The daughter of veteran actress Neena Gupta who has always made unconventional and bold choices in life, Masaba told IANS: "My mother is definitely ahead of her times... The choices that she has made have been ahead of her times, but if you ask about my fashion, I don't know.
"I personally feel that when it comes to my work, I am very current. I am not that brave to be ahead of my times."
Masaba, who was born as a lovechild to Neena and West Indian cricketer Vivian Richards, considers her mother as her inspiration.
"My mother has this amazing ability to laugh at herself... Even in bad situations, she pushes herself and will be humorous. She is never afraid to go ask for work even at his stage of her career.
"She is never afraid to try something new, she is not afraid of not being in the limelight. She has always been my inspiration.a
