masaba Gupta. The mother-daughter duo share the screen in the Netflix series Masaba Masaba, which marked Masaba’s first acting role. Initially hesitant about Masaba’s foray into acting, Neena seems to have done a 180. The actress now wishes that her daughter keeps getting more acting opportunities.

In conversation with TOI, Neena opened up about how she had tried to discourage Masaba from getting into acting. Masaba had been around people from the film industry throughout her life, and Neena feels that her daughter understood why she didn't want her to become an actor. Neena added that it was very difficult to be swayed by the glamour and fame in the industry, and she did not want that for Masaba.

When the makers of Masaba Masaba approached them for the show, Neena had her reservations, even though she loved the show’s concept. She was worried about how Masaba would be able to pull off such a difficult role, but the former was in for a surprise. Neena had been ‘wowed’ by Masaba’s acting and said she immediately apologised to her daughter for trying to stop her from becoming an actress.

Neena said that now, she wished Masaba would get more acting opportunities. But at the same time, she was well aware that her daughter had a thriving career as a fashion designer as well. Neena says that she was waiting to see where luck takes her daughter, and that she was proud of everything Masaba has done. She admits that she is guilty of criticising Masaba throughout her life. Neena now proudly admits that she had been wrong about her daughter. “I have always criticised her all her life, but now I must say that she is very good”, Neena said.

The first two seasons of Masaba Masaba can be streamed on Netflix.
