The Race 2 babe admits she was going through a bad phase, but feels that the good times are back. Has Ameesha spoken too soon?
After tasting unbelievable overnight success with her debut film, Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai with Hrithik Roshan, the petite babe Ameesha Patel has delivered only one big hit at the box office in over a decade. Sunny Deol’s much popular 2001 drama Gadar: Ek Prem Katha was the only film after KNPH that Ameesha can really be proud of. Though she was seen in an item number here or a vamp-ish performance there, never did the gal get a meaty role that made us sit up and notice of her. But now the 37-year-old actor believes that her bad phase is over. “I think as a person and as an actress everyone goes through a phase. Nothing has remained stagnant in my life. My good time is back. I am happy and excited about it. Desi Magic is a wonderful film. It showcases me in a double role for the first time. It is the most challenging role of my career till now,” said Ameesha at the promotional launch of her forthcoming venture.
She is also optimistic about the production company she’s launched with friend and business partner, Kuunal Goomer. The two are all set produce three movies soon – Sunny Deol starrer Bhaiyyaji Superhit, Neil Nitin Mukesh’s romantic thriller titled Shortcut Romeo, and Desi Magic where Ameesha plays a double role.
We think Ameesha should try for a good script instead of churning out more movies which very often than not sink at the BO without a trace. Tell us BollywoodLifers if Ameesha has it in her to keep you hooked in the days to come?
