Masaba Gupta with dad Viv Richards on his 70th b’day


Masaba Gupta has shared a picture with  dad cricket legend Viv Richards, which was clicked some 2 months ago in March on his 70th birthday.

The designer-actress can be seen flashing an ear-to-ear grin as she stands next to her father. Viv Richards turned 70 in March but Masaba shared pictures from the celebrations after two months. She captioned the post: “To celebrate dad’s 70th birthday in Antigua – a golf tournament ( where he is happiest after a cricket field ) for charity to raise money for healthcare workers in the region who have worked tirelessly through the pandemic.”

In the comments section, Masaba Gupta’s bestfriend and film producer Rhea Kapoor wrote “genes” and added fire emojis. Rhea’s husband Karan Boolani wrote “Sir,” adding a cricket bat emoji. No points for guessing why.

On her dad’s birthday on March 7, Masaba Gupta posted a childhood throwback with her dad and she captioned the post: “I’d like to think I’ve picked up some of most powerful qualities from my parents. My father is unrelenting, focused, has lived his life in the pursuit of greatness, defied the odds, turned around his fate and spent his whole life to become a mental and physical force to reckon with. ‘All you got is yourself ‘ – I cannot explain how true this last line is and I see it come to life every single day as I set out in my pursuit to be even half as great as you – mentally and physically. Happy 70th birthday papa.”

Masaba is the daughter of veteran actor Neena Gupta and cricketing legend Viv Richard. Neena Gupta and Viv Richards were in a relationship in the Eighties. Viv Richards is married to Miriam while Neena Gupta later got married to chartered accountant Vivek Mehra.
