Beauty is a different kind of burden: Masaba Gupta

Mumbai: Popular designer Masaba Gupta says she has come to realise that beauty is a different kind of burden, which keeps changing with age.

Masaba, who is the daughter of veteran actress Neena Gupta and former West Indies batsman Vivian Richards, shared a photograph of herself sporting a black leotard on Instagram on Friday night.

“I have come to realise that beauty is a different kind of burden as you keep growing. When I was younger, it was more of a longing to be conventional and check all the boxes/fit-in kind of a burden. Now,that I am almost 30… It is more an unapologetic, rebellious kind of a burden. Either way, this whole damn idea of beauty is a burden,” she wrote alongside the image.

The designer said the photograph was taken on a mobile phone and was “completely unedited”.

“Which is important in the age of severe retouching. It is fully dedicated to my trainer Vilayat Husain – thank you for making me somewhat strong, again. I strive to be the strongest person you have trained, ever. Both mentally and physically,” she added.
