My kids have the same mind­set as me. We are open to life and what­ever it brings... get­ting mar­ried won’t be a prob­lem

Sush­mita Sen, ac­tor

Sush­mita Sen says that it’s not just her, but also her two daugh­ters, Re­nee (15) and Alisah (5), who are ready to see her mar­ried. “My kids have the same mind­set as me. We are open to life and what­ever it brings. That is the way I have raised them. So, get­ting mar­ried will not be a prob­lem be­cause they are ready for it. How­ever, find­ing the right man is,” says the 39-year-old ac­tor.

Mean­while, Sush­mita, who will be seen judg­ing a com­edy show soon, says that she has al­ways made a con­scious ef­fort to keep her daugh­ters away from the lime­light. “I never bring my younger daugh­ter Alisah on the sets of my film or any­thing,” she says. In fact, Sush­mita who adopted both her daugh­ters, says that her ef­fort has al­ways been to give her kids a nor­mal up­bring­ing. “The mind­set is to take them out to the gro­cery shop, to the park and into a nor­mal en­vi­ron­ment and not to force upon them what I do. It’s all about teach­ing my chil­dren at a very young age to iden­tify with peo­ple, with who they are and not what they do. Be­ing an ac­tor is a pro­fes­sion, be­ing fa­mous is what you do, it is not who you are,” she says.

How­ever, the kids seem to like showbiz al­ready. “I wanted to keep her away from it (showbiz) for as long as pos­si­ble. But I brought her on the sets of this (com­edy) show and as ex­pected, she was on the mike telling me what to do, you didn’t need a di­rec­tor and cin­e­matog­ra­pher while she was there. I had to go back to be­ing mom and send her back to school. But both my daugh­ters have enough tal­ent, they just have to chan­nelise it well,” she says.

Re­nee, says Sush­mita, has al­ready made it clear that she wants to en­ter the film in­dus­try just like her mother. “She can’t wait to get done with school and then be on the set. She is very clear about that. But I have a deal with her. She can do any­thing with her life as long as she has a col­lege de­gree. She is very en­am­oured (with this life),” she says.
