Actress Neena Gupta is an inspiration for every liberal woman in this world. She is known for making bold choices, not only in professional but in personal life as well.
From being a single mom in real life to playing strong characters like Priya Kapoor in popular television show Saans to a role of a middle-aged pregnant mother in ‘Badhai Ho‘, Neena Gupta has shown what a brave soul she is.
She is a brilliant actress but her life journey has been full of ups and downs, twists and turns.
Neena was way ahead of her times when she took the bold decision to go ahead with her pregnancy with one of the world’s finest cricketers, Vivian Richards, without getting married.
Though many of us admire Neena Gupta for being strong and independent, many of us don’t know what she went through to be a fighter we know today.
In one of her recent interviews with a news portal, Neena Gupta opened up about the unheard story of her life, which shows how she endured tough situations.
Known for making unconventional choices, the 60-year-old actor could not contain herself when she was addressed as a ‘strong woman’. In an era, where many women would love to be perceived as strong women, Neena shares why she doesn’t believe in the tag.
While media celebrates her as a strong woman, Neena shares how deep inside she has been vulnerable like many of us. From being ill-treated by partners to being wounded in a relationship, Neena spoke about her struggles that many of us struggle with.
As per the report, Neena spoke about the times when she was ill-treated by her past partners. She also revealed how she was cheated on by one of her boyfriends. She then disclosed how her boyfriend tortured and abused her.
Neena Gupta stated that she had problems just like any other woman, but the difference was that she kept moving on. She did not get into drugs or alcohol and never married.
She also gave an example of how she was hurt in a past relationship. She was once in love with a man who was going to marry another woman. She added that the man loved her as well, and promised her that he would marry her if the other girl’s family refused him.
In the end, Neena requested the other women to not be foolish like her.
The Bottom Line:
What makes Neena Gupta’s story such a special one is her ability to own up her mistakes and have the courage to move on.
At IFORHER, we hope Neena’s struggle will inspire many to fight their life challenges and create a life of their dreams.
