Sushmita Sen is proud mother of two daughters and leaves no chance of celebrating her motherhood and small accomplishments of her kids. The former Miss Universe recently shared an essay written by her daughter Alisah on 'adopting a child from the orphanage' as part of her school assignment. Sushmita shared the video of her daughter reading it, on her social media.
Throughout the video, the actress had a lot of ‘aww moments’ when her daughter read out her adoption was out of love and not need and the responsibility towards an adopted child is same as that of a biological child. Sushmita was mighty impressed by her kid’s though process. In the end, she even asks if its Alisah who has written all that, on her own to which she replied that he has taken much care to write the essay and it was ‘reflective’ of her personal experiences. Calling it emotional, the actress shared that the video got tears in her eyes.

Sushmita adopted her first daughter Renee in 2000, when she was just 24 years old and the 10 years later she brought Alisah to their lives in 2010. The actress’s Instagram is filled with posts of both her daughters and trio is often seen enjoying holidays in exotic locations.
In an earlier interview with Rajeev Masand on Women We Love, how she wanted her daughters to find out about their biological parents once they turn 18. "I told her that I don't know if they have names of biological parents in there, but that information is rightfully hers.”
Speaking about how she broke the news of adoption to them, Sushmita said that she explained it through a game. "We played opposites, tall short, and all that. I then said adopted and biological. So Renee said 'I'm adopted?' I said yes, biological is boring. You are special, you're born from the heart.
On the work front, Sushmita confirmed at an event in 2018 that she has been reading scripts for a while now, and feels ready to sign a film.
