Sushmita Sen is a lady to look up to when it comes to taking inspiration from her. Not just because of the fact that she is the winner of the Miss Universe crown or because of her accomplishments in the film industry, but also due to her personal life. For the uninitiated, the actress had adopted a baby girl, much before it was cool for a single woman to take such a bold step.
Sushmita Sen's elder daughter, Renee Sen was adopted by her in the year 2000. In 2010, the Main Hoon Na actress had adopted her younger daughter, Alisah in 2012. In fact, Sushmita is so open as a mother that when Renee was 16, Sushmita had told her that after she turns 18, she could go to court to see the envelope which has the names of her biological parents and had given her the full freedom to seek them out if she chooses to. However, Renee didn't want to know about her biological parents.
In an interview with the Hello! Magazine, Sushmita Sen and her elder daughter, Renee Sen spilt the beans on the bond they share with each other. Renee also shared how it feels to be the daughter of Miss Universe. She said, ''Being my mother’s daughter is a privilege. But there are expectations I have for myself. Having my own identity is important. I am not trying to fill her shoes—I want to wear my own shoes and carve out my own path.''
On the other hand, Sushmita Sen also talked about the fact that parenthood isn't as easy as it looks and comes with its own set of pros and cons. She told the publication, ''It’s not all as romantic and beautiful as they say… Being a parent is a beautiful combination of being a student and a teacher. It’s about learning and unlearning and both teaching your child and learning as a parent, too”.
On September 4, 2021, Renee Sen had turned a year older and her doting mommy, Sushmita Sen had taken to her IG handle to pen a heartmelting birthday wish for her dearest daughter on her 22nd birthday. Sharing two pictures of Renee, Sushmita had written, ''#faceoflove Happpyyyyyy Birthday my first love @reneesen47 We are 22…how time flies!!! Two decades of being YOUR Maa…what an avalanche of blessings indeed!!! May God always bless you with his best…May you manifest all that your beautiful heart desires!!!''
Sushmita Sen is very close to her daughters, Renee and Alisah, and her Insta handle is a proof of the same, and she often shares a sneak-peek into her personal life. On May 27, 2021, Sushmita had posted a bright and shining picture with her 'universe', Renee and Alisah, wrapped in her arms. Atop the mirror selfie, Sushmita had written, "My universe" along with a star emoticon.
On the work front, Sushmita Sen will be next seen in Aarya season 2 and Renee has made her debut with the movie, Suttabaazi.
