Neena: The rule breaker
Neena Gupta has become one of the most celebrated actors of our time. The actor made her comeback with Badhai Ho, a 2018 movie after being away from the limelight for many years. She is very popular among cinephiles and the Indian youth due to her chilled-out attitude and the ability to speak her mind. The Badhai Ho actress is a natural rule breaker and here is proof…
Her fashion sense
Neena is an avid user of social media and regularly posts pictures from her life on her Instagram page. The actress is always seen in a free-spirited style which for some is inappropriate for her age. She has been criticized and trolled for the same but the actress has expressed her intentions to live her life on her own terms and how little she cares about these trolls. That speaks directly to the youth of today.
Neena Gupta has never been scared of playing unconventional roles. She has believed in breaking the stereotypes that society sets in for girls and tries to portray the same emotions through her characters also. She made an impression with her acting talent in films like Mandi (1983), Rihaee (1988), Drishti (1990), and Suraj ka Satvan Ghoda (1990). Her breakthrough came with Woh Chokri, where she played the role of a widowed daughter-in-law. Neena even won a National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Child out of wedlock
Neena has always pursued her goals independently and has never shied away from taking risks. When infidelity was frowned upon, Neena made the decision to raise Masaba Gupta with cricketer Vivian Richard, giving rise to the woman she is today. People like and appreciate Neena since she managed to thrive in the film industry in spite of society's expectations, judgments, and criticisms.
Ahead of her time
Neena at a time when women were not even allowed to work independently, became an actress and also tried her hands at direction and production. She has directed successful TV series such as Saans (1999), Siski (2000), and Kyun Hota Hai Pyar. In addition, she produced the Hindi play Soorya Ki Antim Kiran Se Soorya Ki Paheli Kiran Tak and co-founded Sahaj Productions with actor Rajendra Gupta.
In 2017, Neena Gupta shared an Instagram post stating that she is looking for good parts to play in Bollywood. What followed was a line of offers that Neena looked into and landed the main role in the 2018 released film Badhai Ho. What has followed since then is the retrieval of her Bolyood career and Neena has been featured in popular web series Panchayat (both seasons now) and Masaba Masaba, playing herself in the semi-fictional series based on the life of her daughter, Masaba.
Neena Gupta said in an interview that she was married at a very young age where she did not understand much and the marriage resulted in a divorce. She afterwards gave birth to Masaba and came to Mumbai while raising her child. The actress raised Masaba as a single mother for the longest time. She later got married to Delhi’s chartered accountant Vivek Mehra in 2008 and the couple has been together ever since.
