Shabana Azmi and Neena Gupta open BIG FM's 'Dhun Badalke Toh Dekho With Vidya Balan'

MUMBAI: The first episode of much anticipated BIG FM show, Muthoot Blue Presents Dhun Badalke Toh Dekho With Vidya Balan saw veteran actresses Shabana Azmi and Neena Gupta, who had a gala time. They spoke their heart out on the show that had a theme of Parental Romance for today.

When Vidya asked Shabana Azmi  on how romantic her husband Javed Sahab is, she shared, “Once while driving by a flower shop, I confessed my love for flowers to Javed Sahab. To my surprise, he bought all the flowers in the shop and presented it to me. It was so beautiful. Few days later, I was upset with him over a disagreement and the romantic man that he is, sent me a message, ‘Ussi makaam par kal mujhko dekh ke tanha, bohot udaas hue phool bechne waale’, reminiscing the incident we cherished together.”

Further, on being questioned on parental romance, Neena Gupta told Vidya, “It is sad that our society believes in an age limit for romance. One cannot romance if grown old, especially if you are a mother. Also, in most of the cases, parents don’t express their love to each other out of awkwardness and fear of being judged. This needs to be changed.”

Talking about whether she felt embarrassed getting married when Masaba was a young girl, she added, “Yes, I felt a bit of embarrassment when I was getting married. I worried how my daughter would react to my situation. Truth be told, I was in love at the same point of time, which is kind of precious. The feeling of embarrassment faded away after a point of time.”

Besides, Dhun Badal ke Toh Dekho was launched yesterday and has various partners on board like Muthoot Fincorp as Presenting partner, MX Player as the OTT streaming partner, VWash Plus by Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Ltd. as Co-powered partner, Tracer shoes as the Sports and Fitness partner, Senco Gold & Diamonds as design partners and Imagica as Vacation partners respectively.
