Besides her powerful on-screen performance, veteran Bollywood actress Neena Gupta has often made headlines for her opinions on various aspects of day-to-day life.

The Badhaai Ho actress said, “I want to say that it’s not necessary to believe in ‘faltu feminism’ (useless feminism) or the idea that 'women are equal to men'. Instead, focus on achieving financial independence and giving attention to your work. If you’re a housewife, don’t look down on it; it’s an important role,” in Hindi. 

Gupta further added, “Boost your self-esteem and avoid thinking of yourself as small. That’s the main message I want to convey. Additionally, men and women are not equal. The day men start getting pregnant, that day we will be equal."

To explain her ‘You need a man’ remark, the Goodbye actress asserted, “I will tell a small story. I had to catch a flight at 6 am. I did not have a boyfriend at that time. I came out of the house at 4 am and it was dark. A man started following me, and I was so scared. I went back to my house and I missed my flight. The next day I booked the same flight. But I stayed at my male friend’s house and he dropped me off. I need a man.”

Coming to the professional front, the 64-year-old actress was last seen in Charlie Chopra and The Mystery Of Solang Valley, a web show. Meanwhile, her last big screen project was Rani Mukerji’s  Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway. On the other hand, the actress also graced the OTT screen as she played a pivotal role in a segment of Netflix’s Lust Stories 2.
