In a recent conversation with Filmfare, Masaba got candid about her dating life after her divorce from her ex-husband, Madhu Mantena. Recalling one of her worst dates, Masaba revealed that once, she was judged by the way she was eating sizzlers. She said the person was making her feel uncomfortable about herself for eating potato and rice ‘muh kohl ke’. In her words:

“I get very irritated when I can't eat properly, I am somebody who loves my food and loves to eat it muh kholke.”


Further in the conversation, the fashion designer shared that she had been on good dates and bad dates. While at times Masaba was ghosted, she said she had too ghosted some people for good reasons. The actress said that there is no elegant way of eating a sizzler as whenever she takes a bite, food particles fly out of her mouth. She stated:

“I was on one date, where I felt like I was being judged by the way I was eating a sizzler. There is no elegant way of eating a sizzler, because each time you cut something, something is flying, something is happening. So yeah that was a bad one, where I was just being judged for eating my aloo (potato) and my rice.”

Earlier, in a conversation with Pinkvilla, Masaba had shared an awkward phase of her school life, when people used to harass her because of the way she looked. She had shared that once, she had taken a foundation from her mother, Neena Gupta’s makeup kit, to lighten her dark skin tone. Masaba could be quoted as saying:

“I remember when I would step out for school around in the 8th grade. What I did was I picked up my mom's foundation one day, I quietly went into her makeup kit and I said let me try her foundation and just make myself look lighter. I did that, and I obviously didn't realise that it's not the colour of my skin. And I went to school, and everyone has obviously figured it out. Because I used to never put on the light in my bathroom, it would be dark because I didn't want to look at my skin. So with the lights off, I would conceal my scars whatever I could see, and they were literally like against my dark skin, they were like white spots." 


On the work front, Masaba Gupta was last seen in Amazon Prime’s series, Modern Love: Mumbai.
