Can Sushmita Sen regain her stardom?

Can Sushmita Sen regain her stardom?

Sushmita Sen was considered as one of the most glamourous actresses of bollywood films in the 90s along with Aishwarya Rai. As both of them got international recognition with their success in the fashion industry producers and directors used their glamour in films made during the contemporary period. But with increase of age and domination of new actresses like Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Kareena Kapoor, the charm that was created by Sushmita Sen is fading away gradually.

In Bibi No. 1, her stylish performance opposite Salman Khan contributed for the success of the film. She proved herself to be a successful girlfriend but failed to fulfil any of the responsibilities of a wife. Salman Khan returned back to his wife Karishma Kapoor after realizing about the incapability of Sushmita Sen. Although apparently Sushmita’s role appeared to be negative but her presentation of the character with the stylish andaz attracted the film audience. The lips in the songs “ishq sona hai” and “chunari chunari”, was very impressive.

In the film Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya, she almost superseded Katrina Kaif, in her role opposite Salman Khan. Where the viewers saw that Salman Khan was inclined to marry Katrina, who was a model in the film at the cost of Sushmita Sen, who was his personal secretary, at the end of the film the sacrifices of Sushmita Sen brought her the maximum sympathy from the audience. Her lips in the song “laga laga laga re” were very impressive. The striking factor in the film was that all her emotions were expressed through comedy sequences.

Sushmita Sen was also impressive in the film Tumko Na Bhool Payenge opposite Salman Khan. Although she was associated with Salman Khan only in one part of the film while the major portion was there with Diya Mirza, her performance was probably more aggressive than Diya Mirza. Her lips in the song “are re re yeh kya hua re” were very impressive. She was sublime in the film Zor opposite Sunny Deol and Mai Hoon Na opposite Shahrukh Khan.

Sushmita Sen is also known for her bold performances in the industry. She accepted the role in the film Chingari, which many actresses of her age would not have accepted. She also was sublime inn Sunil Shetty’s film Aghaaz.

Sushmita has a long way to go. Viewers are very anxious to see her performance in the role of Benazir Bhutto, the film which is facing hurdles relating to production. The biggest challenge is in respect of bringing her lost stardom which she enjoyed back in the 90s.
