Neena Gupta recently launched her autobiography titled, Sach Kahun Toh. The actress had shared about an incident which she remembers when filmmaker David Dhawan shouted at her on the sets of Eena Meena Deeka. She burst into tears and was consoled by actor Juhi Chawla.
Neena Gupta was known as the recipient of National Award at that time. She shared that she was given a small role of a begger in the film. When she asked the filmmaker to give her character some line, he shouted at the actress.
Talking about the same, Neena revealed that she felt very bad, “I started crying when he said that and a whole lot of actors were there, and I felt very bad. Juhi Chawla was there and she took me inside and said, ‘Don’t worry, I have also cried many times when I started out.’ And then she explained that David is in a very tough situation, he has too much stress, and this and that. But my thing is, I always have this amazing capability of moving on. I used to pray so many times to God, ‘Hey bhagwaan, yeh film release na ho (God, let this film not release).’”
The actress shared that she has forgotten about the incident, “I am very friendly with David, I don’t keep it inside me. I am very friendly with him and his wife. But I will never forget it. I forgive but I will never forget. I moved on, I don’t know how. God has given me that strength,”
Neena Gupta was a part of the film, Eena Meena Deeka which also starred the late actor Rishi Kapoor and Vinod Khanna.
