Veteran actor Neena Gupta has always been full of always, both on-screen and off-screen. Recently, the actor’s daughter and fashion designer Masaba Gupta shared an old video of Neena where she can be seen receiving an award from late actor Amrish Puri.
The video is hilarious and interesting from the moment it starts. As a young Neena receives the award from Puri, the latter offers to shake his hand but the actress misses it. She soon realises it and shook Puri’s hand with a smile as the audience burst into laughter.
Neena looked splendid in a navy blue kurta with golden work on it. She paired her look with a gold choker, bangles and hair tied up in a bun. After she approached the mic, Neena said, “Kahiye Mr Roshanlal, apna yaara zara khasta haal. Sau ka note zara dijiye nikaal (Hello Mr Roshanlal, I’m in a crunch. Shell out ₹100).” A vibrant Neena walked back to her seat as the audience erupted in applause.
Sharing the video, Masaba wrote, “Vintage @neena_gupta – the greatest Video courtesy @notwhyral.”
Neena Gupta was amused by the video and commented, “Hahaha.” Reacting to the post, Gauahar Khan wrote, “She’s amazing,” while Mini Mathur commented, “She is the OG of cool.” Tahira Kashyap and actress Smriti Khanna dropped heart emojis in the comments section.
Fans also showered Neena with love and compliments. “I love how effortless she is. Love her hair. OG queen,” wrote one user while another commented, “Haha what an icon!!” A third user wrote, “Whaatt a cool cat she issssss,” while a fourth one commented, “She is such a beautiful woman….”
In her speech, Neena quoted a dialogue from her show ‘Buniyaad’ where she essayed the role of Bibi Jaan, the wife of Roshanlal who was portrayed by actor Mazhar Khan.
Meanwhile, Neena was most recently seen in the film ‘Dail 100’ which also starred Manoj Bajpayee and Sakshi Tanwar. She will next be seen in ‘Shiv Shastri Balboa’ opposite Anupam Kher and in ‘Good Bye’ with Amitabh Bachchan and Rashmika Mandanna.
