Masaba Gupta recently talked candidly in a new interview about being hailed as a “millennial star,” “destiny’s child,” and “game changer.” The fashion designer, businesswoman, and actor claimed that she appreciates such labels. Unlike her mother, the actor Neena Gupta, Masaba said she enjoys “tags” and “goes after them” as they are essential to her. Masaba emphasised her “very ambitious” nature and hoped to “influence a generation” with her work.
Masaba also talked about reading the Prime Video film Modern Love Mumbai (2022) reviews, which included her and her Netflix programme, Masaba Masaba. She claimed that she “reads the good stuff and the bad,” adding that she does it repeatedly to “discover something” that could aid in her development as “a better actor or a businessperson.” Masaba Gupta said she appreciated being relevant and that since “not everyone can be relevant,” she “always welcomes” the term.
“I’m not like my mom (Neena Gupta, actor). I like tags, and I go after them because they are important to me. I’m very ambitious like that. I want to be called multiple things. I want to influence a generation,” said Masaba to News18. She further stated, “Labels like reviews are always welcome. I take everything I can get. I love it. I collect all my magazine covers and read them right from the first word to the last. I frame them sometimes.”
In August 2020, Masaba, a jewellery designer who runs her beauty brand, made her acting debut with Masaba Masaba. Neena Gupta is also a part of the Sonam Nair-directed film.
Masaba had previously discussed if she had ever had any disadvantages as the child of Neena Gupta and father, former West Indies cricketer Viv Richards in an interview earlier this month. While it has generally benefited her, Masaba acknowledged that there had been times when it hasn’t. Masaba made this statement in an interview with News18. Masaba remarked, “I think 70 per cent of the time it has helped me, and 30 per cent of the time it’s gone against me. And it has gone against me because 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 others.
