When Neena Gupta, Viv Richards and Masaba meet at a family reunion

New Delhi, March 8: Family is very important for popular fashion designer Masaba Gupta. Recently, the designer took a quick break from her work to spend some quality time with dad Viv Richards and mom Neena Gupta.  

Masaba accompanied her mother, actress Neena Gupta, to Dubai to surprise her father, former West Indies cricketer Sir Viv Richards, on his 66th birthday. The fashion designer also shared a beautiful picture on her Instagram account, in which both her parents can be spotted in a single frame after a long time.

Masaba also added a caption with the photo, which read, "It's been a bit astonishing, how short life can be... which is why I dropped every single ‘important’ thing I was doing to come surprise my dad on his birthday today and even had an impromptu family reunion. Missing the husband, though. Happy birthday, dad - I’m really trying to make this emotional, but you’re 66 now and still can’t send a Whatsapp and think a smartphone is the devil incarnate."

Neena dated Sir Richards in the '80s, and Masaba was born in 1989. The actress challenged societal norms at that time and broke stereotypes by giving birth to a child out of wedlock. She later got married in 2008 to Delhi-based Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant. Richards, too, is married to Miriam, and has two children – Matara and Mali.
