Normally stars shift from smaller to bigger apartments but Amisha Patel will be shifting from a bigger to a smaller one soon. Amisha is in the process of finalising a deal with which she can shift to her new home in Juhu in a month.
Talking about moving from her larger 4BHK penthouse apartment in 10th road, Juhu Scheme, to a smaller 2BHK in the same area, Amisha admits, "Though my apartment in Juhu was very large with a terrace, I will be shifting into a smaller one soon. It's very difficult to maintain a large home on one's own.
I love cleanliness and like to do everything myself, so I want to stay in a smaller home, a 2 bedroom one. Smaller apartments are easier to keep clean especially with my hectic lifestyle. I have almost finalised the new apartment." However Amisha is not selling off her penthouse, "I may rent it out but won't sell it."
Amisha will also be doing the interiors of her house herself. "I had done the interiors and decoration of the Juhu penthouse myself and will do the new one too. I am not taking any stuff from my old home but will be refurbishing it completely. It's stressful to design and start from scratch; but I love picking up small knick-knacks and stuff from all over the world on my own and decorating my apartment and giving it my own unique style."
On the work front, the actress has just signed a film with Sanjay Dutt. "It's a comedy and has got the scope of becoming a rage like the Munnabhai series. There's a modern, comic side to my character. This year I am doing plenty of comedy – there's Sanju's film, Neeraj Vohra's Run Bhola Run and the Yash Raj film with Saif. It's a feel good film where I have a comic role. It's great because I like comedy."
Amisha was recently hospitalised because of acute food poisoning. She brushes it off, "I was hos-pitalised for the night and put on saline. I suffered from a bad bout of gastro. I had eaten prawns during my Yash Raj shoot in Alibaug. I am allergic to fish. 24 hours later, I started vomiting and got severe cramps. I ignored it till things became worse. When it didn't stop at 3.30 am, everyone panicked and took me to Arogya Nidhi hospital in Juhu." Amisha has a delicate stomach. "I love junk food like bhelpuri and sevpuri and normally I survive. If I don't get gastric attacks, I break out into boils and rash but I'm okay after a few anti-allergy pills."
