When you have the radiant Sushmita Sen as your mother, it’s a given that the glitz and glam of tinsel town will beckon you sooner or later. Sushmita Sen’s eldest daughter Renee too has expressed her desire to follow her illustrious mother’s footsteps into the industry.
Renee, who was adopted by Sushmita while the latter was only 25 will turn 16 in September and has harboured the desire to be an actress ever since she was two, reveals Sushmita.
However, the protective mother Sushmita will not allow Renee to don her acting shoes before completing her studies.
“I will not encourage her to do anything in life that she doesn’t want to. But I just have one condition and that is she should complete her education before deciding what she wants to do. I had just passed my 12th and immediately entered Miss India. Although God has been very kind to me, it took 10 years for me to stand on my own feet and think independently that I can do this. When I used to see others with PhDs and Masters and having graduated out of big Universities in which ironically I have now delivered lectures, I used to feel bad about not having completed my studies. So it’s is my desire that my children should get a good degree, ” said Sushmita Sen at the launch of her TV reality show.
“They don’t have to be Masters or Phd holders. So when Renee joins the film industry, she wouldn’t have to say that I don’t know anything else other than acting, added Sushmita.
Sushmita Sen also has another daughter Alisah.
