Sushmita Sen – the charishmatic actress of bollywood.
Sushmita Sen had shown her charishma from the time she had joined bollywood films after being successful in beauty contests. She played the role of the westernised girl in Bibi No. 1 opposite Salman Khan. Salman already had a wife played by Karishma Kapoor. He went to Switzerland on official tour and then married Susmita with the false impression that he was unmarried. Anil Kapoor and Tabu helped Karishma to get back her husband after creating disharmony in the life of Salman and Sushmita. Everything was picturised with comedy sequences and the film was very successful with songs like “ishq sona hai”, “chunari chunari”. The song “chunari chunari” was also used in the film Monsoon Wedding.
Sushmita had done very well in the film Zor, opposite Sunny Deol, where he had to unearth the evil deeds done by Om Puri and Mohan Agase who had very good public image. Although it was an action film but Sushmita had done her part very well. She also played the role of a lady police officer in Aghaaz, opposite Sunil Shetty. She brought out the personality that was required in the role.
She also did well in the film Tumko Na Bhool Payenge, opposite Salmaan Khan, where she loved him and then he was shot and he lost his memory. He was used by the ministry to kill terrorists as he had good aim and then his friend who was also a shooter, had fired at him and married Susmita. When Salman recovered he got involved with Diya Mirza and returned back to his old place to unearth the truth. Susmita had given adequate dance performance in the song “are re re yeh kya hua re”.
She also played the role of a tawaif in Kalpana Lajmi’s film Chingari, where it was shown that the circumstances existing in the society compels women to join the profession. Mithun Chakravarty played the role of a dishonest priest who was a shame for the society. Sushmita’s other films include Main Hoon Na, opposite Shahrukh Khan, Fiza, opposite Hrithik Roshan where she presented an item number in a serious film.
Over the years she had shown that she has the potentiality to act in every type of role, and in case she gets good scripts she can provide expression for the characters. Viewers expect quality performance from her in future.
