Sushmita Sen cancelled her plans to attend a fashion show at the last moment after apparently learning of her former beau Randeep Hooda's presence

It’s almost always awkward to stumble across your former flame, especially when the parting has been bitter. Perhaps, Sushmita Sen too had a similar thought while contemplating on whether to attend an ongoing fashion show in the city.

According to sources, Sush was scheduled to attend designer Rajat Tangri’s show and cheer for him from the front row. But apparently after finding out that her ex Randeep Hooda was to appear as the showstopper, she cancelled her plans at the last moment.

Says a fashion insider, “Sushmita was on the guest list. The organisers had made arrangements and had even reserved a seat for her after Sush promised to come. But just half an hour before the show, she did a no-show. It was only after the organisers called her to figure out when she would arrive did she inform them of her absence.”

It is widely said that Sush and Randeep didn’t have a happy parting in 2009 and the actress is believed to have decided it was best to avoid crossing paths with her former beau. Sushmita remained unavailable for comment.
