Sush’s painting fetches $55,000

Besides acting and singing, Sushmita Sen is also an accomplished painter. The actor, who said that painting is her hobby, recently auctioned her one of the best paintings for $55,000.

Sushmita said that she paints for herself and her friends and has never thought of taking it up professionally. This is the first time that that she had put up her paintings for an auction and that too to raise money for charity.

The painting titled ‘Ibaadat’ was sold during a telethon to raise money for former

Pakistan cricket star Imran Khan’s cancer hospital in Pakistan. However, the buyer was not identified.

Sushmita was completely bowled over by the response she got during the auction and said that she felt India and Pakistan have no boundaries. “It goes to show that death and disease have no nationality,” Sushmita was quoted as saying to an Indian national daily.
