Neena Gupta has proved to be one strong woman. She was hailed by the media industry when she kickstarted her career. However, deep inside she has been a vulnerable person. She had her daughter Masaba with former West Indies cricketing icon Vivian Richards in the eighties. The duo never got married. Therefore, she raised her daughter as a single mother. But destiny brought back love in her life when she was around 50. She got married to CA Vivek Mehra. He is a New Delhi-based chartered accountant. The couple tied the knot on July 15, 2008. However, it was only last year when the two started living together as husband and wife for the first time. Now, Neena Gupta has shared thoughts about her marriage with Vivek.
Neena Gupta opens up on Her Marriage with CA Vivek Mehra
Neena lives in Mumbai but Vivek is Delhi based. So it was a task for them to know each other well. She had earlier shared that she had to talk to him in sign language because he was always busy with work calls.
“Initially, I used to crib, ‘Arre, we are together, but I hardly see you. You are always on the phone, I can’t talk to you.’ But now he says, ‘Arre, you are so busy! You are always on a call.’ And I am very happy like that, so I have learnt that I have to be busy myself. I read or do whatever. I cannot depend on him for my happiness or time to share.”
She added, “I call up my girlfriends and I talk to them. This first lockdown has changed a lot for me,” Neena told Film Companion.
Neena will next be seen in her upcoming film Sardar Ka Grandson. The film is slated for a Netflix release on May 18th. The movie also stars Arjun Kapoor, Rakulpreet Singh, Kanwaljit Singh, John Abraham, Aditi Rao Hydari and Kumud Mishra. The actress will also be seen in Vikas Bahl’s Goodbye. The movie will mark her first collaboration with Amitabh Bachchan.
