Neena Gupta is one of the finest actoress in Bollywood. Her performance in Badhai Ho got praised by the critics as well as the audience. In a recent interview with Rajeev Masand, Neena Gupta made a number of revelations, including elaborating the time when her daughter and ace designer Masaba Gupta wanted to become an actress.
Incidentally, Neena had met Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar on a plane around that time and had asked the two to convince her daughter to let go of her aspirations to become an actress. And while they had promised her that they would help her out, when she did call them, neither of them took her call. On this Neena Gupta jocked, “Yeah so mean, cheap kinda of people they are. She further added, “They gave me there number and phir phone he nahi uthate the (didn’t take my calls).”
However, she was pleasantly surprised when Rajeev told her than one of them had told Rajeev about her request to convince Masaba not to become and actor.
Neena further reveald that “I told her if you want to be an actor then you go abroad. Because tumhara jis tarah ka shakal hai aur body hai, tumhe yahan Indian mileu mein bohot kum role milenge, even if you become a good actor. So, tumko woh heroine nahi milegi. Hema Malini nahi banoge, Alia (Bhatt) nahi banogi.”
