Amisha Patel rose to fame through Rakesh Roshan"s Kaho Na Pyaar Hai (2000). Now, nine years after she forayed into films, this Mumbai girl is all set to spread her charms in Sandalwood, revamped and more beautiful.
Amisha, who has already acted in a few South Indian films, is rumoured to be the heroine in the remake of the Telugu hit Athanokkade. Debutant Naveen will direct the film and the hero will be a newcomer. The film will be launched on Ugadi day and shooting will begin in April.
Amisha"s career, which started in 2000, was not a smooth ride. Her first two films (Kaho Na Pyaar Hai and Gadar) were huge hits but she hit the low point in 2002 after a series of her films flopped. The slump continued till 2006 when she came out with a brillaint performance in Ankahee. The bikini act in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic (2008) has brought media attention towards her again. The fabulous-looking Amisha, who toned up her body for the film, stole the hearts with an excellent performance as the dumped girlfriend of Saif Ali Khan.
