It was the Netflix series Masaba Masaba that made Neena Gupta realize the acting potential of her daughter Masaba Gupta. The senior actor said in his interviews that he had apologized for discouraging his daughter from acting.
However, many people do not know that Nina also tried to enlist the help of Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar to convince Masaba to withdraw her acting in the day. Masaba, who is a successful fashion designer, made her debut in acting with the web series last year and was very warmly received.
In an interview, Nina said that she advised Masaba to go abroad if she wanted to act. “I told him ‘if you want to be an actor you go abroad. Jis tarah tumhara shakal hai, body hai, tumhe yahan Indian milieu mein bahot kam Bhoomika milge (The way you look, the way your body is , You will get some roles in Indian milieu). You will never become a heroine, you will never become Hema Malini, you will never become Alia Bhatt. “
He also told journalist Rajeev Masand that he also tried to get the help of Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar in it. When asked if he met her on a flight, Nina replied, “Yes! So mean and cheap kind of people. They gave me their number and then did not join my call. “To this, Rajiv replied that it was” because you wanted him to convince Masaba to act. “
