Neena Gupta Reveals Why She Did Not Marry Someone While She Was Pregnant With Masaba, “I Was Still Attached To Vivian”
Neena Gupta got pregnant while she was dating West Indies cricketer Vivian Richards but the two parted ways due to reasons best known to them. But the Badhaai Ho actress decided to have the child out of wedlock. She had also revealed that she got many marriage proposals while she was pregnant with Masaba Gupta but she rejected all those proposals because she was still attached to ex-beau Vivian.
Talking about the same in an interview with Sonali Bendre, Neena Gupta had revealed, “I was too proud of myself. I said I will not marry because I need a name, because I will get money. Like about this person who is gay. That was offered to me, that ‘you will get a name and you do what you want. I would never do that.”

She had further added, “I was still attached to Vivian, although we met very seldom. But there was a connect for quite many years. There was a connect with Masaba also. We used to go for holidays together sometimes and whatever time Masaba spent with him or I spent with him was very nice. There was no problem because we were away from his house. He has a wife and he has children. I will always cherish those memories.”
She concluded saying, “Also, I was not interested in anybody else. I was very happy, that, okay, the circumstances are such that we can’t get together, but whatever time we spend together is very nice. I was also very happy that Masaba can spend time together. Later on, she grew up. Then, you know how things happen.”
