New Delhi, Jan.18 (ANI): Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen inaugurated an exhibition of figurative paintings here on Saturday.
Sen, dressed in exquisite black outfit, inaugurated painters Raghu Vyas’’s solo show titled ”Krishna–Romantic fantasy in peacock forest”.

Mesmerized by various moods of Krishna, which were depicted in these paintings Sushmita Sen said that she connected with these paintings as a human being.
