Video: Neena Gupta chats with Kareena Kapoor Khan during the launch of Sach Kahun Toh
Kareena Kapoor Khan has launched celebrated actor Neena Gupta’s much-awaited autobiography, Sach Kahun Toh today. In an online interaction, the two women discussed their love and respect for each other with Kapoor Khan stating that she has always admired Gupta’s work and the way she lives her life. Gupta also went on to say that she especially wanted the Jab We Met actress to launch her book because she had noticed how Kapoor Khan had continued to silently work throughout her two pregnancies and post marriage and she had found it inspiring.
Gupta, who has always been candid about her personal life, told Kapoor Khan that besides a few “small affairs”, she’s not really had a companion since she moved to Mumbai. The actress is now married to Vivek Mehra. “In fact, while I was writing the book, I realised in my prime years I have been without a lover or husband. Because I came here, then small affairs, nothing really materialised. Basically, I was all alone,” Gupta said.
“Even with Vivian, he was far away, he had his own life. We met very seldom,” she added, alluding to her relationship with cricketer Viv Richards. The two have a child together – Masaba Gupta. The Badhaai Ho actress also revealed that she was on the verge of marrying a man who cancelled on her when she was shopping for her wedding clothes. “That happened. But what can I do? I moved on. I would have loved to get married to him. I had a lot of respect for his father, mother. I was living in their house. He’s going to read, he’s alive, he’s happily married. He has children,” Gupta revealed.
“People say I lived my life on my own terms. Actually, I never did. Wherever I went wrong, I accepted it and moved forward. I wanted to have a normal husband, children, my in-laws. When I see other people I do feel a little envious. I did not blame, I did not become alcoholic, because what I wanted I did not get,” she added, signing off.
