Sushmita Sen: Sushmita is one of the versatile actors of Bollywood. The actress went on a break for a decade. While talking to film critic Sucharita Tyagi, Sushmita said, “I think the 10 year hiatus set the priorities in order. It told me what I wanted to do and what not to do. Mainstream cinema wasn’t giving me what I wanted. A lot of it was a preconceived notion of my age and my screen age and that I hadn’t worked for ten years.” The actress made a smashing comeback with Aarya. She will be next seen in Taali.
