In an interview with Mid-Day, Nina recalled trying to get in the way of Masaba’s acting career and being her “biggest critic”. Describing Masaba as ‘a lot of potential as an actor’, Neena said, “When I saw the first season, I was shocked. I am Masaba’s biggest critic. She gets upset because I would always criticize her. I am a mother, but she is a mother. But, I was so impressed with her work that I apologized for not letting her act. She has a lot of potential as an actress.”
Neena also reflected on her relationship with Masaba and how it was different from the relationship she shared with her mother. He also added that Masaba Masaba Season 2 tries not to shy away from reality. “We are not adamant to talk about it (mental health and other important issues) in a particular way. We addressed this sensitively. Every parent is a child support system. the important thing is [we’re highlighting] This is how you can talk to your parents and friends about your issues. During the day I could not talk to my mother like Masaba talks to me today. The whole dynamic has changed. In nuclear families, we don’t know who to talk to. We keep things (bottled) and they come out in a terrible way. Seeing how a mother and daughter talk can help people (do the same),” she said.
