Amisha Patel

- Vikram Chandiramani 

Amisha Patel made her debut with Hrithik Roshan in Kaho Na Pyar Hai. It was a debut that any other newcomer would have envied. Yet, she had complaints, as she didn’t get as much importance in the post-success media coverage. Slightly immature and unaware of the way the industry functioned, Amisha even lashed out at Rakesh Roshan who had made the film and in turn her career. Perhaps Rakesh    

Roshan understood. After all it was this naivette and innocence that he wanted in Kaho Na Pyar Hai. How else will a girl appear convincing dreaming when marooned on an Island with Hrithik?

Amisha’s luck remained good. Her next film with Sunny Deol, Gadar, too was a mega hit. So big was the success that it gave a new lease of life to Sunny. Amisha went on doing many films but they didn’t work. Some thought that the magic will return when she signed a film with Hrithik in the lead (Aap Mujhe Achhe Lagne Lage) but it didn’t work, either.

Kranti, Kya Yehi Pyar Hai, Suno Sasurji, Zamaana, Ankahee, Aap Ki Khatir, Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. nothing has really worked. Nor has the restaurant at Oshiwara she started.

Amisha Patel walked out of her home some years back after they vehemently opposed her relationship with director Vikram Bhatt and allegedly mishandled her finances.

Amisha Patel is currently working in Bhool Bhoolaiyan where she shares screen space with Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. Priyadarshan is directing this movie which is expected to release sometime in June/ July 2007.
