Much before Ekta Kapoor’s saas-bahu saga, National award winning actress, Neena Gupta, was a pioneer who changed the television industry with her progressive serials like ‘Saans’ and ‘Siski’.

Now, the TV industry is all about reality shows, and outrageous stories. Take ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’ and ‘Naagin’ for example. Also, as nepotism is at its peak, a great actress like Neena Gupta is unable to find work.

Hence, with no shame, she openly asked for work on Instagram and Twitter.

I live in mubai and working am a good actor looking fr good parts to play

Neena Gupta’s daughter, Masaba Gupta, who is a leading fashion designer,  appreciated her honesty and supported her zeal to work.


Just the other day I was telling someone .. how I am never afraid/ shy to ask for work. Its obviously genetic. My mother put up this post on her instagram today. I mean,my 62yr old national award winning mother. She told me I must always work .. no matter what .. it keeps you from getting old…she told me they don’t write for women her age anymore … I don’t think anyone can replicate what she did for TV anymore.. she complains that she can’t do PR .. but says ‘I do good work,that’s my PR’.. time and again we’ve spoken about how whatever she asks for … in due time ,she gets… But that’s the magic of a pure heart. The universe just can’t refuse you… the only advice I have the guts to give her is.. don’t work with anyone who won’t respect you ,at this age , that’s the bare minimum & it’s a strange strange industry she’s in… the advice she gives me in return is..’whatever you do,free ka PR mat khaana,your only someone’s kid/wife/niece/sister for this long. Prove yourself. WORK. Walk the talk & fly ♥️😁♥️ @neena_gupta #neenaji
