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.

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
