Sushmita Sen’s elder daughter, 21-year-old Renee, is following her mother’s footsteps. Her first acting project, a short film named ‘Suttabaazi’ has made its release. However, since a lot has been said about the privilege enjoyed by star kids, Renee is not just aware of it but is also seemingly mindful about how much or how little she must use it to carve her own path.
In a recent interview with NDTV, Renee opened up about how her mother, Sushmita Sen, reminds her that above all, she must be deserving of the movies and other projects that come her way.
“My mother always says that you must be deserving, and you cannot just take someone’s place because you are my daughter, if you don’t earn it then don’t be in it. I am very lucky, and I have to earn being here every day.”
She went on to express how she knows that lakhs of people come to Mumbai to become actors and being Sushmita Sen’s daughter does put her at a place of privilege.
“I am aware of how privileged I am. I know there are lakhs of people coming to Mumbai to become actors. I don’t want to boast but being her daughter has been the biggest privilege. So, the biggest disservice I will do if I am dishonest to my work,” Hindustan Times quoted her saying.
Lastly, she revealed how Sushmita Sen reacted to watching her first film.
“I think she cried a little. Alisah was very happy. She’s very observant, so when she says you’ve done a good job, you know you’ve actually done a good job. And Rohman Uncle said he was very proud of me,” she said.
We hope that Renee’s talent takes her far!
