Personal Life



Sen was born on 19 November, 1975 in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. She is a single mother of two adopted daughters, Renee and Alisah.

Career



Sushmita Sen's debut film in Bollywood was "Dastak", where she played the role of Miss Universe who was being chased by a psycho, played by Sharad Kapoor. The film bombed followed by another flop, "Zor" at the box office. Her comic role in David Dhawan's "Biwi No.1" gave her recognition in the film industry.

Later, she performed a romantic role in "Bus Itna Sa Khwab Hai" opposite Abhishek Bachchan. Even this movie couldn't do well at the box office. In Meghna Gulzar's first film as a director "Filhaal", Sushmita Sen did a very sentimental and realistic role of Sia. The role of Sia was that of a modern and independent girl who lends her womb to conceive her friend's child.

This woman oriented, unconventional role won her rave reviews from critics. In 2003, she won the Zee Cine Popular Award Best Actress in a Supporting Role for same film. She performed in songs like Mehboob Mere (Fiza) and Dilbar Dilbar (Sirf Tum) which became very popular. Until today, Main Hoon Na remains the biggest hit of Sushmita Sen, in which she starred opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
