Television actress, Charu Asopa had tied the knot with Sushmita Sen's brother, Rajeev Sen and together they are parents to an adorable daughter, Ziana Sen. It was on November 1, 2021, when Charu and Rajeev had embraced parenthood for the first time with the arrival of their little princess into their world. Since then, the doting parents have been sharing every minute thing from Ziana's growing period on their respective social media handles.
Ziana Sen is not only loved by her parents, Charu Asopa and Rajeev Sen, but she is also an ankhon ka tara of her bua, Sushmita Sen. It was after Ziana's birth, when Sushmita had shared a post on her IG handle to announce the arrival of the new member in the Sen family. In the picture, we could see the actress wearing a blue co-ord set, a face mask, and a headcover reportedly, her labour room costume. Alongside it, Sushmita had expressed her joy of being a bua, and had penned:
"Lakshmi arrives just before Diwali!! IT'S A GIRL! Congratulations @asopacharu & @rajeevsen9 …what a beauty she is! Became a bua this morning. Not allowed to share baby pictures yet, so sharing mine from just before Charu delivered our little Angel. I was blessed to witness it. Thank you Doctor @rishmapai for making this such a beautiful & peaceful experience!! You're just the BEST. CONGRATULATIONS to Asopa & Sen family, 3 grandchildren, all girls!"
A few hours ago, Sushmita Sen shared a series of pictures with her niece, Zianna Sen. In the pictures, we can see Sushmita and Zianna in a complete playful mood, wherein a few glimpses, the little munchkin was seen sitting on her bua's shoulder. Zianna was wearing a white cotton dress and looked cute as a button, and her bua looked stunning in a black-coloured top. Along with this, Sushmita mentioned her niece as 'VIP Mehamaan' and cited that the little kid is possibly here to wish her a happy 28 years of Miss Universe. Further, she made a cutesy promise to Zianna's parents, Rajeev Sen and Charu Asopa. Sushmita's note can be read as:
"#buakijaan #VIPMehamaan Ziana Sen comes home to wish her ‘Sexy’ a happy 28 yrs of Miss Universe!!! I promise you this romance has only just begun @asopacharu @rajeevsen9. Thank you all for the warmest, most loving wishes…I celebrated the day with family, friends & all of you!!! #blessed.

In April 2022, Charu Asopa and Rajeev Sen had celebrated their daughter, Ziana's annaprashan (rice ceremony in Bengali), wherein the baby's uncle (mama) feeds the first rice to the baby after having a puja. And Ziana's parents had documented the whole function and had uploaded it as a Vlog on Charu's YouTube channel. In the video, Charu had shown a small silver bowl, glass, and a spoon that had come as a gift from Ziana's bua, Sushmita Sen. The silverware had a customised detailing where it was written 'Bua Ki Jaan', and this had simply proven Sushmita's love for Zianna. Check out:
In an interview with The Times of India, Charu had shared that her family had supported her a lot on her delivery day. She had mentioned that it was her husband, Rajeev and her sister-in-law, Sushmita who were with her inside the delivery room during her surgery. She had said:
"When I went inside the operation theatre my husband and sister-in-law Sushmita didi were there inside with me. I was not conscious but I could hear them and they were happy. In fact, when I was leaving for the surgery they were cheering me up and cracking jokes and making the atmosphere so light. I was scared and nervous but just looking at them I went inside with a smile on my face. They were inside also celebrating Ziana's birth."
Sushmita Sen and her bhanji, Ziana Sen's pictures are too adorable to miss!
