Sushmita Sen doesn’t like it when fans tell her she is ‘still’ beautiful. Here’s what she prefers

Sushmita Sen says that calling a woman ‘still’ beautiful means having a very narrow idea of what beauty is supposed to be. She would prefer it if people simply called her ‘beautiful’.

If you didn’t expect a Miss Universe to always look stunning, we don’t know what to tell you. Actor and beauty queen Sushmita Sen is a gorgeous woman with a golden heart and her fans know it too. However, sometimes fans do say things that are not always very polite.

Sushmita made a special post on Saturday to talk to her followers about how saying that ‘she is still beautiful’, may not be the nicest thing to say to a woman, irrespective of your admiration for her. She posted a stunning selfie and captioned it, “’She’s STILL beautiful’ I hear this statement a lot & wonder, how shallow & temporary is the idea of #beautiful for some people, in truth, beauty only grows & glows where there is life!!! “She’s STILL here” or “she’s STILL more beautiful” is more like it then!!! P.S. when meant, “She’s beautiful” is enough! beautifully yours, STILL Sushmita!!! I love you guys!!!.”


Her fans did understand her point of view and showered her with more compliments. “That’s the true inspiration @sushmitasen47 !! I am 39+,have 2 kids of 16 & 12 years of ages. People used to tell me that I still look like a 25-30yrs old lady....hw do I look so young!! I do ask them that is there any age limit to look “beautiful “? I don’t get attached to anything too much,so there is no worry which can touch my heart,my soul & as my long my soul is beautiful, I also look beautiful to those people,” a follower commented. “You define beauty like no one else!,” wrote another. “Well said. I feel beauty grows as the soul shines through one’s being. Anyone working on themselves will look beautiful,” commented another.
