Neena Gupta on receiving fame after working for 3 decades: I am not Amitabh Bachchan

Neena Gupta is an Indian actress-writer-director who has worked extensively in Bollywood and in Television. Having worked for about 3 decades in the industry, the actress still considers herself ‘little’ successful. Well, that’s true in a way as people started noticing the actress after her stint in 2018’s Badhaai Ho. The film was a huge hit and earned several accolades when it released. In an interview with India.com, the Panga actress opened up as to why she has not embraced her success completely.

“I am not Amitabh Bachchan,” Neena Gupta said while adding, that there aren’t roles written for women per se. “People noticed me after Badhaai Ho. I think right now, I am known as a good character actor. I have not got that kind of fame. There are very few roles for women. I can’t be the heroine. Men (of my age) can still do main-leads. Women can’t,” the Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan actress told India.com. Also Read – Will Arjun Kapoor’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar release online? The actor answers

Having worked in the industry for so long, when asked whether she wants to have a relaxed life now, the actress is not open to that idea. “It depends on the way you have been brought up. I have always had ambitions. I never felt like getting married, settling at home and looking after kids and family. I always wanted to work and make something of myself. My parents always told me to be passionate,” she told the portal. Also Read – ‘Why can’t women fart?’ asks Neena Gupta as she wonders why females are expected to be perfect at all times

Further, the actress added that she is not looking to have rushed life as all the gen-y actors lead. “I am quite content in life otherwise. I thank God every day that he has given me so much. I definitely want to get good work. I am positive and satisfied,” the actress added.

Tahira Kashyap on directing husband Ayushmann Khurrana: ‘I need to earn a position where I deserve to direct him’

Just like Ayushmann Khurrana, wifey Tahira Kashyap has impressed us with her talent through her creativity. Her short film, Toffee and Neena Gupta starrer Pinni, which was part of Zindagi InShort received appreciation from the audience. While a feature film is on the cards for the writer-director, Tahira might not work with husband Ayushmann Khurrana as she feels he is quite senior and she needs to earn a position to direct his husband and versatile actor.
