Neena Gupta’s autobiography Sach Kahun Toh gave a deep insight into the roller coaster life of the actor, who is enjoying the second innings of her career. Now, we have got exclusive information that Sach Kahun Toh is all set to be adapted into a film. In a recent interaction with , Neena revealed that she is in talks with makers who are inspired the autobiography and have shown interest in giving it the screen treatment.
“Right before this interview, I met somebody who wants to do it. This was my first meeting. Let’s see what happens,” Neena said, as she dropped a hint on her biopic. We also quizzed the 62-year-old if she has an actor in mind to play her on screen. “Mere kehne se kya hota hai (My opinion doesn’t matter). The producer will decide who is fit for it. I cannot interfere in it and I have not even thought about it yet,” Neena replied.
Now, it will be interesting to see which part of Neena’s autobiography the makers will pick for the biopic.
Sach Kahun Toh, which came out last year, chronicled Neena Gupta’s journey from the time she took admission in the National School of Drama (NSD) to moving to Mumbai in the 80s and raising her daughter Masaba Gupta as a single mother. The book touches upon several chapters of her life – from her first marriage that lasted a year to how her daughter Masaba saved her life during a fire on the sets of Sanjay Khan’s serial The Sword of Tipu Sultan.
Last year, Neena Gupta spoke about how she took 20 years to complete the memoir as she was unsure if people will be interested in reading about her life. However, she took a leap of faith. And once she was done with it, she felt “a big relief”.
“If one person doesn’t do the same make which I did…after reading my book…it’s worth it,” she said in a statement.
On the work front, Neena Gupta is looking forward to the release of Panchayat Season 2. The Amazon Prime Video series, also starring Raghubir Yadav and Jitendra Kumar, will start streaming from May 20.
