Celebrated Fashion designer Masaba Gupta shared an excerpt from her mother’s autobiography Sach Kahun Toh on Instagram on Wednesday (May 26). Masaba has shared about Neena Gupta’s pregnancy and the financial crisis she was going through at that time. Masaba Gupta shared pictures of the excerpts and also a cover of the book Sach Kahun Toh. In the excerpt, Neena Gupta talked about the time she was about to deliver her daughter, Masaba, and how she did not have enough money to get a C-section done.
Emotional Masaba captioned the post, “An excerpt from ‘Sach Kahun Toh’ by @neena_gupta: When I was born, my mum had Rs 2000/- in her bank account. A timely tax reimbursement would bump that number up to Rs 12,000/- and ofcourse I was a C-section baby. As I read mom’s biography, I learn so many things & the hardships she has had to endure. I work very hard every single day of my life and never ever let anyone not give me what I deserve only to make sure I can pay her back for bringing me into this world…with interest! #sachkahuntoh #neenagupta (sic).”

The excerpt read, “As my due date approached, I started to worry because I had very little money in my account. I could afford a natural birth because it would cost only Rs 2000. But I knew if I had to have a C-section, I would be in trouble because the surgery cost almost Rs 10,000. Luckily, a tax reimbursement of Rs 9000 came through a few days before my delivery and I finally ended up with Rs 12,000 in my bank account.”
The second passage said, “Good thing this money came through, because my doctor informed me that I would need a C-section. My father, who had come down at the time to help me through the birth, was livid. He said this was a ploy to just charge us more money.” Satyadeep Misra, Masaba Gupta’s rumoured boyfriend, also reacted to the post. Neena Gupta’s autobiography will be released on June 14, 2021.
