Actress Neena Gupta has been vocal about her struggles as a single mom to daughter and renowned fashion designer Masaba Gupta.
Neena was dating former West Indian cricketer Vivian Richards in the 1980s, with whom she got pregnant and has a daughter, Masaba Gupta. Neena never married Richards and chose to raise Masaba as a single mother, and moved the family from New Delhi to Mumbai.
The 62 year old actress has shared the chronicles of her personal life in her autobiography ‘Sach Kahun Toh’. According to a review of the book published in Film Companion, actor Satish Kaushik had offered to marry Neena Gupta when she got pregnant out of wedlock.
When Neena was pregnant with Masaba, her dear friend and actor Satish Kaushik told her:
“Don’t worry, if the child is born with dark skin, you can just say it’s mine and we’ll get married. Nobody will suspect a thing.”
Earlier, Neena had opened up about her struggles as a single mother, and talked about a woman’s plight when she falls in love with a married man, and they refuse to separate from their wives.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Neena Gupta was last seen in Sardar Ka Grandson, co-starring Arjun Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh.
