Actress Neena Gupta has worked in many TV series and movies like ‘Yatra’, ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’, ‘Gul ‘Gulshan Gulfaam’, ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’, ‘Trikaal’, ‘Swarg’ among others. Speaking to news agency IANS, Neena told, “When I came from Delhi to become an actor there were only films and no TV. Working in films is an aspiration for all actors. When I did not get roles in films then I did TV and got a chance to play all kinds of roles. TV gave me money, fame and name.”

Today the 59-year-old actress is getting lots of appreciations for the recent-release ‘Badhaai Ho’, but she said that today her fan following is all because of working on television. She said, “I used to get small and useless roles in movies. Then I thought I should do just TV and today the fan following I have is because of working on television.”
