Mumbai: Neena Gupta, who had been missing from the acting front in recent times, will be seen in Manish Tiwary's upcoming film Issaq, starring Prateik Babbar and newcomer Amyra Dastur.

The veteran actress was last seen in the TV show Dil Se Diya Vachan almost two years ago. On the big screen, she featured in Salman Khan starrer Veer.

Neena is essaying a mother figure to Amyra’s character in Issaq.

“You don’t have to discover her again. She’s a fabulous actress. We approached her and I was lucky to have her in the cast,” Tiwary said.

To add to her screen presence, Neena had special paan-stained dentures made for the film. “The story has a Benares setting and her character loves to eat paan. To make her teeth look stained, it was her idea to get dentures made to add to her persona.”

Neena, who is presently abroad, is slated to be back in Mumbai by the weekend.
