While speaking to India.com, Neena Gupta said, "I am not Amitabh Bachchan. People noticed me after Badhaai Ho. I think right now, I am known as a good character actor. I have not got that kind of fame. There are very few roles for women. I can't be the heroine. Men (of my age) can still do main leads. Women can't."

She further asserted that strong roles are rarely written for women, especially at for actresses of her age. Neena also gave a piece of advice to all the women out there and said, "Your plan B and your dependency should be on your money. The money will help you with any problem. Every woman should have her own money. That's the plan B (for a woman) before anything else."
