Just like a flower is a bud before it blooms, everything in life has a sequence. Watching your children grow is no different as one day, you’re holding the little one in your arms for the first time and soon the day comes when they leave your hand and run here and there. In no time comes a day when they go to school and then college to make a life on their own. For a parent, there’s no prouder and joyous moment than witnessing their little ones grow into wonderful human beings. The growth of a child is also the growth of a parent. Sushmita Sen is on cloud nine as her not-so-little-baby-girl anymore, Renee is all set to shine as she made her acting debut with a short film.

Did you know Sushmita Sen had told her 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? In an interview with Rajeev Masand, Sushmita had elaborated on the details and was quoted as saying, “I told her that we don't know if they have a biological parents name in there right but there is information in that envelope which is only rightfully yours after you turn 18, right, so I didn't want to give her the wrong information because I don't want her to go there and get her heart broken because they don't have that information about a lot of kids. But I told her 'I'll take you whenever you're ready we must go' and we get it so she said ‘but why do you want me to go find out’, so I said, ‘I am saying you have a right, now that you are an adult to go if you want to go, I'll take you.' So, she gave it a bit like a moment's pause and said, 'Honestly, no I don't want to find out.' I told her, ‘If you do let me know.’” (Also Read: Sushmita Sen Talks About Falling In Love With Rohman Shawl And His Equation With Renee And Alisah)
