“I'll never have the guts to have a baby out of wedlock”, says Masaba Gupta

When it comes to curating an awe-inspiring fashion ensemble, Masaba Gupta is a pro. Her creations are unique, and impeccable and have helped her carve a niche among the milieu of designers.


And while people were going gaga over her outfits, she surprised everyone by venturing into acting with the Netflix web show Masaba Masaba (2020).

Looking forward to her second web series Modern Love Mumbai which streams on Amazon Prime from May 13, Masaba is excitedly looking forward to the reaction of viewers.

The show is an anthology in which she stars opposite Rithvik Bhowmick in one of the stories titled I Love Thane, helmed by Dhruv Sehgal. Besides, the show will also feature five other stories which feature actors like Chitrangada Singh, Arshad Warsi, Fatima Sana Sheikh, and veteran actresses Sarika and Tanuja.

Speaking about the show, Masaba says, “I did start to enjoy acting but honestly didn’t think something like this would come about. The film is about me and everyone I am interacting with. I think I just tasted blood on the set of Masaba Masaba. Acting is exciting, different, and quite cool. I enjoy it way too much, actually as much as I love running my business.”

In Modern Love Mumbai, Masaba's character Saiba is a modern young woman on the lookout for her ideal man. Asked about her take on modernity and the misconceptions associated with it, the designer turned actress says modern is all about being oneself and breaking the jaded barriers.

"When my mother (actress Neena Gupta) made Saans, it was called modern, and ahead of time. I have been tagged too modern for being born out of wedlock. Honestly, it’s wonderful to be modern but there’s no size that fits everyone. I think the responsibility of being modern is to be accepting, however, we have become more intolerant. I think we are going back in time," says Masaba.

However, she feels that we have regressed as a society and that a child born out of wedlock would be treated very differently today. "People would pass comments like that she slept with someone and had a baby. I read stories of so many single moms who have had kids out of wedlock. They do have to deal with whispers and people talking behind their backs. Nothing has changed with time. Being a modern woman, do I have the guts to have a baby out of wedlock? Never. I don’t want to take that extra pressure, and put a child in that space,” she concludes.
