I really thought it is an interesting article. Would appreciate some honest opinion

Main Hoon Na wasn't a turning point for me" - Sushmita Sen

She can beat all the actors in the industry hollow when it comes to holding a conversation. The lady speaks her mind and what a mind it is…looking stunning in an ordinary Jeans - Jacket ensemble Sushmita Sen sure knows how to keep the atmosphere charged. Speaking exclusively for Main Aisa Hi Hoon, Sushmita is all geared up for an exciting year…here she tells you why!

Tell us about your role in Main Aisa Hi Hoon?
In this film I have got an opportunity to play a fantastic character. First time in my career I am playing a lawyer's role who fights for the custody of Ajay Devgan's child.

What excited you about Neeti Khanna - your character in the movie?
The most beautiful thing for me in this movie was that I play a mother and for the first time I am playing a kind of mother who neglects her child. So for me as Sushmita Sen and as Neeti, this was a very different experience. In the start it was a bit difficult for me to play this role as I didn't know how to be a bad mother but its my job and I guess over a period of time I have learnt to disconnect from who I am as a person and I've had a blast doing this film.

How special has this film been for you?
It is one of my finest performances, these days I have gotten a little shameless these days and say so openly when I believe it. This film is very special for me and will always remain because to present on Indian screen a working woman who is not apologetic or ashamed of the way she lives. For me to play a character like this is to pioneer women into the 21st century, which I think is about time, we do that.

Is it true that Neeti Khanna goes through a transition herself in the process of fighting the case?
Yes it is true. Infact there is a very beautiful 4-minute scene where this character Neeti Khanna the lawyer transforms and breaks down. So there are these beautiful moments in the film of people like you and me who put up this act of being very brave but actually are as fragile as the next person.

What do you think of Ajay Devgan's performance?
He has given a superb performance. I'll tell you in all honesty that in Indian film industry, for a leading hero to play a character like this is very challenging. Half of the actors reject the role as soon as they hear the script while others who agree would play it as a hero. But Ajay has played the character in the film genuinely as a 7-year-old child. Secondly in a film like Main Aisa Hi Hoon you can't have songs because it breaks the consistency of the performance, he does have songs in it and he's pulled it off beautifully. Anybody in his shoes would have looked like he's doing music videos for songs and film he somehow has managed to combine the two of them.

What do you think of Esha's performance in the movie?
Esha has done a beautiful job in this film; she has walked a very thin line. To perform the complicated role that she has done in such a young age is fabulous and she looks her hottest best in her introduction.

Is there scope for songs in a movie like Main Aisa Hi Hoon?
Our industry is a musical industry so whether there is scope or no we have to have songs in a film. Maybe audiences like you and me or multiplex audiences can see a songless movie like Bhoot or Vastu Shastra, but in the B & C centers of our country even today a movie runs on one song. So it is a part of the commercial aspect of the Indian movie business. So there is always scope for songs in our movie whether one wants it or not is the director's protocol. Here Harry Baweja wanted music so GOD blesses Himesh. He has done a fabulous job, the music helps the narrative of the film it doesn't disturb it.

You played a cop in Samay, a doctor in Vastu Shastra; here you play a lawyer, fixation with professions? I am a very professional actor (laughs) these days I play only professional characters. Then there is a movie coming up with Salman where I am playing a nurse. I haven't left a single profession, I am doing pretty ok. I am looking forward to each one of these films.

There is Chingari coming up. Tell us about some other projects of yours?
Chingari is for the first time that I have portrayed a prostitute; I have spoken in Bihari language. Then there is Runway, which is inspired by a true-life story of a woman who lives in Bhuj who was given the bravery award by our president because of what she had done which his something so fascinating that we all should read about and see. They all will be back to back, and I am really kicked because I am going to play some very nice roles in this particular year.

Do you think Main Hoon Na was the turning point in your career?
If you ask me every actor will keep having these turning points as each Friday goes by. So Main Hoon Na wasn't a turning point for me as an actor, for me turning point started in 1996 December when I signed Dastak, after that all the flops and the hits that I have seen have made me what I am today.

Sushmita Sen is one of the most beautiful women in the Industry today. What I like about her is she is very articulate and when she talks, you want to sit up and listen. She isn't fake and some how seems a very down to earth person, cut off from the glamour of the film world.

I remember watching her interview on this show, 'Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hain' on Zee when she talked about how she took part in Ms. India in 1994.The story goes that when she went to give her name for Ms. India selections just for fun, the people at teh sign up stand told her that Aishwarya Rai is going to be competing that year. Aishwarya by then had been a reasonably established model. So Sushmita wanted to withdraw her name, but her mother told her not to. She told her that even if she looses, she has lost to the most beautiful woman in India and the best in that competition, and there is no fault in losin to the best.

Then for the competition, the black dress she wore wasnt a designer outfit, she got it stiched from a guy who makes petticoats in Delhi or something like that.. and the flower she wore on that dress was made by her mom..

And the rest we know is History..

As an actress, Sush is brilliant..her work in Filhaal I would rate as the best.. to be on screen with Tabu and match upto her is NO joke and she did that!

Clap Clap to a 'truly' beautiful woman !

Sush - I think is truely a woman of substance! She shares a wonderful life with her adopted daughter Renee and has shown what other beauty queens possibly only preach to win the crowns!

I thought she was brilliant in Filhaal and that too in front of a strong actor like Tabu.. Se was very good in a thriller 'Samay' as well.. though the movie ended up really wierd...

Commenting on this particular statement, she says is VERY true. I had never paid attn to the music of this movie, but I am just listening to it, its pretty soothing... honestly it sounds like the music from the early 90s, Kumar Sanu, Udit Narayan era.. nice feel to it..

Its true about a movie running on the basis of one song and in backward areas, they aren't going to understand a lot of movies being made today. Thats the reason Karan Johar's movies find a wider audience than Farhan Akthars. though Karan Johar makes the movie for the elite, the 'larger than life characers' and the 'escapist' cinema that works with the people in rural areas..

Similarly music like that works too.. ABA is played everywhere from Clubs to Dhabas, can you hear a Lukkha Chuppi played like that? Thats the power of music.. in a way it unifies a lot of things an thats y every movie has a scope for music..and it should...

The main reason I like Sushmita is for her personality. No other Bollywood actress can beat that. She is a wonderful lady and human being.
