The renaissance of Neena Gupta has been a wonderful thing to behold. Back in 1999, Gupta wrote, directed, and starred in the TV series Saans, a complex and progressive show about relationships. While the actress has always been iconic and ahead of her time, with each new on-screen performance and interview, the legendary actress has proven that she is the person we all want to be when we grow up.
But the actress’ presence on social media, and her unexpected truth bombs, are what has led to her becoming one of the most beloved online personalities right now. Recently, the actress posted a video online addressing trolls who shame women for wearing skimpy and sexy clothes.
Whether it’s setting an example for women everywhere by not being shy about asking for work when you clearly deserve it or calling out the Bollywood industry for casting younger actresses for older roles, Neena Gupta is the only celebrity you need to follow online and here’s why…
When she was unafraid in dragging the industry for being ageists
Yes i was just thinking about this hamari umar ke role toe kamsekam humse kara lo bhai https://t.co/6Fmrxn0HbE— Neena Gupta (@Neenagupta001) September 24, 2019
When she was brutally honest about being involved with a married man and warned women against falling for shady men
When she had no qualms about asking for work online
When she didn’t shy away from calling out people for not acknowledging her superior onscreen performance
When she was the self-love icon we all never realised we needed
It’s pretty clear that it’s Neena Gupta’s world and we’re all just living in it!
