Celeb autobiographies are a handbook of sorts for those wishing to follow in their footsteps. Seems like Neena Gupta, who had to navigate the choppy waters of the industry all by herself, knew this when she started writing her book, ‘Sach Kahun Toh’, which is a tell-all about her life so far. Besides sharing anecdotes from her life, the actress has also made it a point to impart the wisdom that comes from living a life as adventurous as the one she has had.
In conversation with Vinita Dawra Nangia, Times LitFest Director and Executive Editor, ETimes, the actress opened up about what prompted her to pen down tips and tricks to survive in the cutthroat world of movies, and also shared an account of her mistakes for others to learn from.
The actress admits that even now sometimes her mind goes somewhere else.
Is that why she stresses the importance of a mentor in the book?
Like her other follies, Neena has also regretted the manner in which she dealt with the media in her heydays–by being completely open about her life and sharing details of her private affairs without inhibitions, only to have it to be splashed across the gossip columns the next day.
