“I will always remember her (Sushmita Sen) fondly. She was an unusual girl. What I salute her for is that she has lived his life on her own terms. She has the courage to live according to her own will. It is my personal belief that we should give the right to human beings to live life on their own terms in the second decade of the 21st century. I think she has always been someone who has followed her heart and lived her life on her own terms." After becoming Miss Universe in 1994, Sushmita and Vikram Bhatt reportedly dated in the mid-1990s. 

Mahesh described Sushmita as 'unusual' by the standards of the mainstream film industry. He said that when they met, she did not have the qualities of a 'normal film heroine'.
