Veteran Bollywood actress Neena Gupta, who has done numerous movies, came into limelight with 2018 release Badhaai Ho starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Gajraj Rao, Sanya Malhotra, and others. The actress is currently busy with the promotions of her upcoming film Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Jitendra Kumar, Gajraj Rao, and others.
A couple of months ago, Neena Gupta made headlines for her tweet she posted ahead of Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu’s film Saand Ki Aankh. Things started when a Twitterati voiced his opinion about the Taapsee Paanu-Bhumi Pednekar starrer movie and said that he wishes actors like Neena Gupta and Shabana Azmi should have been roped in for such roles.
Answering to which Neena Gupta had tweeted, “Yes I was just thinking the same that hamari umar ke job toe kamsekam humse kara lo bhai.” The statement by the veteran actress started a debate on social media and the lead actress Taapsee Pannu also gave a befitting reply and gave examples of heroes playing the role of college kids.
However, in a recent interview, when Neena Gupta was asked about the same the actress gave a calm answer and stated, “I regret tweeting that. I think it was a mistake. I state it as my mistake because it meant nothing bad. I implied something different and it was taken as something else.”
The actress further said, ” I just meant that actresses like us, who are now getting old don’t get many roles in the movies, so a character like this should have come to me.”
On the work front, Neena Gupta will next be seen in Hitesh Kewalya’s film Shubh Mangal Zyda Saavdhan which is all set to hit the big screens on 21st February 2020.
