If you’re still confused thinking if Masaba Masaba is a reality show or a fictional story, let me help you with that. It’s a fiction story which has events from real life. The show digs into the personal lives of the fashion designer Masaba Gupta and her actress mother Neena Gupta. With just six episodes in the series, it comes as a crisp and refreshing storyline. We get to see behind the scenes of their glamorous lives we see onscreen. Strong females in the lead, taught us a few things that we can apply in our lives too.
Here are 5 lessons to take away from Masaba Masaba:
1. Never Give Up
Neena Gupta has come as an inspiration for many. From being a single mother to her journey in the industry, she has some valuable lessons to teach us all. Despite being a national award winner, she had no work in the industry for a very long time. But in her late 50s, she made a comeback with a spectacular performance in Badhaai Ho, and there’s been no going back since then.
2. Everybody Is Not Your Friend
Well, if you have not learned this by far now, please do now. Not everybody nice to you is your friend. People can say nice things about you on your face and can have fun with you at your parties, but that doesn’t mean they care for you. Make sure you keep the real ones close. Care is shown through the actions, not words! Always remember this.
3. Stereotypes Are Everywhere
Whether you’re a school going girl or a successful fashion designer, you’ll find stereotypes everywhere. It was really funny and sad to see that despite being such a known face, Masaba had trouble to find an apartment in a city like Mumbai (because she was a single woman). From finally getting an apartment to her crazy fashion show, she definitely knows how to rule alone!
4. Imperfectly Perfect Relationship
Just like any other mother-daughter duo, they have problems too. They also fight and argue on small to the big stuff. But in the end, they are there for each other. And that is all that matters. Sometimes, just coming back home and escaping the world, can solve a lot of problems.
5. Only We Understand Our Struggles
Masaba and Neena Gupta are very well known in their respective fields. Neena Gupta has been candid about her personal life on many platforms. She’s always been that fierce lady who knows how to survive in this world bravely. But we should never forget that the strongest person in the room also has their fights. People might see them as ‘brave’ ones but andar kya hai sirf unhe hi pata hai.
