Aim is to leave behind a legacy of good body of work, says Sushmita Sen

Mumbai, Nov 3: Box office success was once a barometer of accomplishment for Sushmita Sen but the ”Aarya” star says she is now more focused on building a body of quality work.
The actor, who gained popularity for her roles in films like “Biwi No.1”, “Filhaal”, “Aankhen”, and “Main Hoon Na” among others, returned to mainstream acting after a break of five years with the 2020 release of Disney+Hotstar series, “Aarya”.
”When I joined the film industry my dreams were all about hits and how many thousands of crores one can make in terms of your reach of a film’s hit. ”Now, it’s about the legacy of leaving behind a body of work that you can then look back at and other people can, because cinema lives on longer than YouTube and lives on forever. So, when they look back at it, they should say she was a good actor,” Sen told PTI in an interview.
In her second acting stint, Sen has featured in “Taali” and “Aarya”, whose third season released on Friday on Disney+Hotstar.
Sen, 47, said she is eager to do movies as she made her debut into acting on the big screen but the role has to be author-backed.
”I haven’t found a script that makes me feel like this is the one that I would like to do to reach a cinema audience. It has to be something that allows me to entertain the hell out of you for two-and-half hours and you come out of there saying, ‘I just loved it’… It has to be something that will leave an impact and it needs to be author backed.” Created by Ram Madhvani and Sandeep Modi, “Aarya” is the official remake of the popular Dutch crime-drama “Penoza”, which revolves around a middle-aged woman and her struggle to save her family.
A former Miss Universe, the actor said that playing strong characters in “Aarya” and “Taali” — of a mother and a transgender activist respectively– has inspired her to work harder in her future projects.
”It’s a huge honour for any actor to get to play these characters (Aarya from ‘Aarya’ and Gauri Sawant from ‘Taali’) in their lifetime. But then for an actor like me who left and came back, not at her prime, to get that opportunity is a huge honour and it’s a huge responsibility as well. It’s where I have to pull up my socks every single day and know that not everyone gets this and that I have to make the most of it,” she added. (PTI)
