Actress Neena Gupta is enjoying her new innings at acting, in films as well as the OTT space. Currently shooting for Satish Kaushik’s Kaagaz 2, Gupta is very content when it comes to work. However, she thinks that her daughter Masaba should take up more acting offers as she has a terrific potential.
While Neena thinks this way now, there was a time when she herself discouraged Masaba from taking up acting. And the Utsav (1981) actress regrets doing so. “All her life Masaba has been around people from the film industry. There is so much glamour and fame in this world that everyone wants to become an actor. She understood why I was discouraging her from becoming an actor,” she reasons.
Neena further adds: “When producer, Ashvini Yardi came up with the idea of making an OTT show on her life, I was amazed by the concept and worried at the same time, as it was a difficult role. But I was in for a surprise… She was so confident. When I saw the rushes, I was wowed by her performance. I apologised to her for stopping her from acting.”
“While I would like Masaba to act more, she is clear that she also has a fashion business that she is passionate about. So, let’s see where her luck takes her and what is written in her destiny. I am very proud of her and I wish that she gets more work as an actor. I have always criticised her all her life, but now I must say that she is very good,” the veteran actress concluded.
