Masaba Masaba seemed to blur the lines between fact and fiction with the fascinating way the series showcased Masaba Gupta’s life on the silver screen. The series saw Masaba and her mother Neena Gupta portray fictionalised versions of themselves, and followed the two women as they navigated their professional and personal lives. At the recently held OTTplay Awards and Conclave 2022, the series won Masaba the award for Excellence in Reality Fiction.

The award was presented by Mohit Jain and Kamal Jain. “Its heavy”, Masaba remarked as she accepted the award, and hilariously added “What’s the point of doing all those weights”, when Gauahar Khan offered to hold the trophy for her.

“Thank you so much HT. Wow, I don't know what to say. I’m glad to get the award for acting because I’m in the most uncomfortable dress of the night, so my designing career is over”, said Masaba, who also has a prominent career as a fashion designer, that part of her life being explored by the series as well.

Masaba went on “It's so nice that a show like Masaba Masaba can co-exist in the world of Family Man, which I love. A show like Delhi Crime, and you name it. I think we have so many shows today. We’re (Masaba Masaba) a light hearted, fun watch, and I think we’ve touched a few people and that’s all that matters. Thank you so much and I am very very happy to be here”.

In addition to Masaba and Neena, Masaba Masaba also features Neil Bhoopalam, Ram Kapoor, Kusha Kapila, and Barkha Singh in pivotal roles. The second season of the series aired recently. Part of the review for the second season on OTTplay reads “We have to give it to Masaba for just showing immense improvement, and it will not come as a surprise after seeing her play the beautiful and raw Saiba in Modern Love: Mumbai segment I Love Thane”.

The first two seasons of Masaba Masaba are available for streaming on Netflix.
