    “Renee Is Not Adopted,” says Sushmita Sen

    [Interview by Faridoon Shahryar]
    Saturday, October 07, 2006
    “I have an adopted son in the film, but my daughter Renee is not adopted,” says Sushmita Sen defiantly. Well, she is a true rock star who loves to do things on her terms and conditions and when she says something she means from the heart. The former Miss Universe remains a hot property in the glamour industry in spite of not having had big Bollywood success coming her way, except for SRK’s ‘Main Hoon Na’ or Salman Khan’s ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya’. She is all over the place right now excitedly promoting her new movie ‘Zindaggi Rocks’ which has a close resemblance to her life in more ways than. IndiaGlitz brings you this exclusive interview with the ultimate Diva with a million watt smile:

    What makes you such a Rockstar?

    Thank you! The fact that I believe in that concept. I believe that you can be a rock star without a stage, a mike, a guitar and music. It’s just the way you live your life on your own terms….Then you are a rockstar.

    ‘Zindaggi Rocks’ seems to be a slice of your own life…

    It is easy to get into a character than being yourself. It’s a state of being shamelessly uninhibited to let yourself show. But when your director and unit makes you so comfortable, everything changes. I did feel I was Kria.

    How closely are you associated with this film?

    This film is the way I look at life. As Sushmita Sen, it is true celebration of life where your life is not about living your life to the fullest, but the time when you may not be a rockstar the celebration must go on. When Tanuja narrated the story to me, I said when are we starting this film! I must have hugged producer Anuradha Prasad fifty times.

    A lot of female bonding seems to be happening…Both director as well as the producer are women…

    O totally…Shamelessly so…Sure…It’s a full on female bonding film.

    You have an adopted son in the movie…How close was it to your own life

    (Firmly but with a smile) I have an adopted son in the film, but my daughter Renee is not adopted…

    How was the whole experience?

    Zindaggi Rocks man…It’s an alive film. It’s gonna rock your world in more ways than one. It’s got tremendous music, lots of life. It’s not a frivolous film. Lot of life in the film. It’s a fabulous film. A soulful film.

    Your favourite song in the film…

    That would be tough…I have quite a few since I have performed to them. ‘Zindaggi Rocks’ the title track is very rocking…I enjoyed it so much that I had a sprain in the neck while performing. Rabbi is rocking…Sufi music appeals to me a lot. ‘Humko Choone Paas Aaiye’ is the seductive song…Very much like Kria. One moment she is seductive. One moment she is like a child. One moment she is a woman. One moment she is alive. One moment she is dead.

    You dedicated ‘Chingaari’ to Maa Durga…Whom would you dedicate ‘Zindaggi Rocks to’

    I dedicate this one to life…

    One thing that changed your life after ‘Zindaggi Rocks’

    Without telling you the script…After this film, I’ve had my rebirth…Where the film ends…Sushmita is reborn

    Something about your co-star Shiney Ahuja…

    I must say this…That any actor other Shiney Ahuja in this role wouldn’t have managed to give such a fine performance. He is such an amazing actor. God bless him. Every time I’ve watched this film my heart has ached for him. He is a newcomer in the industry but I can safely say that everyone must watch out for him….Yeh Bahut Lambi Race Ka Ghoda Hai…
