Sushmita Sen was at her candid best when she spoke to Twinkle Khanna for Tweak India's The Icons. The former Miss Universe also spoke about her decision of not getting married and what led to it. "Luckily I met some very interesting men in my life, the only reason I never got married is because they were a let down. It had nothing to do with my kids. My kids were never in the equation. If at all, they have been very gracious. Both my kids have accepted people in my life with open arms, never made a face. They have given everybody equal measure of love and respect. It's the most beautiful thing to watch," said Sushmita Sen.
The actress added, "I came close to getting married thrice, all three times God saved me. I can't tell you what disasters followed with their respective lives. God protected me, also because God is protecting these two kids, he can't let me get into a messy affair."
Last year, Sushmita Sen announced her and model-boyfriend Rohman's break-up with an Instagram post. "We began as friends, we remain friends! The relationship was long over... The love remains," she wrote. She accompanied the post with the hashtags #nomorespeculations.
Sushmita Sen is a single mom to daughters Alisah and Renee. She adopted Renee in 2000 while Alisah joined the family in 2010. Renee made her acting debut with a short film.
