Unable to contain her excitement after watching 'Badhaai Ho', fashion designer Masaba Gupta wrote a warm post on Instagram totally appreciating her mother and the movie.
Unable to contain her excitement after watching ‘Badhaai Ho’, fashion designer Masaba Gupta wrote a warm post on Instagram totally appreciating her mother and the movie.
Even before the official release of the Bollywood movie ‘Badhaai Ho’ starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra, people are all praise for it. First in the line to do so is none other than Masaba Gupta, one of India’s leading fashion designer. She is the daughter of legendary cricketer Viv Richards and actress Neena Gupta, who plays the very important role of the pregnant wife/mother in the movie Badhaai Ho.
Masaba watched the movie a couple of days ago with her mother in a special screening arranged for all the cast, crew and other members of the movie fraternity. She was extremely delighted after watching the movie. Totally unable to contain her excitement Masaba immediately took to Instagram and wrote a very warm post, wholeheartedly appreciating the movie and her mother’s performance.
It is the incredible acting of the entire cast that Masaba prioritised and spoke about first in her post. Having senior, experienced and very talented actors like Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao, Sheeba Chaddha, Surekha Sikri and many others, how can we ever expect anything less than stellar performances? Also with movies like Vicky Donor, Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Andhadhun in his kitty, I don’t think there is the need to say any more about the uniqueness of Ayushmann’s movies.
Words failed Masaba when she had to write about her mother Neena. She shared with us all, her mother’s personal regret of not getting to do ‘meatier’ roles when she was young. Masaba also gave her own reasons for this by saying that all nice roles have been saved for the second innings of her mother’s career, which is beginning now with Badhaai Ho.
Were you, like many others, under the impression that actresses’ careers are short-lived, only till they are glamorous or would end after marriage and children? Come out of the misconception folks! As Masaba wrote on her post, with the kind of movies Bollywood is coming up with these days, there is a bright second innings with better roles for everyone.
Lastly, Masaba individually appreciated the director, cast, crew, and everyone at Junglee Films (the producers) for making one of the warmest, funniest and loveliest movie. Funny indeed! We all got a peek into movie’s hilariousness from its trailer which itself looked very promising.

Badhaai Ho is directed by Amit Ravindernath, written by Shantanu Srivastava, Akshat Ghildial and Jyoti Kapoor. It addresses important issues like the stigma surrounding elderly couples who are sexually active, dealing with the idea of our parents having sex, and the fact that age doesn’t define sexual needs, in an extremely humorous way.
Badhaai Ho is releasing early as no one can wait. It is releasing today! Head to theaters for a hearty laugh and some highly entertaining family drama.
If you still haven’t watched, then here is the trailer for you.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 might have had a box office collection of 260 crores INR and entertained Indian audiences, but it's full of problematic stereotypes.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 starts with a scene in which the protagonist, Ruhaan (played by Kartik Aaryan) finds an abandoned pink suitcase in a moving cable car and thinks there is a bomb inside it.
Just then, he sees an unknown person (Kiara Advani) wave and gesture at him to convey that the suitcase is theirs. Ruhaan, with the widest possible smile, says, “Bag main bomb nahi hai, bomb ka bag hai,” (There isn’t a bomb in the bag, the bag belongs to a bomb).
Who even writes such dialogues in 2022?
Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
