Sushmita Sen's latest show Aarya is currently streaming on Disney Plus Hotstar. The action-packed show has received mostly good reviews and has marked a successful comeback for Sen. Earlier the actress took a ten-year gap from working in films and also skipped most award functions. However, in a recent interview Sushmita Sen has said that she always believes that distance makes the heart grow fonder.
Speaking to Indian Express Sushmita Sen also said that most people did not agree with her decision to take a long break from films. She added saying, “I didn’t listen to the people who managed me because we didn’t agree. They thought like you just said ‘Out of sight, out of mind,’ and I always thought distance makes the heart grow fonder.”
The Main Hoon Na actress continued saying, "I didn’t have a very heightened state of insecurity because my life had many other purposes. I wasn’t sitting at home, waiting for a film to come by. I was doing multiple other things with my life, creating brands in various ventures and I was looking at creative projects and biding my time, saying, ‘It will come. I haven’t done what I believe I am capable of and I need people to believe in me to bring that out."
Speaking about making a comeback in a digital show the actress said, "Because no one was offering me Aarya, I needed this to come back. It’s not just the author-backed role, a fantastic team, a platform like Disney+Hotstar, it’s all these directors. Where do you get paid to come and learn and unlearn? I got paid to do that with Aarya. I came back from a hiatus, was taught by all these directors. It takes a lot for an actor to have an opportunity like this one. And it doesn’t come by every day so sometimes, you just have to wait for it."
