The filmmaker was uninhibited...
Sushmita Sen was very open about her relationship with Vikram Bhatt from the time she was in it. In Rendezvous with Simi Garewal, Sushmita and Vikram made it to the couch together to talk about their relationship. She had professed her love openly and even spoke about the fact that the filmmaker was going through a divorce when she met him. But she didn't want to hide it. Her words were, "I don't feel guilty because I have done something with a very open conscience. I wasn't going wait to tell the world that I loved him just because he hadn't got through his divorce yet." Later, they broke up. While Sushmita moved on without any bitterness, Vikram still thinks about those times. In a recent interview to Spotboye.com, he spoke about his affair with Sen and it's shocking.
Vikram revealed, “I have also known people like Sam (Gaurva Arora's character in Love Games), who harm themselves. I’ll share something about my life with you. I was having an extramarital affair with Sushmita (Sen) and was going through a divorce. I was very depressed -- it’s like your whole life is crumbling around you. I remember standing on the 6th floor of a building, looking down and thinking, ‘What if I jump? Will it not solve all my problems?’ It was such a real thought, I stepped back. It was a moment of coming closest to suicide. Though not suicidal, Sam does self-harm -- he takes a knife and cuts himself.”
He also said: "We were too young, then. I was 27, she was just 20. We were a bundle of immaturity."
