Every now and then, she treats her fans with lovely pictures, videos, or even anecdotes. Speaking of which, Sushmita recently gave an interview to her daughter Alisha’s school magazine. She opened up on the difference between male and female actors in the film industry.

She said, “As an actor, they would not allow me the same privileges as a male actor or the same opportunities. So yes, I’ve had to fight as a woman for many levels of acceptance. How do I deal with it? Well, I’m older now, so I do have experience and a reputation which has taken me years to build.” The Aarya actress also talked about being type-cast in the industry and said, “The gender inequality and the difficulties that are born from being, for the lack of another word, typecast as a woman carries too many disparities in it. With experience and withstanding your ground, you are slowly changing the world one day at a time.”
