Fashion designer and actor Masaba Gupta never felt the need to run away from the attention that she got because she was born to celebrity parents Neena Gupta and Vivian Richards. However, she said that people believed that she would inherit hundreds of crores from her father.
Masaba’s parents never married, and he continued living abroad during her childhood, but growing up, she was in touch with him constantly. The Masaba Masaba star was accustomed to being in the public eye, but she built her own empire in the fashion industry by launching her label, House of Masaba.
In an interaction with Twinkle Khanna on the Tweak India YouTube channel, Masaba said, “I was very grateful that I had what I had. Everyone tells me, ‘Oh you’ve become successful because of your mum and your dad’. Someone once apparently told a friend once that, ‘What does she have to do. Her dad left her hundreds of crores’. I said no, there’s no hundreds of crores. They are being built, but I am building that myself.”
She added, “But I never felt that it was a negative. I thought it was a positive, because I had such a great benchmark. I had two examples in my house on how great you can be and I always saw it like that.”
Masaba also spoke about finding refuge in sports, because she “grew up in isolation”. She shared how her father would bring very fashionable tennis dresses for her as she involved herself in the sport. The cricketing legend always wanted her to become a sportsperson. However, Masaba called herself an “angry tennis player,” and said that she couldn’t continue after a point.
“I think it was his dream to have me become a tennis star. And I was playing, I think I was number three in Maharashtra. That much I did with my anger issues. I did that much but no more than that,” she said. Masaba added, “In my head, I couldn’t talk myself out of it. And that’s what playing a sport like tennis is about, right? It’s what you play in isolation. You have to talk yourself out of every situation, every match point, everything you didn’t do on that court. I couldn’t do it.”
Masaba and Vivian were clicked together earlier this year at her wedding to Satyadeep Mishra.
