In an interview with Curly Tales, Masaba said, “I spent my childhood traveling around the world, and I think this might be the best situation for a child. But I was born and raised in Bombay and I am a tough Mumbai girl. In other words, I could not stay in another city for more than two days for work or anything. I’m always been a Juhu girl, and that’s the neighborhood. “

Recently, Masaba said that his biggest regret was not being able to watch Vivian play during the 1983 World Cup. Masaba shared a clip of the final between India and the West Indies on Instagram Stories in December last year. “My biggest regret in life was not seeing my dad play on the field – I was so young. I would always say I was born 6 years late. I could not watch this iconic match, my dad., On the one hand, my country on the other,” she said.
Masaba spoke to FirstPost about his father in 2012, saying, “We are the same in many ways. One, I have his wrath. We are both very selfish. Well, selfishness is a strong word, but we come first. We are very important to ourselves. I think I inherited this, and even though we talk about things, I feel that his view of life is closer to me. One, he always says to me, family is important; there is no such thing as a friend. ! And both mom and dad are the same in what they focus on doing. “
Masaba is waiting for the release of the second season of his Netflix show Masaba Masaba, which also stars his mother Nina Gupta. The first season aired in August 2020.
