After all the wait, Netflix India’s Masaba Masaba has finally released online, and the Indian web television series is based on the life of Masaba Gupta. Written and directed by Sonam Nair, Masaba Masaba stars Masaba Gupta, and Neena Gupta in lead roles while Neil Bhoopalam, Suchitra Pillai, Tanuj Virwani, Shibani Dandekar and Gajraj Rao also star in the series. As the name suggests, the series showcases the life of designer Masaba Gupta and gives us peek intp her family life, love life, and career as a designer. While Masaba and her mother, Neena Gupta, play fictionalized versions of themselves in the series, Twitter has showered praises on the series and the lead actors.
Masaba Masaba showcases six half-hour long episodes that take us through Masaba’s journey, who runs her own label to her divorce and its fallout, to moving back with her mother to Neena Gupta’s attempts to find work at the age of 60. Well, right from the announcement of the series, all of Neena and Masaba’s fans have been super excited to witness their life on screen, and now that Netflix has finally dropped the series, Twitter is all praises for the show.
In the show, we see cameos by a couple of celebrities such as Kiara Advani, Farah Khan, and others, and during an interview, Masaba had said, “Mom and I are playing fictionalised characters of ourselves in Masaba Masaba. The series is a slice of our lives and reliving key moments even though fictionalised, took me down memory lane. Sharing screen space with mom was quite an experience.” While one u user wrote, “Watched some episodes of #MasabaMasaba. You’ll like it if you’re an air-kisser or from the cocktail circuit or both. Since I’m not either, for me the only saving grace was @Neenagupta001. At 61 she’s a stunner and is such an effortless actor,” another user wrote, “I want @Neenagupta001 to be my mom…”
Just recently, the second season of Emily in Paris saw Mindy Chen (played by Ashley Park) donning Masaba Gupta’s Red Tribal Mask Maxi Jacket. Released on 22nd December, the show boasts a huge fan following across the globe. And watching House of Masaba take centre stage in the show’s styling is a proud moment for us!
Ashley Park paired the long red jacket with printed yoga pants. The bold black motifs on the shrug were the highlight of the ensemble! The actress kept her hair loose and opted for a casual vibe.
Meanwhile, Masaba Gupta has also launched the new Autumn-Winter 2021 Collection. Already a hit in the market, the range took inspiration from traditional Kashida embroidery and South gold.
