The admirers of Sushmita Sen have come to realize how much they have missed her during her eight-year break ever since she made a comeback with Aarya in 2020. She has commercial successes like Biwi No. 1, Main Hoon Na, and Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, but she has also impressed audiences with her acting abilities in films like Filhaal, Samay, and Aankhen. In the most recent episode of Taali, the former Miss Universe played transgender activist Shreegauri Sawant.
Recently, Sushmita talked about taking a long leave from her job since she was unable to appease the industry’s egos. We asked her to select whether she has more chemistry with Salman Khan or Shah Rukh Khan while she was answering some amusing questions about her life and work.
She replied, “Very different chemistries,” adding with a loud laugh “I taught one [of them] chemistry.” In the movie Main Hoon Na, Sushmita plays a chemistry instructor with Shah Rukh Khan. Salman and she performed on Biwi No 1.
“With Salman, I felt a closer chemistry. It had a gunda, buddies vibe about it. It was romance when I was dating Shah Rukh,” she stated.
We asked Sushmita Sen who she would like to work with once more. Both darling, she replied with a smile. Never let it come to one of them or the other. “Always both.”
Sushmita Sen discusses her comeback
Given that Aarya (2020), Sushmita Sen’s homecoming show, was her debut solo performance without a male star, we questioned her about whether she had any idea that it would go on to shatter all records. She said, flashing her big smile, “Aarya has been a manifestation of what I’ve been waiting for during the eight-year break.” She also explained why she chose the program over the other two Bafta-winning remakes that other platforms had to offer.
“I knew it would be aap ye yeh role kar lo, woh kar lo (you do this role and that part) when I returned to work. And having a strong willpower is necessary for saying no. You have to refuse, putting aside your reservations, according to Mann maar ke kehna ke yeh nahi karna. When I return, I’ll do it with a sense of responsibility; I want to be the star of a production and play a supporting role. It must be a sturdy object. You say I will prepare for that for three months, attend workshops, and unlearn. With Aarya, I finally received what I had been hoping for. I contacted three large platforms, and they responded with fantastic programs. Aarya had a resounding victory. It was a deadly mix because of the writing and Ram Madhvani’s addition, she said.
