Holy Moly! Sushmita Sen Reveals The Reason Behind Not Getting Roles In Bollywood And It’s Shocking
Sushmita Sen’s candid attitude is just one of the few reasons we admire her. From talking about becoming a mother at 24 to being open about her love life, Sushmita’s honesty is refreshing AF. During a recent interview, the actress even shared the reason behind taking a decade long break from acting and it’s quite surprising.
Sushmita did a romantic comedy, Dulha Mil Gaya in 2010 before going on a break. She then made a comeback with her web series, Aarya in 2020 and blew us away with her acting skills. Shedding light on the hiatus, the actress shared, “I think the 10-year break set the priorities in order. It told me what I need to do and what not to do. Mainstream cinema wasn’t giving me what I wanted.” She further added that a lot of it had to do with a preconceived notion of her age.
Sushmita also shockingly revealed that she missed out on opportunities due to her reluctance to network with people. She said, “I don’t know what the mindset was or maybe I was not putting myself out there. I have never been good at that. I am no good at networking. It did not work for me.”
That’s not all, during another interview, the actress spilled the beans on enjoying doing item numbers. “I’m very proud of the fact that at a time when they would say ‘Item number? Main lead actors, actress item number nhi karte hai, reputation kharab hojayega. And I’m like mujhe lelo,’” she elaborated. She even mentioned that two of her managers left her because they thought she was crazy to be doing item songs and destroying her career over it.
Well, isn’t she just fabulous? We’re so proud of her for keeping it real and here’s hoping she never stops inspiring us. More power to you, Sush!
