I prefer diamonds, not gold: Sushmita Sen reacts to being called ‘gold digger’, says she would have been married already if she wanted to
Sushmita Sen needs no introduction and is known for her versatility. But beyond the professional life, the name of the actress is often in headlines when it comes to relationships and dating. Talking about the same, in a recent interview, the actress went on to share if being in the limelight for it affects her.
Sushmita said, “The problem is not dating. The problem is trying to hide it. Usmein bahut energy jaati hai. Also there is a fear of who would say what. I believe that this is none of your business. I don’t need to respond if people talk. I can respond when I want and with who I want. There are times in my life when I believe that I need to show respect towards this relationship, so I bring it out. I won’t wait for your respect. It’s necessary for me so I did it. No, dating has never been a problem.” She also added that she doesn’t get attracted to men who feel intimidated by her.
The actress was further asked about the rumours of her which mentioned her as a ‘gold-digger’ or about her marriages. Sushmita continued, “You can’t be 47 years old having lived most of your life in the public eye and be afraid of the public. You have to love them, like them, not like them, that’s fine, it’s part of the process. Do bartan saath mein rehte hai woh awaaz karenge... I have been one of those people who has been loved so much, that when this sort of stuff happens, I think it’s okay, I accept it, sabki life mein kabhi na kabhi aisi kankan hoti hai. But it in no way defines who I am. So, I had to put it out there to show, I find the memes funny, but if you are calling someone a gold digger, at least don’t monetise it! Check your facts. I prefer diamonds, not gold… And if I was going to marry, I would be married to them, love. I don’t try. I do it or I don’t.”
On the work front, the actress was last seen in the Hotstar series Aarya Season 3.
