"I want to give myself a pat on my back as a mother every day," Sushmita said.

Sushmita calls her experience 'challenging' but 'gratifying'

Sushmita Sen recalled that her motherhood phase has been quite tough; however, she handled it on her own.

"It was challenging throughout because I have done it alone. And so, the perception that 'Oh! She is Sushmita Sen, and she can do it, is not true," the Biwi No. 1 actress shared.


Sushmita called the experience of being a single parent "gratifying," while adding that she is as old as her children, Renee and Alisah. In other words, the actress added that every day is a learning experience for her.
