Taali, starring Sushmita Sen, was recently released and has received widespread acclaim. The series, directed by Ravi Jadhav, is based on the life of Shreegauri Sawant, played by Sushmita, an Indian transgender activist. Apart from the compelling and unique storyline, Taali is generating a lot of buzz on social media, owing primarily to Sushmita Sen’s outstanding performance as Sawant. Meanwhile, after an old video of Sushmita Sen being compared to Aishwarya Rai and Priyanka Chopra went viral, the actress decided to respond.
A video from the past in which Sushmita Sen was questioned about the accomplishments of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra has resurfaced on the internet. A journalist attempted to compare them in the video, claiming that Sushmita’s accomplishments were inferior to those of Aishwarya and Priyanka. Sushmita, on the other hand, responded to the question in a humble and composed manner. The actress recently responded to the video, stating that she was simply presenting facts and was not attempting to be humble.
Sushmita opened up about the video in an interview with Siddharth Kannan, saying, ‘At first I was like, ‘What kind of question is this?’ That was my first reaction. Why would you be so disgraceful by asking a question like that? They came out of nowhere. I was like, ‘they are asking the truth, let me give them the truth.”
She further continued, “You see, the thing about inclusion as a word is to not look at someone else’s success and think, ‘We have not achieved anything.’ You must applaud what is amazing about someone. There is no harm in that, in fact, that’s better for the world to know that’s how you include.”
Sushmita emphasised the importance of remembering where you started your journey with gratitude, saying, “I went into the answer stating facts about how well they’ve done for our country, which is a huge thing for us. That was it. I was not trying to be humble, it was just stating a fact and hoping that this gentleman stops asking this line of question because he’s embarrassing himself.”
A reporter questioned Sushmita about Aishwarya and Priyanka in a video that has gone viral on social media.“Unhone bada kuch haasil kiya. Aapne thoda kum haasil kiya unke hisaab se”
Sushmita responded modestly to the question, saying, “Bohot kum. In fact, Priyanka Chopra ne jo humare liye kiya hai, bohot kum logon ne kiya hai. She has made us very, very proud.”
