The 45-year-old shares a special bond with her dance instructor Pritam Shikhare. She often shares pictures and dance rehearsal videos with her, referring to her as a mother figure.
To express her love for them on Mother`s Day, she penned, "To my Shobha Amma and Pritam Maa @pritam_shikhare. Thank you for being a divine source of love, strength and support through some pretty trying times...ensuring I always came back stronger!! Such a blessing to be born to your hearts...I love you!!."

The diva is herself a mother of two girls, Renee Sen and Alisah Sen. She adopted her elder daughter Renee in 2000 and her second girl, Alisah, in 2010.
To raise her daughters and give them the proper nurturance they require, Sushmita took a break her from acting career. She once shared in an interview "I asked myself, do I really want to do this. With a baby at home and my companies, the I AM Foundation, I have a lot more that needs my attention right now. It`s time to focus on them."
But as her younger daughter Alisah turned 10, Sushmita made her comeback with the Indian crime drama web television series `Aarya` for which she had bagged the title `Best Actor in drama series` at eminent entertainment award platforms like Filmfare, Dada Saheb Phalke, Film Critics Guild, Raj Kapoor Award.
