[But once the cameras rolled], I did not interfere in any scene.”
Masaba Gupta wanted to act
In a recent interview, Masaba has in fact revealed that she wanted to be an actress but her mother did not support her. She said, “I wanted to act since I was 14, but I was dissuaded by my mother for various reasons. She told me I would be stereotyped. Back then, I wanted to be an actor for the sake of vanity. I wanted to have people fussing over me in the make-up van.”

The review for Masaba Masaba by Hindustan Times states, “Its confident command over tone is one of its biggest strengths — it is neither too frivolous, nor is it overwhelmingly sombre. Woven into the fabric of the show, a semi-autobiographical account of fashion designer Masaba Gupta’s life, is real, relatable drama.”
Neena has told Hindustan Times about her upcoming projects. She said, “I have Nikkhil Advani’s film with Rakul Preet Singh and Arjun Kapoor. That is a very nice and challenging role that I have almost completed work on. I also shot a short film directed by Tahira for Guneet Monga Productions. Suna hai shayad Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar bhi release ho jaegi.”
