The winner of the Miss Universe pageant 1994, Sushmita Sen is celebrating her 45th birthday today. The model turned actress has worked primarily in Hindi films throughout her career but she also turned her interest in working in regional films also.
In her 24 years long filmy career she appeared in more than 35 films. She made her acting debut with the 1996 movie Dastak, where she played the role of Miss Universe. Later in 1997, she ventured into Tamil cinema with Praveen Gandhi’s romantic action film Ratchagan.
Her first notable work came in the form of Rupali Walia from the 1999 movie ‘Biwi No.1′ directed by David Dhawan. She bagged four best supporting actress awards for her role. Later she starred in some very underwhelming films as well as in some highly appreciable films like Aankhen(2002), Samay: When Time Strikes(2003) and Main Hoon Na(2004).
In all these years, she was only given the supporting roles. In very few films she has been casted as a leading lady. After the 2010 movie ‘No Problem‘ she only starred in one Bengali film ‘Nirbaak‘ until this year, when she stepped into the world of web shows. With Aarya, she showed everyone what’s she is really capable of doing if provided the right material.
For the first time in her career, Sushmita Sen has received more comments on her acting performance rather than her looks. She totally nailed the role of Aarya with her versatility. This Hotstar Special is now one of the best rated Indian shows on the internet. One true fan of Sushmita Sen will definitely agree that with Aarya, the actress has begun her second innings in the industry.
As a movie lover, we can only wish her to see in more and more such projects. Her capabilities are limitless, she just need some fresh new scripts where she won’t be restricted to do one thing.
Even at the age of 45, her body flexibility is comparatively very good. Seeing her recent works, we think she will fit best in some action stuff. Whatever it is, happy birthday Sushmita ji, have a great year ahead.
