Hyderabad: Actor Neena Gupta’s daughter and fashion designer Masaba Gupta shared an old video of her mother accepting an award from late actor Amrish Puri. Well, uncommonly, she didn’t give a thanksgiving but instead delivered a line, seemingly from the 1986 serial ‘Buniyaad’.
Taking to Instagram, Masaba Gupta dropped the video in which a young Neena Gupta is sitting on a stage wearing a navy blue and golden dress.
Sharing the video, Masaba wrote: “Vintage @neena_gupta – the greatest Video courtesy @notwhyral.”
In the video that is now doing circles among celebrities and several netizens, Neena Gupta is seen getting up from her seat to receive an award from the ‘Mogambo’ (famous character played by Amrish Puri in ‘Mr India’) of Bollywood.
Then came a funny twist when Amrish Puri extended his hand, she was about to walk away as she was distracted – might be running the line in her head. Later, she mouthed ‘oh’ and shook his hands with a smile as the audience laughed.
She then approached the mic and 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 Rs 100).” As the audience began applauding, Neena Gupta with a young and energetic smile walked back to her seat.
The video has garnered over 3,66,000 views on Instagram. Reacting to the post, Neena Gupta wrote, “Hahaha”. Some of the celebrities also took a moment to shower love on the young Neena Gupta. Taking to the comments section, Mini Mathur said, “She is the OG of cool” while Gauahar Khan wrote, “She’s amazing….” Tahira Kashyap also reacted with a red heart emoji.
