While badi bahen continues to work in movies, the younger girl is all set to make her mark on the small screen after playing a minor role in Anil Kapoor’s 24
Amrita Rao has not made much of a noise in Bollywood after the sappy success of Vivaah co-starring a sweet-faced Shahid Kapoor. Of course there have been films like Welcome to Sajjanpur and Jolly LLB, apart from Main Hoon Na – where she played a carefully tailored role. Satyagraha was not a huge commercial success in spite of its star cast that included Amitabh Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor and Ajay Devgn, and Singh Saab the Great has just started its PR blitz. But Amrita, who tends to get typecast as the good desi girl because of her classical face and tiny build, is not giving up on films.
Her younger sister Preetika Rao seems to be learning from her didi’s…err…lack of super-success. She has played a part in Anil Kapoor’s 24 and is all set to make her debut as a lead actor on television with a new show on Colors made by Farhan Salaruddin.
This reportedly has the pretty Ms Rao playing a Muslim girl; buzz is strong that Harshad – no, not Chopra, but a newbie – will be the hero of this one. The new show is said to be replacing Bigg Boss 7 (once it ends, of course), along with Rang Rasiya, a new serial starring Sanaya Irani and Ashish Sharma.
