Neena Gupta and Vivan Richard’s romance brewed back in the late 1980s, when the West Indian cricket team landed in India for a series of cricket matches. The team was headed by Captain Vivian Richard who was famous for being the ladies’ man. Vivian was married at that time and even had two children. It is said that Neena and Richard met at a party in Mumbai, which led to an affair. She was soon pregnant with a baby but getting married to Vivian was totally off the cards. It was tough for her but she stood against the wishes of her friends and family, as she went ahead with her pregnancy to give birth to her love child, Masaba Gupta.

In an interview, Neena was quoted as saying, "Yes, I do have regrets in my life. Instead of what I did earlier, I should have got married at the right age and should have got children. Instead, my life started taking twists and turns and in most of the cases, it was beyond my control. When it came to making a decision, I always made the right choice."

In a recent interview, Neena said, "I feel it was a very selfish act on my part. Some of my friends told me it won’t be fair on part of the child, but kaun sunnta hai uss waqat, blind hotey hain. I also feel sad because she was lonely. I wish I had another child but circumstances weren't like that."
