According to Sushmita Sen, Nepotism won’t help you live long in the film industry. In the end, you will have to deliver or you will vanish unnoticed. Miss Universe 1994 cum Bollywood Veteran: Sushmita Sen was promoting her 1st ever web series: Aarya.
During her AMA session on Twitter, Web Series: Aarya lead: Sushmita Sen was asked about how she survived nepotism in Bollywood all these years. And Sush’s answer will win your heart.
Bollywood diva Sushmita Sen very recently ended her sabbatical from work as she made her web series debut with Aarya. The series was received well both by the critics and her fans alike. During a recent ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on her Twitter account, this Sunday, Sushmita answered all the questions that her fans asked her about her life and career choices.
When all of a sudden, inspired by the ongoing nepotism debate, one of the fans asked Sushmita about her inspirations, fears, and also her views about the subject. This fan questioned Sushmita,
“How did you survive Nepotism in Bollywood ??”
“By focusing on my Audience…YOU GUYS!!! I will continue to work as an actor as long as YOU want to see me!! #simpleenough #AskAarya”
The nepotism debate was reignited in Bollywood after Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14. Investigations in the case are still ongoing. For the unaware, Sushmita has crowned Miss India and then Miss Universe in 1994 after which she made her Bollywood debut in 1996 with Dastak.
Aarya made its OTT debut on Disney+ Hotstar on June 19th. The DNA review of the show read
, “Aarya is slow and slightly predictable but Sushmita’s luminous presence and beautiful performances make those one-hour episodes acceptable and watchable. She will remind of Samay: When Time Strikes her 2003 films wherein she played the role of a tough cop. She is shown as a mother to her three kids, who themselves go through a different journey and are forgiven instantly. Aarya is watchable but predictable. The show is an official adaptation of Dutch series titled Penoza which I haven’t watched or heard before.”
