Masaba Gupta and Ritwik Bhowmik joined NewsX for a fun conversation as part of NewsX India A-List. The duo shared their experience of working together in Modern Love Mumbai, which is now streaming on Amazon Prime.
Speaking about her experience of the full-fledged acting stint, Masaba said, “No one knows, but I got Covid 3-4 days before. We had to start filming and my face was swollen. I was convinced that the production house will go with someone else. I was quite prepared to get rejected from the role but it was meant for me. Initially, when I read the script, I couldn’t understand my part as ‘Saiba’ as I have never used any dating app or gone on a serious date.”
Talking about her mother Neena Gupta’s reaction to her performance, Masaba expressed, “My mother has said that you have got my genes now. She says that you have a lot of things to learn from Ritwik. My mom was very impressed seeing my chemistry with Ritwik.”
Ritwik opened up about how his life has changed in the past 2 years of being in the industry. He said, “The quality of work has changed. The kind of scripts I get is very exciting. Every time I read them, I like them, I feel like, how did they think of me. Other than this, I feel nothing has changed. Frankly, I feel overwhelmed as I am receiving work. “
Sharing their thoughts on working on an OTT platform, he said, “We never had a plan, everything just happened to us, and we are looking forward to more work.”
