Sushmita Sen is an inspiration for women of different ages. This lady is a one-man army, who stops at nothing. Whether it is winning the title of Miss Universe at the age of 19, or fighting against the system to bring home her first daughter, Renee at the age of 24, she is truly an embodiment of the spirit of a female warrior. This fierce lady lives life on her own terms.
Sushmita is our very own wonder woman, who doesn’t need a man to support her. She had bought a 22-carat diamond ring for herself, indirectly claiming that she doesn’t need a man to buy her big rocks. When she is with someone, it is because she loves them and wants to be with them. It is never out of need. The love life of this mother of two has always fascinated the media. Here are some men, who were very lucky to be in Sushmita Sen’s life:
Vikram Bhatt and Sushmita Sen had started seeing each other when they were filming for the movie, Dastak. Vikram Bhatt was married at that time and this extramarital affair had sure caused him a lot of trouble. Their relationship didn’t last long, and the two had parted ways before things could lift off.
Randeep Hooda and Sushmita Sen’s relationship had lasted for three years and was on every tabloid. This relationship, however, had a very bitter ending. In an interview, Randeep Hooda had said that breaking up with Sushmita Sen was the best thing that had happened to him. In a conversation with The Times Of India, Randeep had said:
“The biggest part of my relationship with her over three years was my relationship with her daughter, Renee. I missed only one theatre rehearsal in my life as Sushmita wanted me to not go and that is the worst thing I did in terms of my value system. I was exposed to fame although I was on the sidelines as I was not a star. The break-up was the best thing that happened to me and I realised that I gave it too much time in my life.”
Bunty Sachdev heads a talent management company, Cornerstone. He was also rumoured to be dating Sonakshi Sinha. The talk about Sushmita and Bunty’s affair had caught fire when the two were seen together multiple times. He was Sushmita’s manager at that time. Finally, Sushmita had laughed off the rumours, and we believe her.
When Sushmita was 36 years old, she had fallen for a 22 years old businessman, Imtiyaz Khatri. The two had walked the ramp in Goa which had resulted in a good friendship. They were often seen enjoying each other’s company along with their friends. While Sushmita had never commented on it, Imtiyaz had always said that they were good friends.
Mudassar Aziz was the director of Sushmita Sen’s movie, Dulha Mil Gaya. The two had started liking each other and had gradually fallen in love. However, the two had parted ways after a while. It was a mutual decision and Mudassar had nothing but kind words for Sushmita. In a conversation with DNA, talking about his relationship with Sushmita, Mudassar had said:
“She is a lovely person and I adore and respect her for the decisions she has taken in her life. She has lived life on her own terms. Not many can do that. Apart from this, I have the highest professional regard for her. I have been a fan of her films.”
Sabeer Bhatia is the founder of Hotmail, and it was rumoured that he and Sushmita were in a steady relationship before she had called it off. There were various rumours that Bhatia had gifted a 10.5-carat diamond to his lady-love.
Hotelier, Sanjay Narang and Sushmita Sen had a brief affair. Sushmita had slyly declared her love tale through an Instagram post in which she had written:
“When ‘He’ tells you the most beautiful things and REALLY means them!!!! Being in love is one thing, BEING love is everything.”
Things were very serious between Sushmita Sen and Sanjay Narang, and there were also reports that he had popped the million-dollar question and she had accepted. However, sadly, the couple is no longer together.
Hotelier, Ritik Bhasin was also one of the potential life partners of Sushmita Sen. According to media reports, Sushmita and Ritik were going steady for four years and were also seen together at Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge's wedding reception. They both were inseparable! However, luck had not favoured them as well and they had called it quits.

Whenever she is in love, she flaunts it with pride. We are very glad that we have such a talented, intelligent and brilliant woman in our country, who is the guiding spirit of many.
