Neena Gupta Shares She Lost films As She Did Not Know The ‘Rules Of The Game’
Neena Gupta has proved her mettle in the Bollywood industry. The actress has got a career revival after Badhai Ho. Neena became the topic of discussion after she made interesting revelations in her autobiography titled ‘Sach Kahun Toh‘ which came out in July this year.
In her book, the actress has talked about how she lost on films because she didn’t know she was supposed to call people back herself. Recalling a particular incident, Neena has confessed that she lost out on an opportunity to work with noted filmmaker Shekhar Kapur just because she didn’t know the rules of the game by virtue of which she was supposed to call him back. Gupta has revealed that she kept waiting for filmmakers to call her back when she should have been calling them herself.
Talking about the same story to a leading daily, Neena has said, “It’s like any industry, you cannot enter a business without knowing the rules of the game. As I said, I didn’t call Shekhar Kapur back because I thought he had told me that he’d call me back. If there was somebody who was advising me, I’d not have missed the opportunity.”
“Later on, I was advised to write down the names of people to call in a week, and to make at least 10 calls every day, and to keep calling till there is a response. Earlier, I didn’t know all this,” she added.
Neena hit headlines a few years ago when she posted openly on Instagram asking for work. The incident was also recreated in the semi-fictionalized show Masaba Masaba.
On the work front, Neena is all set to return with the second season of the show Panchayat. She has films like Goodbye and Uunchai in the pipeline too. Neena was last seen playing the matriarch of a Punjabi family in Arjun Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh-starrer, Sardar Ka Grandson
