Neena Gupta shares how she regrets having her daughter Masaba with Vivian Richards without getting married and how it made her and Masaba’s life difficult and tough. Neena Gupta’s daughter Masaba is a successful fashion designer, businesswoman, actress, and much more. But, still Neena Gupta has regrets about raising her child out of wedlock. Read more to know why.
Actress Neena Gupta is an inspiration for every liberal woman in this world. She is known for making bold choices, not only in her professional but in her personal life as well. From being a single mom in real life to playing strong characters like Priya Kapoor in the popular television show Saans to a role of a middle-aged pregnant mother in ‘Badhai Ho‘, this maverick soul shows her strong belief in taking bold decisions. She is a brilliant actress but her journey has been full of ups and downs, twists and turns.
Neena was way ahead of her time 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. Neena Gupta’s daughter Masaba is a successful fashion designer, an actress, and much more.
Though Neena Gupta did a great job at raising her daughter Masaba, she recently opened up that she might suggest people not to do what she did, or else you will be unfair towards the child.
She has also shared earlier, how she always felt guilty for raising her daughter in a non-conventional family. She said,
“I feel it was a very selfish act on my part. Some of my friends told me it won’t be fair on part of the child, but kaun sunnta hai uss waqat, blind hotey hain. I also feel sad because she was lonely. I wish I had another child but circumstances weren’t like that.”
Though many argue that time has changed and our society has changed its regressive mindset towards a child out of wedlock, Neena feels it is still a struggle. While sharing how society is still regressive, she shares:
“Yes, very hard. Nothing much has changed. You and I are the minority in this country. The majority is the same. What has changed? This also people should not do what I did. It is very tough and it is not fair on the child.”
In a society, where people still suffer from the deadly and heartbreaking thinking of ‘Log Kya Kahengey’, it is never easy for a single mother to raise her kids.
