Sushmita also recently appeared on Twinkle Khanna's chat show where she spoke about her decision not to get married and what led to it. In the show, Sushmita said, "Luckily I met some very interesting men in my life, the only reason I never got married is that they were a letdown. It had nothing to do with my kids. My kids were never in the equation. If at all, they have been very gracious. Both my kids have accepted people in my life with open arms, and never made a face. They have given everybody an equal measure of love and respect. It's the most beautiful thing to watch".
She also revealed that she came close to getting married thrice, and all three times 'God saved' her. "I came close to getting married thrice; all three times God saved me. I can't tell you what disasters followed with their respective lives. God protected me, also because God is protecting these two kids, he can't let me get into a messy affair," she added.
Lalit Modi was married to Minal Modi who passed away four years ago after battling cancer. They had tied the knot in 1991.
