Neena Gupta is one of the rare gems of Bollywood who made her mark fearlessly in the industry. Recently, Kareena Kapoor Khan launched the actress’s autobiography titled Sach Kahun Toh. According to Neena, Kareena was the only one who should launch the book as she feels that both as an actor and a mother she is an inspiration.
Talking about a story that Kareena highlighted, Neena was quoted by Hindustan Times as saying, “It was a very traumatic experience. So they were doing my wedding scene in the series, Masaba was one-and-a-half years old. We were in a one-room flat. That day Masaba had a little fever. I didn’t take her to the makeup room because the walls were wet. I just wanted her to be within sight.”
She continued, “I sent the car back, and I brought her at lunch to the studio. I used to wait for the pack-up because I was feeding her also at that time. After some time, they extended the shooting. I quietly sneaked out to go to her and feed her and come back. I reached my room, I picked up Masaba, and I heard a blast. I came out, and after a few seconds, I saw a light man, coming towards me, and all fire on him. Then I came to know that if the first layer burns down, you don’t feel pain. He was coming to me and I was looking at him. He said ‘behen meri madad karo (sister, help me)’. I still remember what I said. I said, ‘Main kaise madad karun, mere haath mein bachcha hai (how can I help you, I have a child in my arms).’ That’s what came out of my mouth. And they took me to the main building.”
In the end she expressed her gratitude for all the success that she’s had.
