I LOVE Sushmita Sen. She’s one actress I absolutely adore. She’s smart, elegant, articulate, warm, witty… I can go on and on. Plus, we have that Bong connection, you see! :) I have met her a few times and every time I meet her, I love her a little more and somehow she always looks prettier. Last year, the beautiful actress turned 40 and when I had asked her about it a few months prior to her birthday, she had said:
I can’t wait to be 40. I have an image of how I’ll look and who I’d be at 40. I want to be the poster girl who youngsters see and say, “Mama, I’m 20 now but when will I be 40?” At 40, I have this picture of me for which I am now starting to train for, because by November I want to see myself in a bikini!
And guess what? Yesterday, she posted this on Instagram.
