Is there anything we can say about everyone's favourite, former Miss Universe, Sushmita Sen that no one has ever said before? Be it her immense courage to fight the societal norms and not letting it define her or her fierce attitude to live her life on her own terms, Sushmita, for her personal as well as professional life, has been an inspiration to everyone since forever. Sushmita had embraced motherhood for the first time, when she was just 25, by adopting an adorable girl, Renee. Sushmita welcomed her second daughter, her sunshine, Alisah into their lives in 2010.
Since Renee has already become a sensation on social media with the release of her short film, Suttabaazi, and her Instagram feed is loved and adored by everyone. Renee often interacts with her fans through 'Ask Me Anything' sessions on Instagram, in which she had spoken about her relationship status, upcoming projects and equation with her mother, Sushmita Sen and the Sen family. In one such session, when Renee was asked what's the best thing she has learned from her mom, Sushmita, she had retorted, "Being consistent, stay grounded and work hard."
Sushmita Sen often shares posts and stories on Instagram, dedicated to her little girls, Renee and Alisah. On May 27, 2021, Sushmita posted a glimpse of Alisah's impressive artwork as she made a rainbow in between the clouds. Sushmita then posted a bright and shining picture with her 'universe', Renee and Alisah, wrapped in her arms. Atop the mirror selfie with Renee and Alisah, Sushmita wrote, "My universe" along with a star emoji. Recently, Renee had also posted a mirror selfie in the same room, in which she flaunted her perfectly toned body. Dressed in a black athleisure with her hair tied in a bun and her sweatshirt is wrapped around her waist, Renee captioned the selfie as "Torn between (working out) and (pizza)."
"Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone, but still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute, you didn't grow under my heart but in it." - Fleur Conkling Heyliger. That's what Sushmita Sen had always said that though she is not the biological mother of her daughters, Renee Sen and Alisah Sen, she had given them birth from her heart. Did you know Sushmita had told her eldest daughter, Renee when she was 16 that after she turns 18, she can go to court to see the envelope which explains the names of her biological parents and go seek them out if she chooses to? But Renee doesn't want to know about her biological parents.
Renee Sen believes that 'adopted' and 'biological' are merely terms as she has never felt the difference and her mother, Sushmita Sen is 'everything' to her. In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Renee had spoken about the purest form of love for her and was quoted as saying, "I have seen love in its purest form. This difference between adopted and biological... There is no difference for me, it is only a term. I don't feel a difference." Expressing her desire to adopt someday, Renee had continued, "Of course I want to adopt. To me, adoption and biology are no different. It is just a term that people have given."
On being asked why she chose not to know about her biological parents, Renee Sen retorted, "I don't feel the need to. She (Sushmita) is my everything. I also understand that my 'biological’ parents may have had some circumstances or whatever but that is history. This is my family. This is who I am. Why should I kick all my blessings in the face? It does not make sense to me. I mean no disrespect to anybody who does want to know. By all means, please, if it makes you happy. But it does not make me happy."
We wish the Sen mother-daughter trio nothing but happiness and love in their lives!
