“Having Masaba Is The Best Decision Of My Life," Says Neena Gupta; Explains If She Had To Do It All Over Again, She'd Do It Differently - EXCLUSIVE
On 2 November 1989, actress Neena Gupta gave birth to her daughter Masaba whose father the legendary West Indian cricketer  Vivian Richards was not married to Neena.

By becoming a single mother, Neena sent shock waves across  the  conservative  corridors  of  the Indian entertainment industry. Also read: Neena Gupta On Being Brutally Honest In Her Autobiography Sach Kahun Toh: Being Transparent Gives You A Certain Power - EXCLUSIVE

 Looking back the Badhai  Ho actress has  no regrets about her decision. However  she  wishes Masaba had a father at home to  share Neena’s parenting  responsibilities. “Having Masaba is the best  decision of my life. But if I had to live my life again I’d want  to have a family and a husband to support my  parenthood. I’d want the  child’s father  with me. Not so far away.”

However  Neena  is thankful  for her daughter. “What I’ve got  is most precious, Sure, I made sacrifices. But it’s all worth  it. Masaba  is  the  best thing to happen to my  life.”

In   an interview with  me in 2008 when Neena got  married to Delhi-based  Vivek Mehra  ,she  had said to me, “Much as I'm thrilled with the new developments in my life, Masaba is my top concern. She always will be. I can't leave her alone in Mumbai where she is studying fashion designing. So I guess I'll be shuttling between Delhi and Mumbai. You see, at the end of the day it’s just me for Masaba. So I can’t afford to slip up.”
