Bollywood actress Neena Gupta is having a commendable second innings at the industry. Recently seen in Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, the actress in the checklist of several filmmakers. The 60 year old actress is also a regular at Instagram keeping her fans updated with her work, life lessons and style file. Recently baring about her personal experiences, Neena in her latest episode of ‘Sach Kahoon Toe’ advices her fans to not get into a relationship with a married man.
Starting her message with how women in love with married men are given age old excuses repeatedly about society, property, children, Neena said, “He told you that he doesn’t like his wife, they aren’t getting along for a long time. You fall in love with him, he is a married guy. Then you say ‘why don’t you separate’. But they say ‘no, no there are kids, I don’t feel like, let’s see what happens, maybe some day’."
Further explaining how things can get complicated and eventually the one without the family suffers, she said, "So you start meeting secretly and go on holidays, but he finds it tough as he has to lie about his plans. Then you say that you want to do a night stay as well and then you go to a hotel and spend the night. Then you want to spend more nights together and ultimately you want to marry him. You push him to divorce his wife but he says ‘wait for some time, I am working on it, it’s not so easy, there is property, there are bank accounts etc etc’. Now you are getting panicky, frustrated and you don’t know what to do. You eventually think about leaving him as you don’t want to get into so many complications. He then says FO (f*** off) to you. Then what do you do?”
She ends the video citing her case and goes on to advice, “Do not get involved in all this, do not fall in love with a married man. I have done this before, I have suffered. That’s why I am telling my friends, you all, try not to do it.”
The ‘Badhaai Ho’ actress earlier in an interview with Mumbai mirror said, “I would not have a child outside marriage. Every child needs both parents. I was always honest with Masaba, so it did not affect our relationship, but I know she suffered.''
Neena was in a highly publicised relationship with West Indian cricketer Vivian Richards in the 1980s, with whom she has a daughter Masaba Gupta, a fashion designer, who was single-handedly brought up by the actress. Neena and Richards never got married.
