A few days ago, a video of Sushmita Sen had gone viral in which she revealed some details about how she didn’t have enough money to buy designer clothes for Miss India pageant.
She said in the interview, “We did not have so much money to afford designer gowns on stage; we were supposed to wear four different costumes. We are middle-class people and we knew our restrictions. My mother said, ‘So what? They are not going to look at your clothes, they are going to look at you.’ So we went to shop at Sarojini Nagar market (a flea market in Delhi). Downstairs, in the garage, there was a local tailor who made petticoats. We gave him the material and told him, ‘This will come on TV, so do a good job.’ He made my winning gown out of that fabric, and my mother made a rose out of the remaining fabric.”
After her victory in Miss Universe Pageant, she stepped in Bollywood and did films like Fiza, Biwi No. 1, Main Hoon Na, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kia.
She then took a break from Bollywood to raise her daughters. However, after they are grown up now, she is planning to make a comeback soon.
