National Award-winning actor Neena Gupta is coming out with a memoir, titled Sach Kahu Toh. In the book, the actress will talk about her life, spanning from her childhood in Karol Bagh, Delhi to her 35 years of professional career. The actress took to her Instagram and shared the news with fans on Thursday. Neena Gupta who is currently 61, told her fans that during the lockdown when she was in Mukteshwar she decided to “reflect” and “relive” her life journey by writing the book. The book will be published by Penguin Random House, India and is scheduled for a 2021 release.
“Taking long, winding walks every day, appreciating the sounds of the birds and basking in the chill of the mountain air, I asked myself, ‘Why should I write a book? What do I have to say that could help and inspire someone?’ “With so many incidents that have made me and also broken me, and I needed to free myself by getting them out. Reflecting about my life, my journey and the things I’ve had to overcome will make me feel better and lighter,” said the actor.
She added that through her book she wanted her readers to know that if despite her flaws, her broken relationships, and circumstances in her life, “she can get up, get going and look really good while doing so, so can they,” quoted by FirstPost.
According to the publishing house, the book is “a candid, self-deprecating portrait of the person behind the persona.” The book sheds light on unconventional pregnancy and single parenthood, it will talk about her struggle in the industry and how her never give up attitude led to “successful second innings in Bollywood”.
