Diary of a Wimpy Kid Wiki

Mr. Gupta is the father of Chirag Gupta and the husband of Mrs. Gupta who first appeared in the online book. He is shown to be quite tall with glasses and a mustache and is somewhat similar in appearance to Dr. Salazar Kagan.


Rodrick Rules[]

He calls Susan Heffley and tells her that Greg was the ringleader of the invisible Chirag joke. As a result, Susan drives to Mr. Gupta's house and forces Greg to apologize to Chirag Gupta. [1]

No Brainer[]

At the PTA auction, Mr. Gupta bids three bucks to eat lunch with a janitor due to nobody else raising up their paddle.[2]

Rodrick Rules (2011 film)[]

Fregley asks Chirag if his dad could bring back a cobra, so he could dance with it. He would make an appearance in Plainview's Most Talented sitting above Susan. [3]


In the online version, he is shown to be quite rich, as he even let Chirag have a going away party with his classmates, which according to Greg was quite splendid, as he received video games, a whoopee cushion, x-ray goggles, candy and many other things at the party.[4]

But Chirag was back at school a few days later since Mr. Gupta decided to not take that job in California.[5]


  • Given what's said about Chirag in Cabin Fever, it is known that Mr. Gupta's family does not celebrate Christmas and their religion is most probably Hinduism.
  • Mr. Gupta has a very different appearance in No Brainer compared to Rodrick Rules, appearing as a thin man with a round head and combed hair, whereas he was much larger and bald originally. It is unclear why this change occurred, though it may be a mistake on Jeff Kinney's part, or purely coincidental.
