Mumbai: Stunning Sushmita Sen who has been very much in news to play Rani Lakshmibai is averse to playing former Prime Minsiter Indira Gandhi in her next flick.

Talking about her take on politics to a news daily, the gorgeous lady who shares her birthday with the former Prime Minister said, “The countdown to my birthday begins as it`s on November 19. Though I share my birthday with Indira Gandhi, I have zero interest in politics."

The mother of two adopted daughters says that her fans have been comparing her with the great leader owing to her birthday coinciding with that of the legendary Prime Minister.

Its bad news for her fans who have been desperately waiting to see their idol portray Indira Gandhi. But a striking common factor is the fact that Indira Gandhi was the first woman Prime Minister of our nation and Sushmita was the first Indian to bring the Miss Universe crown home.

And the former Miss World does have one more factor common with the late Prime Minister- both these women are truly women of substance.

Now, whether or not the gorgeous actress plays Indira Gandhi onscreen, she does have many factors in common with the former Prime Minister. Both have a great persona and that is something remarkable.

The Bengali beauty, who will turn 35 on the 19 November, will be celebrating the special day with her two daughters in Dubai.
