Many Bollywood celebrities are there who are looking for work despite having a gleaming start to their career. Most of them resort to PR while rest of them give up hopes. Maintaining a public image in the showbiz is a tedious task, which makes most of the stars conscious about their action. But what Neena Gupta did recently is inspiring many young actors one of which is none other than Priyanka Chopra.  Neena Gupta, popular for her acting prowess in films like Khalnayak, Jaane Bhi Do Yaar, Kamzor Kadi and Gandhi posted a picture on Instagram with a caption that surprised everyone including her daughter Masaba Gupta and popular actress Priyanka Chopra. 

She posted: I live in mumbai and working am a good actor looking fr good parts to play. 

While many of you might think that the actress is short of work and projects. But let us tell you there’s nothing of that sort. The National Award winning actress, wrtier and director need not do that but still her post on social media has an important message for all the youngsters in Bollywood. Maintaining a humble demeanor no matter on which pedestal of life you are is the lesson we get from the post.

Her daughter Masaba Gupta who is a renowned fashion designer in industry shared the post and even wrote down a heart-warming message for her mother. 

Just the other day I was telling someone .. how I am never afraid/ shy to ask for work. Its obviously genetic. My mother put up this post on her instagram today. I mean,my 62yr old national award winning mother. She told me I must always work .. no matter what .. it keeps you from getting old...she told me they don't write for women her age anymore ... I don't think anyone can replicate what she did for TV anymore.. she complains that she can't do PR .. but says 'I do good work,that's my PR'.. time and again we've spoken about how whatever she asks for ... in due time ,she gets... But that's the magic of a pure heart. The universe just can't refuse you... the only advice I have the guts to give her is.. don't work with anyone who won't respect you ,at this age , that's the bare minimum & it's a strange strange industry she's in... the advice she gives me in return is..'whatever you do,free ka PR mat khaana,your only someone's kid/wife/niece/sister for this long. Prove yourself. WORK. Walk the talk & fly

When the topic of nepotism is heating up in the industry, seeing such a humble post by a veteran actress is a relief. People were overwhelmed to see the photo and some fans even asked for the actress to make a comeback in TV serials. One couldn’t forget Neena Gupta’s staggering performance in yesteryear’s TV show ‘Saans’. 

Priyanka Chopra herself commented on the post. She wrote ‘inspired’. And we’re more than just inspired to see such a modest gesture by a famous actress like Neena Gupta.
