I have been approached by many political parties over the last seven years to contest. People are keen that I enter politics. They feel I have a headstart as my grandfather Rajni Patel was Indira Gandhi's right- hand man and an eminent politician. I was very close to him as a child. Automatically there was pressure on me to enter politics people would say, 'yeh dadaji ke baad ayegi' but right now I am busy with my film career and have no time to breathe."
However Amisha doesn't completely dismiss the idea of becoming a politician later. She says, "I will be interested in entering politics in a couple of years perhaps, but not right now. Right now, I am too young and inexperienced."
The actress feels that India today needs young, educated politicians like Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Vadhera. "We need young politicians to make a difference to society but before committing to it, I want to gain some experience and knowledge in politics. Right now, I have declined offers from all parties. My lack of experience and age that has led me to opting out now."
