Did you know Satish Kaushik had offered to marry Neena Gupta when she was pregnant?
Celebrated actor Neena Gupta has dropped some bombshells about her life in her autobiography, Sach Kahun Toh. The actress officially launched the book yesterday with an online interaction hosted by Kareena Kapoor Khan. In her autobiography, Gupta reveals that her close friend and fellow actor, Satish Kaushik, offered to marry her when she had her daughter Masaba Gupta out of wedlock. The Badhaai Ho actress was in a relationship with cricketer Sir Vivian Richards in the 1980s.
According to a review of the book posted on a film website, when Gupta was pregnant with Masaba, 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.” The actress has often discussed her relationship with Richards and the ensuing professional issues she had to face. “Well that of a bold, strong woman who does things according to what she wants to do. And a strong woman means a negative woman in our films. I used to get all negative roles like a dominating woman in the household but I told them that I want a bechari woman role,” she had told a leading daily once.
“Also, discussions about having a child out of wedlock (referring to her daughter Masaba) went on and on and on. Wo child to woman ho gayi abhi bhi child hi bol rahe hain (People are still calling her child, even though she is a woman now),” she added.
However, Gupta clearly is the last one laughing. She’s a fixture on the movie scene and has given some fine performances in commercially successful films in the past few years, from Veere Di Wedding to Badhaai Ho. She had also starred alongside her daughter in a semi-autobiographical show called Masaba Masaba which was a major hit.
