"Just make the marriage work”, Neena Gupta advises daughter Masaba


Neena Gupta and Vivian Richards’s daughter Masaba Gupta had a quiet court wedding with producer Madhu Mantena on July 3. They have legally sealed their marriage and now the rituals are due in November. The couple will have a Caribbean wedding as it was a long cherished dream of designer Masaba Gupta.   

Neena Gupta on this special occasion has just a single advice to her darling daughter, "Just make the marriage work." Neena reveals her heart out about Masaba and Madhu, who were confused where to get married. "Madhu and Masaba were so confused about where to get married, kabhi it was Europe, kabhi the Carribean! Finally, I told them to get the relationship formalised in a court first," she laughs. 

“It is most likely to be a Caribbean wedding in November." Madhu adds, “The court marriage was just a technicality we wanted it out before the wedding in November.”

The couple was officially engaged in March this year. Masaba announced her engagement to her beau though social media, she tweeted about the special day.  "Kal hamaari sagai thi. Aaj hum khush hain. Aur 7 din mein hamaara show hai! Thank you for the love, now back to wrk," tweeted Masaba,

The court wedding was followed by a quiet dinner at a suburban hotel. The ‘Shandaar’ team  Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and director Vikas Bahl  and close family members were present.

The newlyweds were surprised by Madhu's dad who arranged an orchestrated bash. Madhu’s cousins and friends flew all the way from Hyderabad and Madhu was thrilled to see his extended family.
