Neena Gupta REVEALS People From Small Towns Only Know Her For THIS Song: ‘I Thought I Was Popular But…’

She made a powerful comeback in 2018.

Neena Gupta recently opened up about her popularity in small towns and how she feels less popular.

Neena Gupta is not only renowned in Hindi cinema but has also established a prominent name in South Indian movies. Besides her film projects, Neena has always been in the limelight for her personal life as well. Neena Gupta had disappeared from the industry for a while. She suddenly made headlines when she sought work through social media. Neena, throughout her career, had expressed her opinion on any issue, regardless of its nature. Maintaining that trajectory, the veteran actress recently revealed a misconception she had about her stardom. As per Neena, she is popular in small towns only for Khalnayak’s song ‘Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai’.

Talking about the same with daughter Masaba Gupta on Luminary, Neena shared, “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. I just shot a film called Sabun with Jackie (Shroff). We were shooting in a lot of small places for that… Mahim, Vikhroli. People would crowd around to watch us shoot. The producers gave a bouncer to accompany me. But no one knew me there. Those who recognised me only recognised me for Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai. We forget that most of Indian homes don’t have OTT, they have television.”

She also humorously quipped,”Equating popularity with how many million followers you have doesn’t really mean anything, that doesn’t mean you are popular. I have done so much work and I used to think I am very popular. I just realised how less popular I am when I was shooting for Sabun.

I came back home and studied and found out that we are only making ourselves happy by looking at how many followers we have. It means nothing. Your benchmark is how much work you are getting, how much money you are getting and your film has to be a hit. Your work has to be seen by people.”

Neena Gupta will next be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s Metro… In Dino. The movie is likely to be released in March next year. The film comprises an ensemble cast of Aditya Roy Kapur, Sara Ali Khan, Anupam Kher, Pankaj Tripathi, Konkona Sen Sharma Ali Fazal and Fatima Sana Sheikh.
