Neena Gupta was denied access to the reserved lounge at Bareilly (Uttar Pradesh) airport recently. The actor shared a reel from the airport to inform her fans and followers. Giving a tour of the reserved lounge from outside, Neena Gupta said in the video, “I was not permitted to sit at the reserved lounge. I thought, reserved lounge is meant for VIPs. I thought I am a VIP but unfortunately, I haven’t attained the status yet. I will have to work hard to become a VIP. I will work hard for sure. Thank you so much.” Neena Gupta’s reel created a stir on social media. Her post was flooded with comments. A user wrote, “This VIP culture has to go if we want to move ahead…Do “important” people in so called “developed” world feel ashamed of staying in queue in public places?” Another user wrote, “Kya jarurat hai uss place ke and er beithne ki aap jahan beithe ho wahi VIP area baan Jayega maam. For us you are VIP so chill much love neena maam. (Why do you need to sit at that place? Wherever you sit, that area becomes VIP zone.)” Another comment read, “Koi nai madam sab ek hi hai kya aam or kya khaas ,sab bhagwan ki nazar mai samaan hai. Be grounded and appreciate what u have. (In God’s eyes, all are same. There’s nothing to feel special about).”
