Veteran actress Sarika was quite active in Bollywood during the 80s but like many of her contemporaries, she also faded away from the silver screen as the time passed on. Earlier this year, she made her acting comeback with Sooraj Barjatya's film 'Uunchai' and recently she was asked whether Neena Gupta's plea for work, helped other actors like herself.

For the unversed, few years back, actress Neena Gupta had publicly asked for work. Sharing a picture of herself on Instagram, she had written, "I live in Mumbai and working am a good actor looking for good parts to play.”

In her interview with Siddharth Kannan, Sarika stated that Neena Gupta's plea was an individual victory and it didn't really open doors for others actors of her age. She said, "I think it’s Neena ji’s individual story but it was not as if actors were not getting roles. It is her individual story that she started getting so much work which is amazing and it’s brilliant that she went and put herself out and said, ‘I want work’. Then she got work because she is a good actor, it’s brilliant. But I don’t think it is that that opened for everybody.”

The actress further added, “I think Shefali has been doing great work. There are so many good actresses who have been working. I love Sheeba. I just love Sheeba’s work. We worked together in Parzania also. Now, when I see her work, it is amazing. So, I don’t think Neena ji opened the gate for all other actresses, it was in her case that she did something which was praiseworthy.”
