After a brief lull, Ameesha Patel is back in news. Starting off with the bad news, Patel’s Juhu house has been wrecked by none other than her tenants. It was difficult for her to manage her house all alone, so while she was abroad she decided to rent the house and after 18 months she came to know that her entire house has been ripped apart. “The sofa covers were ripped, tables were broken; the air conditioners were not serviced at all. The curtains had holes in them and the geyser, lamps and the taps in the washrooms were broken beyond repair and the fans and fuses were destroyed. The marble in the kitchen was stained. The state of the penthouse shocked Ameesha,” said a source. Patel has asked them to pay for the damages and something is being worked out, even though it means a loss of a couple of lakhs since she’s working on renovating the venue.
Coming to the good news, the ‘Lazy Lamhe’ babe said marriage will not happen for the next two years, “Marriage could be on the cards, but right now, it is time to focus on our respective careers.” The actress claims that she’s not ready to give up work yet, and that she still wants to face the camera, “Work is my worship. I can’t dream of not being in front of the camera. I’m only married to my work. Marriage is the farthest from my mind. I haven’t seen Kanav in two months and won’t be able to for at least another couple of months. But it’s okay. Work first. All else can wait,” she says. She also added that she has a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend Kanav Puri, “It’s fun to e-mail and wait for calls. We also use the Blackberry messenger. We work very hard so when we get a few days together we value them. We also Skype sometimes. Kanav is in London so, I have no distraction. I can only focus on work.”
Patel’s plate is full of work at the moment; she has two films in her kitty this year. Run Bhola Run with Govinda, which releases in October, will see Patel in a very pivotal role. The film is a comic thriller about two convicts, Govinda and Tusshar Kapoor, who try and get out of jail to get hold of her. Her next release, Chatur Singh Two Star, is an action comedy that will see her play Sanjay Dutt’s ladylove who helps him solve his mysteries.
Last but not least, after five long years, Ameesha has finally patched up with her brother Ashmit and it was reported that both were spotted watching Love Aaj Kal at PVR Juhu, incidentally on the special day of Raksha Bandhan. Ameesha said, “It’s a personal matter and I do not wish to discuss it.” But she did add, “Yes, I went to PVR on Tuesday night to see the posters of Ashmit’s new film Toss.” Now we hope Ameesha takes a step further and reconciles with parents.
