When Sushmita Sen Broke Her Silence On Being Pitted Against Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: ‘Never Had Time To Be Enemies’
Sushmita Sen had once opened up about the equation she shared with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and had revealed that they never had time to either be friends, rivals or enemies
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sushmita Sen are both very successful Bollywood actresses and they made India immensely proud after Sushmita Sen won the Miss Universe title and Aishwarya eon the Miss World titles in the year 1994. This was the first time an Indian had won Miss Universe, and it was a huge achievement. It was during the Miss India pageant that the two beauties made it to the top five, but Sushmita defeated Aishwarya with her answer to win the title of Miss India.
It was since that time, that the two have been considered by people as competition to each other. Sushmita Sen had opened up about being pitted against Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and the equation they have, in an old video by WildFilmsIndia. She said, “We never had enough time to be enemies, rivals or friends. We were always people who knew each other from a distance, we minded our own business. We were not the best-of-friends saying 'you first', 'please you first'. We always wanted to be the best in our own way, which we have proven to be. I went ahead and won Ms. Universe, she went ahead and won Ms. World. Neither of us was a second to anybody, we did our jobs and we did it well."
She further added that one can compare two people against another only when both are perfect, which is not the case. “None of us are perfect, we both have started new career, we both have to work really hard to make a place for ourselves before we can start comparing. So there is no such thing as rivalry.”
Sushmita Sen said that since people are so interested in this, it’s going to be written and talked about, but after all that’s said and done, Aishwarya and she would have the last laugh. ALSO READ: Sushmita Sen Shares Her 'Day And Night' Glowy Makeup Tutorial With Fans On Instagram; Watch VIDEO
