Meanwhile, Sushmita Sen’s brother Rajeev Sen, reacted to her sister’s relationship with the London-based businessman. In an interaction with India Today, Rajeev Sen said, “I am pleasantly surprised too. I will speak to my sister about this.” It is to be noted that Rajeev was recently in the news due to reports of his separation with wife Charu Asopa. The couple, who welcomed their first child together – Ziana, a baby girl in November 2021, is heading for a divorce.
Sushmita, 46, has not yet confirmed her relationship with Lalit Modi. She had announced her split from model-actor Rohman Shawl in December last year with an Instagram post. “We began as friends, we remain friends! The relationship was long over… The love remains,” she wrote. She accompanied the post with the hashtags #nomorespeculations.
Lalit Modi had relocated to London from India in 2010, amid scandals and controversies linked to the cricket tournament IPL. In March, the High Court of London cleared him of ‘actionable misrepresentation’ as alleged by former Indian model-turned-investor Gurpreet Gill Maag in a legal challenge.
Sushmita Sen, who was crowned Miss Universe in 1994, made her Bollywood debut with the 1996 film ‘Dastak’. The 46-year-old actress has two daughters — Alisah and Renee.
