Masaba Gupta Family
Masaba Gupta was born on 2 November 1989. Her mother Neena Gupta is an Indian actress and her father Vivian Richards, is a former West Indies international cricket player.
However, Masaba’s parents never married and Masaba Gupta was raised by her mother who shifted along with her family from New Delhi to Mumbai.
Little Masaba found a father figure in her late maternal grandfather. At the age of 20, Masaba rekindled the relationship with her father and both of them now share a strong bonding.
Masaba first had a relationship with Madhu Mantena, an Indian film producer and entrepreneur. Later, the couple got married in a court marriage held in Mumbai on June 2, 2015.
However, three years after their wedding, in 2018, Madhu and Masaba announced that they were parting ways. A year later, in September 2019, the couple officially got divorced. Commenting on the divorce, Masaba later said in an interview that her divorce wasn’t a very painful separation, but a very cordial and mutual one.
In 2020, on the sets of the web series ‘Masaba Masaba’, Masaba met Bollywood actor Satyadeep Mishra. After dating for three years, the couple got married in January 2023 in an intimate wedding ceremony.
Masaba Gupta Education
Masaba was quite passionate about dance and music and wanted to join the renowned Indian choreographer Shiamak Davar’s dance group. However, it did not happen as mother Neena discouraged her daughter’s plan.
Thus, Masaba enrolled in a course in music and dance in London but left in between as she felt lonely and homesick. Later, she enrolled at Shreemati Nathibai Damodar Thackersey Women’s University’s Premlila Vithaldas Polytechnic.
Masaba once disclosed that due to her dark skin tone, she had to deal with racist taunts and bullying as a young girl at school. She recollected those painful times when boys at her tennis class used to open her bag and toss her underwear around.
They even used to make fun of the size of her shorts and ridiculed her stating that the inside of her pants was black due to her dark skin color.
They also used to insult Masaba as she was an illegitimate child. Masaba went on to add that she could never outgrow those racist comments and bullying.
There is no information available in the public domain about Masaba’s tattoos.
When Masaba was a student at SNDT, Mumbai, she came up with a collection of seven garments for the fashion design graduation show. Her designs stood out from the rest and Wendell Rodricks, the leading fashion designer noticed her talent.
Thus, with his support, the 19-year-old Masaba debuted in Lakme Fashion Week 2009 under the Gen Next category. She went a step ahead and instead of opting for an internship with another designer, Masaba set up her fashion label ‘House of Masaba’.
Since then Masaba has never looked back and has grown to be one of the top fashion designers in India. Apart from garments, ‘House of Masaba’ has also forayed into beauty, fashion jewelry, accessories, swimwear, menswear, and several other segments.
She has collaborated with several renowned brands ranging from HBO to Samsung and Clinique to Nykaa. Also, leading Bollywood heroines such as Sonam Kapoor, Athiya Shetty, and Sara Ali Khan have ramp walked for Masaba.
The House of Masaba has both online and offline stores catering to the diverse requirements of fashion enthusiasts.
Spread over different fashion destinations across the world such as Essence in Jumeirah and Taj Exotica, Vesimi in Dubai; Este Couture and Pernia’s Pop-Up Studio in the United Kingdom, Anokhi Ada in Georgia, United States of America and Adaa in Bangkok, Masaba’s fashion label has a predominant presence in the global fashion industry.
