Neena Gupta has been a household name in India for decades, but she recently admitted that her popularity is not as widespread as she thought. In a recent podcast with her daughter, Masaba Gupta, Neena revealed that people in small towns only know her from the song ‘Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai’ from the 1993 film Khalnayak.
Neena Gupta reveals she’s still mostly known for ‘Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai’ in small towns: “People don’t know my work in Badhaai Ho or Saans”
Neena recalled a recent incident when she was shooting with Jackie Shroff and no one even recognized her. "In a lot of places, especially the smaller towns and cities, people don't know my work in Badhaai Ho or Saans, they only know me for ‘Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai,’ till today," she said.
Neena attributed her lack of recognition in small towns to the fact that most homes do not have OTT subscriptions. "We forget that most Indian homes don't have OTT, they have television," she said.
The veteran actress also commented on the correlation between social media popularity and real-life popularity. "It is all about how commercially popular you are," she said. "Equating popularity with how many million followers you have doesn't really mean anything, that doesn't mean you are popular."
Neena shared that she was humbled by the experience of shooting with Jackie Shroff and realised that she was not as popular as she thought she was. "The crowd was going crazy for Jackie but no one even looked at me," she said. "He was a hero, he was a star."
