In a recent interview, Sushmita Sen broke her silence on her past relationship with ex-partner Lalit Modi, emphasizing that it was merely “just another phase” in her life. The actress expressed surprise at the judgments people passed regarding her personal life.
Speaking with Mid-Day, Sen addressed the speculation surrounding her relationship with Lalit Modi, stating that while she never publicly disclosed details about their relationship, she did clarify once on social media that she was not married. “I just put out one post on Instagram because sometimes I think when people keep quiet, their silence is mistaken for weakness or fear. I just needed to put out one post to let them know I am laughing. After that, I was done with it,” she explained.
Sen, who seems to take the memes and speculation in good spirits, remarked, “Memes bahut mast aa rahe hain. Mazza aa raha hai. But kya hai, kisi ko agar aap golddigger bulate ho toh usey monetise toh mat karo kum se kum. (I’m enjoying all the memes, but if you’re calling someone a golddigger, at least don’t monetise her). And check your facts. Mujhe gold nahi diamond pasand hain (I like diamonds, not gold). Anyway, that was another experience, another phase, and things happened. And if I was going to marry someone, I’d be married to them. I don’t try. I either do or I don’t.”
Last year, Lalit Modi had stirred controversy by sharing photos with Sushmita Sen, suggesting they were married. Sen later clarified that they were not married.
Recent reports suggest that Sushmita Sen has rekindled her romance with Rohman Shawl. The couple was spotted holding hands at a Diwali party, fueling speculation about their relationship.
Sen, who was last seen in Aarya season 3, shared insights into her evolving relationship with Shawl, whom she met through social media. Speaking about their age difference, she said, “I didn’t know that he would turn out to be a very evolved person for someone 15 years younger. Shallows don’t work for me, it has to have depth. It has been beautiful. Me, him, my kids, we make a team.”
