Sushmita Sen's daughter Renee Sen on social media trolls: 'People will always have things to say'
Renee Sen, the daughter of actor Sushmita Sen, has spoken about dealing with negativity and trolling on social media. She said that she doesn't read 'social media comments a lot' as people will always have things to say. Calling herself the 'happiest girl on the planet' she also said that she wants to stay that way.
In February, Renee Sen made her acting debut with a short film titled Suttabaazi, directed by Kabeer Khurana. In the movie, she played a rebellious teenager stuck at home with her conservative parents during the lockdown. It was released on Disney+ Hotstar.
Speaking to a leading daily, Renee said, "People will always have things to say. I don't read social media comments a lot, to be honest. I don't want to get sidetracked. I am the happiest girl on the planet and that's how I want to be. I try to see the good as much as I can. The rest of it doesn’t matter."
On her performance in Suttabaazi, she added, "I was finally able to look at myself on screen; it's been a dream for so long! It has been a happy experience, so the only feeling is that I am so happy. Even if someone has constructive criticism or feedback, I am just taking it all in. Although I am just 21 years old, it has been the best experience of my life...I would like to work more. But for that, I have to work on myself a lot. But yes, I would like to be an actor full-time."
Earlier, Renee in an interview with Hindustan Times had talked about her privilege, adding that she will ‘never take it for granted’. She had said, “I’m not running away from my surname. I know it comes with a lot of responsibility and the love I’m getting is because of my mother, the kind of work she has done. But I’m not taking the pressure or else I won’t be able to do a single day’s job. And, I’ll never take it for granted, nor will I allow anybody else to take it for granted.”
Sushmita Sen adopted Renee in 2000 when she herself was 24 years old. Her younger daughter, Alisah, was adopted in 2010.
