Actress and former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen is on a roll. Her latest web show Taali which is based on the life of a transgender activist Shreegauri Sawant is up for release on 15th August. She has also recently received an honorary doctorate from Techno India University in West Bengal.
While Sush is proud and elated to have received the Honorary Doctor of Letters (D. Litt) degree, unfortunately she wasn’t able to accept it personally. It was her father Shubeer Sen who went on her behalf. The actress later took to Instagram to share the images of her father accepting her degree. She wrote “Hon (Dr.) Sushmita Sen.Just had to see how it looked together!!! Missed receiving the D.Litt in person, down with the worst viral…but to have my father @sensubir receive this honour on my behalf yesterday …this is EVERYTHING!!Thank you Baba!!!! You stood tall & proud!!!!#celebrating #honorarydoctorate #graduatinglifewithhonors I love you guys!! #duggadugga.”
A part of her citation read, ‘A woman of grace, talent and inspiration. From winning the prestigious Miss Universe title to becoming a trailblazing actress, she has graced the world with her charm and charisma.’
