Neena Gupta shares the importance of getting typecasted 

Actors who genuinely love their craft, often avoid getting typecasted into a certain type of role so that they can play a wide range of characters in their career. However, actress Neena Gupta shared a different perspective on this matter recently. Despite being an amazing actress, Neena was left without work for years untill she finally found fame and recognition with her role in 'Badhaai Ho'.

She feels that getting typecasted isn't as bad because it allows people to remember you whereas actor who aren't typecasted, tend to get forgotten by people. She told Bollywood Bubble, "Typecast naa hona usse bohot problem hai kyunki jab aap typecast hai toh kam se kam woh role toh aapko milega. Jab aap typecast nahi hai toh woh role bhi aapko nahi milta kyunki logon ko dhyan hi nahi aata apko kya dena hai. I had to suffer this."

Recalling an incident related to this very issue, Neena Gupta said, "Ek mera bohot acha dost film bana raha tha and mereko pata chala London mein gaye film banane, jiske saath maine woh ki thi Ladies Special, uska writer. Toh mujhe pata chala uski movie mein ek role hai joh mere umar ka hai, sab kuch hua hai, and he took somebody else. I called him ‘Aare tune mujhe nahi liya’. He was already shooting. He said ‘Oh aare yaar, mujhe yaad nahi aya’. So ye bhi hota hai ki dhyan hi nahi aata."

On the work front, Neena will be seen sharing screen with Sanjay Mishra in the film 'Vadh'. It is set to release on 9th of December.
