The Badhaai Ho actress further divulged that back in the time, her boyfriend would tell her, “Sharam kar, tu Bombay naukrani banne aayi hai. Yeh karni aayi hai? (Have some shame. Have you come to Mumbai to be a servant and cook meals?)” She added that he would ask money from her for cigarettes and yet dared to tell her that she should be ashamed of working.

Since the Mast Mein Rehne Ka actress wasn’t afraid to do small chores, she would do any kind of work at NSD (National School of Drama). “We used to do everything. Right from sweeping the floor to everything. At my place, while growing up also, my mother was a Gandhian. We didn’t have a servant. We used to do everything at home ourselves. I’m not shy to do any kind of work,” Gupta divulged.

She recalled, “I told everyone, paisa maangne mein sharam hai, kaam maangne mein sharam nahi hai mujhe (I’m not asking people for money; I’m asking people for work and I’m not embarrassed about that).”
