Bollywood actress Neena Gupta who had earlier stated that the actresses her age do not receive good roles is now breaking the internet with her comical role in the upcoming film 'Badhaai Ho'. The film revolves around the story of a middle-aged couple, with a grown-up son about to become parents again. The trailer released on Tuesday, and instantly went viral. Reportedly, commenting on the topic, actress Neena Gupta had earlier revealed that she did not even read the script of the film because the subject was so interesting. She further disclosed that the middle-aged female actors do not get the chance to play such interesting characters, and so this phase of life is not addressed only in Hindi cinema. However, she does believe that the change is now happening as the youngsters are writing such scripts. Ever since the release of the 'Badhaai Ho' trailer, it has garnered more than 10 million views.

Earlier in July, Neena Gupta had posted a picture of herself asking for work. The picture was then shared by her daughter Masaba Gupta, on the photo-sharing app, Instagram. It was further captioned as "She told me they don't write for women her age anymore... I don't think anyone can replicate what she did for TV (Neena Gupta is best known for her role in Saans) anymore... She complains that she can't do PR but says 'I do good work, that's my PR'... time and again we've spoken about how whatever she asks for... in due time, she gets."
