Mumbai: Well-known fashion designer and actor Masaba Gupta has finally opened up on whether being the daughter of actor Neena Gupta and West Indies cricketer Viv Richards has ever been disadvantageous to her. In a recent interview, she said that it has helped her most of the time but there were occasions when it didn’t work out for her.

“I think 70% of the time it has helped me, and 30% of the time it’s gone against me. And the reason it has gone against me is because I think that every time I do a bunch of things people think, ‘Oh, she has so much support from her parents financially’, or they think I have more doors open for me than other people,” she said.

Talking about having her own podcast, Masaba said, “I know that a lot of people think that I do too many things, but I just do whatever brings me joy. As I went through the process of learning what a podcast is, I discovered I was able to be the messenger for so many women and their stories. I think that’s the way I express myself. And when I’m an actor, I’m actually a completely different person. I find it a very meditative space where we have the ability to get into the skin of somebody else, and really become a different person.”

Meanwhile, Masaba started her podcast, ‘How I Masaba’ where she talks with women about business, art, culture, and more. As quoted by the news agency PTI, Masaba had said, “This is going to be really special since I get to talk to women I am inspired by every day. Expect a non-preachy, honest, and crazy exchange of ideas, stories, and even mishaps.”

Masaba was seen in featuring in the Netflix series Masaba Masaba in 2020, which also features her mother. The second season of the show was released in July this year. It is based on the highs and lows of their personal and professional life. She also starred in Prime Video’s anthology series Modern Love Mumbai.
