Actor Neena Gupta, who had tweeted last year on her Twitter handle saying, "Apna time ayega," recently opened up about the tweet at a promotional event for Kangana Ranaut's new film Panga on Wednesday. Neena Gupta said that her time has come, even though it was a bit late, she managed to get through it. ("Mera time a gaya hai... der se (but) agaya.”) Neena Gupta who is currently very busy juggling promotional duties for her two much-awaited film, Panga and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, has often called out Bollywood for considering older actresses as obsolete, said at the press conference that she is happy with the film offers she's getting.
During the promotions, Neena Gupta quoted a few lines from a poem written by actor Rakesh Bedi for her, she said: "Mera time a gaya hai... mera time a gaya hai... (My time has come) phir main sochu, mera time mujhe chhorke gaya hi kab tha... (then I think time had never left my side) main hi lambi chutti pe thi... kaam pe dhyan diya hi kab tha (I myself was on a long vacation, wasn't concentrating on work)." Watch the video here.
Actor Neena Gupta plays Kangana Ranaut's mother in Panga while in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, she features as Ayushmann Khurrana's mom-in-law.

However, the 60-year-old actress was asked to make an exit from Sooryavanshi after just a few days of the shoot as her casting as 52-year-old actor Akshay Kumar's mother did not work out.
