After this revelation, Sushmita shared that Rajat Tara was her first boyfriend. She tagged him as an ‘important man’ in his life, and reminisced about the time when she had to shift to Mumbai to train for Miss Universe. She credited Rajat for being there for her in Mumbai while she was training for the pageant. She said:

“Aapko main ek bohot zaroori baat batana chahti hun. He is my first boyfriend, Rajat. Such an important man kyunki jab main Miss India jeeti aur mujhe Miss Universe ke liye train karne ke liye Bombay aana pada, toh Bombay mere liye ek bohot hi foreign sheher tha kyunki main Delhi mein badi huyi hun, wahan pe rone lagi Delhi mein ke mujhe nahi jana Bombay, mujhe nahi jana Miss Universe, akele akele nahi karna.” 

Sushmita Sen said that Rajat Tara left his job to be with her in Mumbai

Sushmita Sen further revealed that her first boyfriend left his job for her. She said that back then he used to work for Benetton and had asked for a month’s leave. Unfortunately, he was fired from his workplace. Then Rajat came to Mumbai with the actress and was with her during the entirety of her training in the city. She said:

“Toh he was working for Benetton uss waqt, toh Rajat ne uss waqt kaha ki ye toh manegi nahi aunty, mumma se baat huyi aur inhone jaake Benetton mein bol diya ki ya toh aap mujhe ek mahne ki chutti de do ya phir jo aapko thik lage, inko kaam se nikal diya. Rajat hai very massively responsible jinke support ke bagair main ek mahine Bombaby mein nahi guzar sakti thi.”
