Bollywood's veteran actress, Neena Gupta, opened up when she was pregnant with her first child, Masaba Gupta. The timeless beauty has often been judged because of her life decision of having a child out of wedlock in the '90s. However, she had talked about many issues of her life in her autobiography, Sach Kahun Toh.
For the uninitiated, Neena and Vivian's love affair had brewed during a party, where they had first met each other. However, Vivian was already married at that time and even had two children. But as they say, love is blind, and Neena was just madly in love with the cricketer.
Neena shared many incidents of her life in her autobiography. From her marriage getting cancelled just a week before to being a single mother in the '90s. Recently, we stumbled upon an excerpt from her book, wherein she had revealed her then-beau, Vivian Richards' reaction to her pregnancy. She stated that Vivian had already left for his country when she found out about her pregnancy.
Neena's described how Vivian had reacted then. She wrote, "I also understood I wasn’t the only person who had a say in the situation. The baby’s father, Vivian, had an equal right. So, I called him one day and spoke to him for a long time.‘I’m pregnant,’ I told him. ‘Would you have a problem if I were to have your baby?’ Vivian sounded happy and said I should go ahead. This assured me that I was doing the right thing."
Neena’s personal life has been filled with gloomy days and storms, but she has been living her life with dignity despite it all. While Neena is considered an inspiration, she has said that she will never advise anyone to become a single mother.
On the work front, Neena Gupta will be seen in an upcoming movie, Dial 100!
