On June 4, 2020, Neena Gupta had turned a year older and it was her darling daughter, ace fashion designer, Masaba Gupta, who had penned a heart-melting birthday wish for her mother. Masaba had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared a throwback picture of Neena ji with an adorable caption which could be read as “Happy Birthday mom.

Neena Gupta is known for speaking her mind, without mincing her words and her daughter, Masaba Gupta feels proud about the same. In an interview with Mid-Day, Masaba had revealed how Neena ji is not a typical Indian mother and had said, “I discovered one thing about my mother that she is not the typical mom. I mean it in the best way possible, because I have seen kids who are really bad at what they do, being told that they are kings and queens of their respective professions, by their mothers.” Thanking her mother for keeping her grounded, Masaba had said, “There is nothing more damaging to a child than that, because your child has no connection with reality. Your child will grow up to think that they know everything, when none of us do. My mother has made me somebody who is very grounded and in touch with reality.”
