Veteran Actor Neena Gupta To Make A Comeback In Bollywood
Posted On 13th September, 2017 @ 19:06 pm by Mihika Jindal



If you had just one television at home and no option but to tune-in to whatever your mother was watching, you’ll know who Neena Gupta is, a veteran TV actress famed for serials like Saans and Buniyaad. If that doesn’t ring a bell, this National Award winner was also seen playing some substantial roles in films such as Khalnayak and Gandhi.




Neena Gupta, a few months ago, posted a photo on Instagram asking for some work. The caption read: “I live in Mumbai and working am a good actor looking fr good parts to play.”



I live in mubai and working am a good actor looking fr good parts to play

Her humility to ask for work, something that most people who never do thanks to glamourised egos, was inspiring to a lot of people. Her much celebrated designer daughter Masaba Gupta, in fact, regrammed her picture with a heartfelt caption.



Just the other day I was telling someone .. how I am never afraid/ shy to ask for work. Its obviously genetic. My mother put up this post on her instagram today. I mean,my 62yr old national award winning mother. She told me I must always work .. no matter what .. it keeps you from getting old...she told me they don't write for women her age anymore ... I don't think anyone can replicate what she did for TV anymore.. she complains that she can't do PR .. but says 'I do good work,that's my PR'.. time and again we've spoken about how whatever she asks for ... in due time ,she gets... But that's the magic of a pure heart. The universe just can't refuse you... the only advice I have the guts to give her is.. don't work with anyone who won't respect you ,at this age , that's the bare minimum & it's a strange strange industry she's in... the advice she gives me in return is..'whatever you do,free ka PR mat khaana,your only someone's kid/wife/niece/sister for this long. Prove yourself. WORK. Walk the talk & fly ♥️😁♥️ @neena_gupta #neenaji

Just over a month later, we heard that Neena Gupta has bagged herself a role in Anubhav Sinha’s upcoming thriller Mulk, opposite Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu. The post definitely helped her clear the air about her seeking out to play good roles and the fact that she’s available and ready to sweat it out. “I have said 'yes' to a few TV projects but I am not sure about the pilot, the required approvals and slots. It's a long process. I have agreed to do two films too, but can't speak about them as I am yet to sign them. Pata chala koi aur cheen le mera role,” she joked in an interview with Mumbai Mirror.



We get Gupta’s hunger for roles, and really hope this film reinstates her right back into the industry, where she firmly belongs.
