If I could go back in time, I wouldn't have a child outside marriage: Actress Neena Gupta


NEW DELHI: Actress Neena Gupta, in an interview to a new paper, was asked to talk about the one decision from her past that she would like to reconsider. Without any hesitation, she replied: "I would not have a child outside marriage."

Neena Gupta's daughter Masaba Gupta, who is now a well-known designer, was born to her when she was in a relationship with former West Indies cricketer Vivian Richards in the eighties. Vivian Richards later married Miriam while Neena Gupta got married to chartered accountant Vivek Mehra.

"Every child needs both parents. I was always honest with Masaba, so it did not affect our relationship, but I know she suffered,” said Neena Gupta.

Masaba Gupta married filmmaker Madhu Mantena in 2015. However, they made public their separation in 2018 and filed for divorce last year.

Masaba Gupta was 19 when Neena Gupta married Vivek Mehra in 2008. In 2017, Masaba shut down trolls, who referred to her as "illegitimate West Indian" for supporting cracker ban.

Neena Gupta,60, won rave reviews for playing the role of a middle-aged housewife dealing with an unexpected pregnancy in Badhaai Ho. Her next film is Panga, in which she will be seen doing the role of the mother of a former Kabaddi champion, played by Kangana Ranaut.

Sweet but could bite.👨‍👧 🤷🏽‍♀️
