An embodiment of women empowerment, Neena Gupta is one of the most loved actresses of both theatre and commercial cinema. With parallel cinema like Mandi, Rihaee and Drishti, Neena had established her profile in Indian movies. It was in 1994 when Neena had made a breakthrough with the acclaimed drama, Woh Chokri, for which she had won a National Film Award for Best Supporting actress. In 2018, she had made a resurgence in her career with the comic-drama, Badhaai Ho.
Neena Gupta, who lives in Mumbai is currently spending her time in the hills of Uttarakhand, where she has been hanging around with her hubby, Vivek Mehra, daughter, Masaba Gupta and their dog, Mila. We have often seen Neena treating us with the picturesque beauty of her Mukteshwar home. From strolling on the hills, chilling with her dog, Mila, and farming, Neena is enjoying her life to the fullest. She has been sharing glimpses of her perfect pahadi life on her social media handle and we are completely awestruck by the beauty of the place. Let’s take a look at Neena’s gorgeous home in the hills of Uttarakhand.
With a stunning view of the mountains and stretching clouds, where you can see the entire hill station, Neena Gupta’s home in Mukteshwar is a virtual delight. The view from her balcony, where Neena gets a head massage from her hubby, Vivek Mehra has a bed of luscious greenery. Her mornings begin witnessing the flowing clouds on one side of the hill station and a sparking rising sun on the other side. She loves sitting in the open, basking in the morning sun with a cup of chai in one hand, while enjoying the company of Mila, her dog.
While the exterior boasts the pictorial beauty of the hills, the interior of the house looks like a beautiful wooden palace. The pretty yellow bungalow is surrounded by greenery. The rooms are well-lit and offer space for reading and work. The wooden staircase in the house is not just apt for stunning pictures but also complements the house and its wooden décor.
Neena Gupta’s living room is a blend of pastel shades and floral décor. The colour of the walls of her living room is white, which makes the space look double. The wooden window frames and matching side tables give an earthy finish to the living room. A white sofa sits in the middle of the room. The house also boasts some royal taupe armchairs.
The living room also has a dining area with an oak wood table. A corner of the house also has a large bookcase filled with some amazing classic collections. Being a fitness enthusiast, Neena Gupta’s home has a dedicated spot for yoga, which offers a stunning view of the mountains. She had turned a corner of her home into her workout space.
Talking about Neena Gupta’s bedroom, then the entire room has been done in all warm wood tones. From the wooden floor, dark wooden cupboards to other furnishings, every bit of the room boast class as well as comfort. An intricate Turkish rug is placed next to her large white bed. With a white lamp and a wooden stand adding to the beauty of the room.
Neena Gupta’s outstretched luscious backyard comes with a row of potted plants and we have often seen Neena indulged passionately in her gardening. It also has a small stone pathway and a vegetable garden, which is taken care of by none other than Neena herself. Neena loves spending her time at this particular space, from where she has shared a number of videos on her IG handle.
Talking about Neena Gupta’s personal life, the actress has always been ahead of her times and her zest to fight all her battles has always been inspiring to many. Neena’s life has never been a bed of roses. From having an affair with actor, Alok Nath to her wedding with Shaarangdev, son of Indian classical vocalist, Pandit Jasraj being called off, Neena’s personal life saw many ups and downs. After the heartbreak, when Neena had met West Indies cricket team captain, Vivian Richards, he was already a married man.
Neena had fallen madly in love with him and had given birth to their daughter, Masaba Gupta. In an interview with the Mumbai Mirror, Neena had talked about her regret of having a child out of wedlock. She had revealed, “I would not have a child outside marriage. Every child needs both parents. I was always honest with Masaba, so it did not affect our relationship, but I know she suffered.” In 2008, Neena had married Delhi-based Chartered Accountant, Vivek Mehra.
Neena Gupta has single-handedly raised Masaba and the mother-daughter duo shares a very warm bond. Masaba is counted amongst one of the finest fashion designers in India. In 2020, we had seen Neena Gupta and Masaba Gupta sharing the screen together for the first time in the Netflix series, Masaba Masaba. The drama had showcased the insights of the cutthroat world of fashion, Masaba Gupta's love life, her relationship with her mother, Neena Gupta and the ups and downs in her career.
In an interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan, Neena Gupta had opened up about the void she had felt in her life because of the absence of a boyfriend or husband. When asked whether she had battled loneliness, Neena had replied, “Very often. It happened all my life. Because I didn't have a boyfriend or husband for many years. In fact, my father was my boyfriend; he was the man of the house. It has happened when I was disrespected at work.” Neena had further stated that she had never dwelled on her loneliness or let her past take a toll on her.
Neena Gupta’s lovely nest between the clouds is what we call a perfect home. Her aesthetic home is a perfect blend of modern and traditional tones.
