Neena Gupta

Neena Gupta has to be one of the most daring among all celebrity single parents. In the 1980s, she decided to have a child out of wedlock. It could have been so easy for her to go on a “short trip” in true Bollywood style and get rid of the child.

Instead, she decided to have her child even when she was certain that there was no possibility of a marriage. In one of her recent interviews, she expressed her own surprise at taking this brave decision.

How did she cope?

After the initial objection to her choice, her father came to understand Neena’s unconventional life and became her rock. He lived with her and took responsibilities of the household and little Masaba when Neena was busy earning money.

She had to accept many acting jobs for money alone, which made her unhappy as an actress, but as a mother she regrets nothing. And her daughter, Masaba, loves nothing more than her relationship with her mom.

Where do they stand now?

Neena Gupta spent most of her youth bringing up Masaba. After her daughter grew up and became a trusted name in fashion, Neena Gupta was lucky enough to get an understanding partner. She is now happily married and just as close to her daughter.
