Name: Amrita Rao
Birthday: Wednesday, June 17, 1981
Star Sign : Gemini
First Film : Ab Ke Baras
Amrita Rao 21 years old wide- eyed adolescent who's suddenly found her path in life, is making the most of it and dutifully learning the ropes of the film industry at jet speed. Now she can't get over the fact that she is a part of film industry because she had never thought of being a full time actress. She is well know as a "Ishq Vishk Pyaar Vyaar" girl in film industry.
Amrita began her career with Raj Kanwar's Ab Ke Baras (2002). She was later seen in Rajkumar Santoshi's The Legend of Bhagat Singh but it was with Ken Ghosh's Ishq Vishk Pyaar Vyaar that she first tasted success. Filmmakers and the public have begun noticing her.
Right now she is having three projects 'Masti', 'Main Hoon Na' and 'Deewar- Let's Bring Our Heroes Home'. Out of these Masti is released and successfully running in theatres. Masti involves lot of top stars. Vivek Oberoi is paired opposite her. It's a comedy film in which she played a house wife who behaves in a peculiar fashion.
Farah Khan's Main Hoon Na is another film she is excited about. She is playing a college girl absolute contrast to the one she played in Ishq Vishk Pyaar Vyaar. Farah gave her a new hair style. She is wearing lot of trendy and western stuff. Her other co stars are Shah Rukh Khan, Susmita Sen and Zayed Khan. She is very exicited working with shahrukh.
A student of psychology from Sophiya College, Amrita was always fascinated by acting, but never in her wildest dreams had she thought that one day she would pursue it – ‘especially because I had no contacts in the film industry at all. I thought it was tough battle if one wanted to establish oneself here. I guess I was destined to be here!’
Coming from a very well to do, Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmin family, this Gemini born (on June 17th) started her modeling career with ‘Fairever’ fairness cream ad but it was the Close-up ad that fetched her recognition. Within 18 months, she was the face that promoted Major Brands such as Clean & Clear Face Wash, Pantene Hair Wash, Wringly Chewing Gum, Domino's Pizza, Anne French, HMT Watches and a lot of South Indian ads.
But it was after the success of the Cadbury's Perk and the Bru coffee ad that movie offers started pouring in. Having modeled for nearly 35 ads, her decision to act in films didn't come as a surprise. But unlike other models who dropped out of college to pursue their careers, Amrita preferred to thumb down film offers to complete her studies.
"Raj Kanwar saw that ad and got in touch with me for Ab Ke Baras opposite Arya Babbar, who was debuting in the film.” She continues, "Since Ab Ke Baras has a reincarnation theme and I get to portray two different characters in the film,I could not have asked for anything better.”
Rajkumar Santoshi approached Amrita after seeing her in a coffee ad but she turned down the film offer since she wanted to concentrate on her studies. Then came Legend of Bhagat Singh with the brief role of playing Bhagat Singh’s fiancé and Amrita agreed. “Few know about the sacrifice she makes by living as his widow even though they never marry. The character does leave its impact in the film."
Besides ‘Legend Of Bhagat Singh’ Amrita Rao was also seen in Ishq Vishq, Masti and Main Hoon Na. Fortunately for her, all the films became were a hit. Her latest release is Deewar with Akshaye Khanna.
Apart from acting, Amrita likes watching Sajid Khan’s shows and reading books that have stories in them. “Like recently I enjoyed reading Chitra Banerjee's book called Arranged Marriage. I also relish reading short stories written by Jeffery Archer”, she says.
Amrita cannot stand snobbish people and selfish behavior. On a blind date, she would love to go with Brad Pitt, but her secret ambition remains having a holiday in Venice on her own. But this one is not only beauty with brains but also a compassionate softhearted girl, who wants to become a social worker and help the mentally challenged kids. Her philosophy of life remains, “Life is short and sweet, so make others happy and never let anyone down”.
