New Delhi: Bollywood actress Neena Gupta often remains in the discussion. Sometimes she remains in the headlines for her bold statements and sometimes for her films. But nowadays she remains in the news for her autobiography ‘Sach Kahun Toh’. In this book, the actress told those stories of her life which hardly anyone knows. One of them is that of Satish Kaushik.
In her book, Neena has revealed that when she was pregnant, film actor-director Satish Kaushik had offered her marriage. Satish wanted to marry Neena and give his name to their child. Which was rejected by Nina. Now Satish Kaushik has given his reaction on this.
Satish Kaushik has given his reaction while talking to Bombay Times. He has told why he had offered Neena for marriage at that time. The actor said, ‘We have been friends since 1975, and since then our friendship is strong. We call each other Nancy and Kaushikan. I know his family too. We both lived nearby in Karol Bagh, were also together in Delhi University and were also active in theatre. When Nina came to my college, there used to be a ruckus, the way she used to keep herself and talk, everyone was impressed. A few years after me, he also joined NSD. We started fighting in our own ways to make a mark in the film industry. We did many films together like ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’, ‘Mandi’ and ‘Tere Sang’. Although we got busy in our respective journeys, But whenever we met, the old memories were refreshed. I always appreciate her for the way Nancy has faced the hardships of her life, she has bravely faced the challenges of her life, especially when she was pregnant at the time of Masaba.
‘I applaud him for the fact that a girl decided to give birth to a child without marriage. At that time, like a true friend, I just stood by him and gave him confidence. I was very worried about them and didn’t want to let them feel alone. That’s why there are friends, isn’t it? As it is written in the book that I proposed her for marriage, then there was a very mixed feeling. It was a joke, it was a joke, it was respect and it was his support. I supported my best friend when she needed it. I told him, ‘I am not why do you worry? Hearing this, she turned and seeing me brought tears to her eyes. From that day our friendship became stronger. I am proud of her that she is doing a great job as an actress and she is married to a very nice man’.
