Everybody has a 'thing'. You know, something that you're fixated with or something that you simply detest. Amisha Patel's 'thing' is soaps.
The actress possesses over 500 bars of soap collected from all over the globe!
Currently the actress is in Norway attending a film festival and needless to say she's going to pick up some more of that soapy stuff there.
Says Amisha, "I adore sweet-smelling soaps; it's part of my cleanliness fetish. I have loads of shower gels and bath bombs too. I buy them from all over the world.
They are mostly handmade soaps that you can buy by weight, so I have heart-shaped soaps, flower-shaped soaps, Snoopy and Garfield soaps and many more in various shapes, sizes, colours and fragrances."

Apparently, the actress keeps eight different bars of soap in her bathroom, as she likes to have a bath with a variety of soaps each day! Talking about her favourites in the collection, she says, "Roger Gallet from Paris and Chanel are my favourite soaps. I also love soaps from Bath&Body Works and Lush."
Currently, Amisha is visiting Norway as the guest of honour at a film festival. "It's the Norway Film Festival at Oslo. They've been inviting me for three years and this year I finally made it.
They've previously showed Gadar and Humraaz. This year, they are showing Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd. After the festival, I'm taking a Scandinavian cruise to Copenhagen. I hear it's simply stunning! I'll be here a week after which I will travel to London for a few days."
