Bollywood actress Neena Gupta, 60, has been in the news recently for revelations about her personal life as well as her daughter Masaba's divorce.      
The actress who recently featured in the movie Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, revealed that she was devastated when Masaba got divorced with her ex-husband and filmmaker Madhu Mantena. Masaba and Mantena got married in June 2015 in a court marriage and filed for divorce in March last year.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Neena Gupta was quoted as saying, "I was devastated when I heard it," reported NDTV. Adding that Masaba helped her "come to terms with it", Neena Gupta said, "Actually, it was Masaba who helped me come to terms with it. Initially, I couldn't accept it at all and it affected me." 
Earlier, Masaba was born to Neena Gupta and West Indies cricketer Vivian Richards out of wedlock. The actress said on the sets of reality show Indian Idol 11, "My father played a very important role in raising my daughter. He especially shifted to Mumbai to help me. I cannot express how thankful I am to him. He was my backbone during the most crucial time of my life."
