While most of her contemporaries are married and settled with kids, Sushmita Sen is still in the news for her relationships and break-ups. But the actress says she definitely has plans to tie the knot one day.
‘Well, I will get married. It was just that I didn’t feel like getting married at 23-24 which is considered to be marriageable age,’ said Sushmita, 34.
‘And I am tired of answering what kind of a man I want in my life. I will show you the full sample whenever it happens,’ she added.
In the past, the actress has dated actor Randeep Hooda, ad man Manav Menon and then she has been linked with Bunty Sachdev and very recently with Pakistani pacer Wasim Akram, with whom she has supposedly broken off with.
The ex-Miss Universe was in the capital Wednesday to attend the event for the real estate company Assotech where she was announced its brand ambassador. Dressed in a short and colourful ruffled dress, Sushmita looked radiant and exuded warmth.
Last year, Sushmita’s production company Tantra Entertainment was awarded the India franchise by the Miss Universe Organisation. But the winner, Ushoshi Sengupta, failed to win the title for India.
The beauty queen is not at all ‘disappointed’.
‘I wasn’t disappointed at all. We gave our best shot and there was a lot of learning for us as well. I also went to the pageant after 16 years (Sushmita won the title in 1994) and a lot has changed in terms of format.
‘So I had a look and understood the news things. This will help us in bringing the title back in the near future. Now, I feel like it is a challenge for me,’ she said.
Recently ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ actress Freida Pinto said Sushmita inspired her to act in the movies.
Commenting on that, she said: ‘I believe life has come a full circle for me. When I saw my baba (father) in tears when Rakesh Sharma went up in space and told Indira Gandhi ‘Saare Jahan Se Aacha Hindustan Hamaara’, I asked him for whom he was crying. He replied – he (Rakesh) is famous.’
‘At that time all I knew was to be famous. It was my only ambition in life and I wanted people, who didn’t even know me, to cry for me. So when people say such things about me, I feel life has come a full circle for me.
