The world fell in love with Sushmita Sen when she won the Miss Universe in 1994. Once again, the 41-year-old beauty generated some buzz after she became one of the judges in the recent Miss Universe pageant held in the Philippines. Sen’s controversial personal life intrigued the world, but she remained honest about her escapades.
Sushmita Sen and Her Early Life
She was born on November 19, 1975. She was raised in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. Her birth name is Sushmita Shubeer Sen. She completed her education at the Air Force Golden Jubilee Institute and Air Force Silver School in Delhi. She took a degree in Journalism and English in college. She did a couple of fashion shows during her college days. In 1996, she entered the Bollywood world through the film Dastak.
The Beauty Queen Raised Two Daughters
In 2000, she adopted an infant and named her as Renee. She was only 25 at the time of Renee’s adoption. It was not socially acceptable to obtain the guardianship at that age. The High Court of Bombay denied the case. In January 2010, she adopted a three-month-old baby girl and named her Alisah.
Sushmita Sen’s Relationships and Ex-Boyfriends
Sen never denied her relationships in front of the media. She was in a relationship with hotelier Ritik Bhasin, who owns a couple of bars in Mumbai. In 2015, Bollywoodmantra reported that the couple broke up. The following year, it looked like the two rekindled their relationship after they were seen on a date.
Before Bhasin, Sen had relationships with nine men. Actor Vikram Bhatt and Sen fell in love with each other while shooting Dastak. Vikram was also ready to leave his wife for the beauty queen but things did not work out for the pair.
Sen also dated one of the most popular cricket players, Wasim Akram, but their affair failed. Mudassar Aziz was close to Sen’s child, Renee. Sadly, Aziz and Sushmita’s relationship also ended. Businessman Imtiaz Khatri’s name was also linked to the Indian actress, but their relationship was very short. Apparently, Sushmita was in a serious relationship with Manav Menon, but they did not last long as well.
Moreover, Sen faced controversy because of her engagement with hotelier Sanjay Narang. Sen backed out of their relationship. The head of Hotmail.com, Sabir Bhatia, gave the beauty queen a diamond ring of 10.5 carats. Nonetheless, Sen said that she was only friends with Bhatia. Dating Bunty Sachdeva was the most scandalous due to the reports that he cheated on Sen.
Recently, Sen made waves after the media spotted her on a date with a 20-year-old during a celebration. According to BollywoodLife, she participated in the 50th birthday of fashion designer Manish Malhotra. The beauty queen did not address the rumors, but there were speculations the 20-year-old was just her escort during the event.
Sushmita Sen Having a Hard Time Looking for the Right Man
In 2015, Hindustan Times reported that Sen said that she is prepared for marriage. Her children, Renée and Alisah, have no problems with the idea of their mother’s marriage. The star stated that discovering Mr. Right is often where the trouble arises. Wedding bells will not be ringing for the stunning Indian beauty any time soon.
