Neena Gupta and Masaba Gupta took a brave decision of baring their life in front of a global audience when they signed up for Ashvini Yardi's show Masaba Masaba. The show that traces the life of Masaba and her relationship with her mom, with a hint of fiction incorporated in it, starts off on the note of her divorce from husband Madhu Mantena. From how it affects the family to how she works it up and gets her life and career moving forms the crux of this inspiring tale.

Talking about the same, Masaba shares, "Everyone has a perception if you are divorced. I got so busy with work that I didn't even have the time to realise what was happening in my personal life. I had my own way of dealing with it." On the show, Neena Gupta can be seen getting really upset with the news of her separation. Was it the same in real life, we asked. Pat came the response from Masaba. "I think mom got affected more in real life as well. She didn't see it coming. That is a pretty accurate depiction of it on the show," she adds.

But a common perception that surrounded her forever is that she's a strong, independent woman and remained unaffected by the chaos in her personal life. Addressing that judgment socially, the celebrated fashion designer tells us, "It happens a lot. Somebody was telling me the other day and I completely forgot. I didn't give myself any time to process my divorce. So my uncle told me, 'Why are you on this treadmill? Can you just process this and then move on?' I think people take it for granted, that okay Masaba is strong, she will manage. I have changed drastically because I allow myself to not just grieve and feel down. I take two days off even when I feel celebratory. But no one knows what you are going through until you are going through it yourself. People understand how silly they were being, when they deal with it themselves."

Anonymous : These two are strong women. It's really nice to see how human emotional storms can be survived. Maintaining positivity in a pool of negativity is always inspirational. Even if some one may have who cares attitude but there are a lot who will find sense in such outcomes. Congratulations for the venture.

Anonymous : When a women celebrity takes divorce it is her fault to indians when men celebrity takes a divorce oh we knew it wouldn’t workout her wife was a witch. Just like when people blamed Amrita for saif and her divorce. Also their age gap. Like what he is so rich but still denied to pay for Sara’s college tuitions (Another name for classes in American college). Change your mentality Indians you hypocrites.
