Sushmita Sen has always been forthright in calling a spade a spade. Whether it’s her opinion on item numbers or her determination to live life on her terms, the former Miss Universe has never been afraid to make a statement. Sushmita Sen recently revealed that she took a ten-year break from filmmaking. The online series “Aarya” is Sushmita Sen’s most recent acting effort.
According to The Indian Express, Sushmita Sen said, “I believe the ten-year sabbatical reorganized our priorities.” It advised me on what I should do and what I should avoid. The mainstream films were unable to provide me with what I wanted. Much of it was preconceived notions about my age, my screen age, and the fact that I had been unemployed for 10 years. “
“I’m not sure what my thinking was, or if I wasn’t putting myself out there,“ she said. That is something I have never been adept at. I am not a natural at networking. It was not effective for me. “
Sushmita Sen discusses the importance of item numbers.
Previously, in an interview with Film Companion, Sushmita Sen remembered old-fashioned film set talks. Sushmita Sen previously said, “I’m quite pleased of the fact that at a period when they would say, ‘Item number? Lead actors avoid item numbers; it is detrimental to their reputation. And I was constantly saying, “Take me.” I’ve had two supervisors quit me as a result of their behavior at that moment. They’d remark, “‘She’s insane; she’s agreeing to sing an item song when you’re trying to cast her in a feature picture.'” “Music is music,” she said, “and it will survive even a lousy picture.”
Concerning the implications of defying your boss’s recommendations, she said, “Back in the day, if you said no to your manager about anything or said, ‘You think this is a horrible idea, but I still want to do it,’ they would get outraged and say, ‘We are irrelevant. We have been in the sector for a long period and understand how to achieve this“
Sushmita Sen was most recently featured in Ram Madhvani’s web series Aarya 2. She played Aarya Sareen, a mother who fights a dark world of crime and enemies who want to destroy her home and kids.
