Neena Gupta had Masaba out of wedlock, ever since she has been a single mother and spoke boldly about her struggles and hardships of raising a child as a single mother. Neena found love again at 50 and decided to read the vows. Neena Gupta revealed the reason behind getting married at 50 in her latest interview and how did Masaba Gupta react to it.
Neena Gupta met West Indies' cricket team captain, Vivian Richards, who was already married. Neena was madly in love with him. Later she gave birth to their daughter Masaba Gupta knowing they don't have a future together.
Love came in Neena Gupta's life one more time in 2008, and she got married to Delhi-based Chartered Accountant, Vivek Mehra, and began her married life. Talking about her decision to get hitched at 50 and how Masaba reacted to it during an interview with ETimes she said, "Frankly, I didn't have to tell her. Vivek and I were going around for 8-10 years. He used to come down to my house in Mumbai, and I often used to go to Delhi."
"But yes, precisely speaking, when I told Masaba that I want to get married, she wanted to know why. I told her that marriage is important if you have to live in this society, else you don't get respect," she said.
She praised Masaba for being extremely supportive and welcoming her decision of getting married, "Masaba understood me. Masaba is one person who will do anything for her mother's happiness whether she likes it or not. So I was not worried. I was feeling a bit awkward in telling her that," she was quoted.
When Neena was asked about Masaba's broken marriage she was quoted saying, "I was very affected. But I have overcome it. I am okay now. Okay toh hona hi padhega na? Kya karungi? Life has to move on. As for the second part of your question, marriages are crumbling because women have started earning."
