Sushmita Sen’s father does not want his daughter to participate in the beauty contest. He doesn’t want his daughter to wear a swimsuit. When Sushmita decided to enter Miss India at the age of 18, her father was furious. He didn’t even talk to Sushmita for a long time.
He always wanted Sushmita to become an IAS officer, keeping it in mind that he also gave a good education to his daughter. However, Sushmita’s co-stars say otherwise. She also participated in beauty contests and won the title of Miss India and then Miss Universe at the age of 19.
Sushmita Sen is the first Indian woman to win the Miss Universe crown.
Sushmita became the winner of the 43rd Miss Universe contest held in the Philippines. Before Sushmita, no Indian woman had received this title in the Miss Universe competition.
When I told my father it was like a bomb went off.
Sushmita Sen is in the headlines these days for her recent web series Arya-3. During an interview with Mid Day, he told some interesting things about his personal life. He said- My father wanted me to become an IAS officer.
My studies are also going on accordingly. However, one day I told my father that I will participate in Miss India. It was like a bomb went off. My father was angry. He stopped talking to me.
Sushmita’s father Subir Sen is a wing commander in the Indian Air Force.
The father used to say- Son, complete your degree.
Sushmita Sen said- I will never go to college. This was a concern that always haunted my father. He used to tell me daughter, whatever you want to do, do it but get your degree first.
Sushmita’s father was very angry because of her wearing a swimsuit
Sushmita said- When my father found out that I had to wear a swimsuit in the beauty contest, his anger increased. Then I explained to him emotionally. I said that wearing a swimsuit is part of the contest. Still his attitude did not change.
However, when I won the Miss India title, they got a little interested. When I participated in Miss Universe, she was very proud. As a soldier, he felt proud that I would bring glory to the country. Then later they understood those things.
