She made her debut in the entertainment industry in 1985 and had a sort of resurgence in her career last year with the film Badhaai Ho. There is no looking back for Neena Gupta since then, as film offers have continued to pour in. The 60-year-old actress is now eager to play a comedy role. Whether it is in Panga or Akshay Kumar-starrer Sooryavanshi, the actress is portraying “interesting” roles of a mother. But what are the roles she is looking for?

“I want to play a comedy role, really. I am genuinely interested in comedy and I know that I have good comic timing as well. I want to try something on situational comedy. Earlier the scenario was different. If you did one comedy role, you would get a tag. In fact, I faced that too. But those days are gone. So I am eager to do comedy,” said the two-time National Award winner. After Badhaai Ho, Neena appeared in the Netflix film Music Teacher, Amazon Prime Video web series Made In Heaven as well as a feature film titled The Last Color. — IANS
