Sushmita Sen was quite open about her relationship from the time with Vikram Bhatt. In Rendezvous with Simi Garewal, Vikram and Sushmita made it to the sofa together to discuss their relationship. She spoke in regards to the fact the filmmaker was going through a divorce when she met him and even had professed her love. But she did’t need to conceal it.
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.”
