In 1994 at the age of eighteen, Sushmita won the title of Miss India (beating out Aishwarya Rai). Later that year, she became the first Indian Miss Universe in the Miss Universe Pageant held in the Philippines. She then started working as an actress.
Her first movie, Ratchakan in Tamil, was quite a moderate hit. However, movies like Dastak in 1996, where she played the victim of a stalker, didn’t do well at the cinema, but her appearance as Rupali in David Dhawan’s movie Biwi No. 1 won her the Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award in 1999. So far, her biggest hit has been the 2004 movie Main Hoon Na, in which she starred as Shah Rukh Khan’s love interest. Later on, she played a lawyer in Main Aisa Hi Hoon opposite Ajay Devgan. In 2005, she also starred in a remake of Cactus Flower, called Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya: Sen played the lead opposite Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif and essayed the role of Ingrid Bergman. Her most recent movies include Chingaari (2005) as a prostitute, Gulel (2006) and Karma, Confessions and Holi (2006) opposite Drena DeNiro and Naomi Campbell.
Sushmita’s defence background, ensured that she led a nomadic life. Her mother’s decision to shift base to Delhi, was to render some permanency in her children’s lives, as also to enable her children have proper education. With an advantageous height, she made her entry into the world of fashion. She did a few fashion shows before she went in for the Femina Miss India pageant. Her decision to join movies was well accepted and Bollywood welcomed her with open arms. She made her debut in ‘Dastak’. The film was a dud at the box office. Soon another flop ‘Zor’ followed. Things were not going right for her. She was dubbed too westernized, too tall for Indian heroes. But Sushmita has accepted it all with a pinch of salt. The success of Biwi No.1 along with her dance number in Sirf Tum, Fiza and Kyonki… Main Jhooth Nahi Bolta changed her equation in Bollywood. She has got very rave reviews for convincing portrayal of her character in the film Filhaal. On a personal front, Sushmita is a charmer, an easygoing person who loves writing poetry. She has adopted a baby girl whom she has named Renee. Renee was apparently a sick and unhealthy baby when Sushmita decided to adopt her. Life for Sush has changed ever since. She supposedly is said to have changed her habits, so that they would not influence the child as she grows. This ex-Miss Universe remains a much sought after woman today and the common man’s ultimate dream and fantasy.
