Neena Gupta is one of the most loved actresses in Bollywood. She is among those actresses who have gained success and recognization in the later half of her career. The actress has been featured in various big bollywood films this year. She is always very vocal about her professional life.
In a recent interview, Neena reacted to her daughter, fashion designer Masaba Gupta's remark that she tried to become a matchmaker. In a new interview, Neena said that wanting to get Masaba Gupta married 'was just one of my maternal instincts' Neena said, "Everybody around says it’s rubbish in today’s time but I feel it’s still important. Also, I don’t think there is an alternate institution. Today, young girls are financially independent and thus won’t take anything from a man. This is why divorces are happening. Earlier they had no option but to silently suffer. But I also believe marriage is such a good institution in many ways. So I am really confused.”
Neena further added, “The only love that I have felt is for Masaba (her daughter). I don’t know, other people might have felt but mujhe nahi samajh aata. Everything is lust in the beginning and then it can take direction and you can get married or not married or you go with somebody else. It’s only with a child that I feel I can do anything.”
Neena’s daughter Masaba had spoken about Neena wanting to get her married when she was 25-26 years, “I didn’t meet boys then knowing how they would be so badly behaved. That’s when she got all stressed that I wouldn’t get married and just chill my whole life. Mom was like he comes from a good family, earns this much, would keep you happy, etc. She was in full Sima Taparia mode.” Masaba married businessman Madhu Mantena in 2015 but parted ways after four years. She is currently dating actor Satyadeep Mishra.
