Masaba Gupta recently criticised former Pakistan cricketer Ramiz Raja for laughing at a racist comment directed towards her parents–cricket legend Vivian Richards and veteran actor Neena Gupta.
Check out her post here:

Masaba wrote, “Dear Ramiz Raja (sir) grace is a quality few have. My father, mother and I have it in spades. You have none. Sickening to see you laugh on national TV in Pakistan at something the world stopped laughing at about 30 years back.Step into the future. All 3 of us are here with our chin up. #ramizraja”

The Bollywood fashion designer also took to her Instagram Stories and wrote, ‘It’s nearly 2024- no matter who you are I will call you out on racism and shaming my mother on television. Won’t have it. That is still my fight.’

Masaba’s response followed the circulation of a two-month-old clip on social media, showing Ramiz Raja laughing at a remark made on a Pakistani TV news channel. In the video, the former chief of the Pakistan Cricket Board is seen chuckling when a comedian on the show makes objectionable remarks, stating that Vivian broke her heart when he began dating Neena.

Neena and Vivian Richards had Masaba outside of marriage and have led separate lives. Masaba was born on November 2, 1989, and Neena raised her as a single parent. In 2008, Neena tied the knot with chartered accountant Vivek Mehra. Vivian Richards visited India in January 2023 to attend Masaba’s wedding to Satyadeep Misra.
