Amisha Patel did much to rebuild her career in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. Now, she’s taken one step further with an exciting new photoshoot for the magazine Man’s World. American-educated Amisha once worked for Morgan Stanley, which recently lost its investment banking status and became a standard deposit-baring bank.
Amisha became a star overnight in 2000, thanks to her performance in Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai, for which she won a Best Female Debut Award. She followed this with many other excellent roles including Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, which won her a Special Performance Award; the underated Elaan; the excellent Mangal Pandey: The Rising; Ankahee, in which she played the role of a mute girl, learning sign language in order to do so; Bhool Bhulaiyaa and Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd.
Amisha is currently working on Run Bhola Run opposite Govinda and Chatur Singh Two Star with Sanjay Dutt. Amisha has been a top actress now for nearly ten years. What’s kept her at the top? “My versatility is my USP,” she says. “I can play a school girl, a mother and a seductress with equal ease, I hate any man who tries too hard to impress or whose swagger says, ‘Look At Me’.”
