Recently, Neena Gupta launched her autobiography named, ‘Sach Kahun Toh’, where she had mentioned her relationship with the former West Indies Cricketer Vivian Richards. Neena and Viv have a daughter together named Masaba Gupta who is also a famous fashion Designer. During all this, a vintage video went viral where Viv Richards is seen accompanying Neena Gupta in a Bollywood event some decade old. Where they happen to meet great singer Asha Bhosale.
In the video, Neena is seen making a grand entry with boyfriend Viv Richards. They exchange greetings with many celebrities and sit beside Asha Bhosale. The couple conversed with Ashaji where Neena is seen relaying details to Viv. She tells him, “There’s an actor we have, she’s saying you’re looking like (him). I said, ‘No, no, he looks better.'” When Vivian asked which actor Asha was talking about, Neena mentioned Nana Patekar’s name. Asha asked if Vivian has met Nana and Neena said they haven’t. Later, Neena and Vivian joined Asha on stage, where Asha presented what seemed a cassette of an album, and the trio posed for the media.
Neena recently talked about her relationship with Vivian in an interview. She said she never put negative thoughts about Viv in her daughter’s mind. She explained, “I had Masaba because I loved Vivian. And if you love somebody, you can’t hate somebody like that. You may not live or do things together – woh dheere dheere pata chalta hai (you get to know that slowly). But you can’t hate. Aisa toh nahi hota ki aaj love hai toh kal suddenly you hate (You can’t love someone one and hate them the next). And how can you put this thing in your daughter’s mind about her father. I don’t want to and don’t feel it. Why should I poison her thoughts? I have respect for him, he respects me and so, she has respect for both of us. It’s a very simple thing,” she told Bollywood Bubble in a recent interview.
