Recently, a video of the Samay actor Sushmita Sen surfaced on the internet. In this video, which is a clip from the show Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai, Sen talked about her journey and how she won the Miss India title. In the video, fans can see that the actor stated he came from a family that did not have much money to afford a designer gown. They were supposed to wear four different costumes, and coming from a middle-class family, she knew her restrictions. But her mother supported her through this.
She told Sen that people will come to see her and not her clothes. The mother-daughter duo then went to a shop at Sarojini Nagar market, Delhi, and got a dress piece. They then went to a local tailor who was skilled in making petticoats. Her mother told the tailor to make a perfect dress as it will come on TV.
