Delicately boned with a face that can launch a million products, A student of psychology Amrita was always fascinated by acting, but never in her wildest dreams had she thought that one day she would pursue it - "Especially because I had no contacts in the film industry at all.
Having modeled for nearly 35 ads, her decision to act in films didn't come as a surprise. What came as a surprise was that unlike other models who dropped out of college to pursue their careers, Amrita Rao preferred to thumb down film offers to complete her graduation in psychology. And she has a word of advise for all those aspiring to make it big in this profession. "Don't be disillusioned and depressed if you don't get a worthy opportunity here. There are other fields you can excel in!"
Her first modeling assignment was for a fairness cream. It was the Close-up toothpaste ad that made her a familiar face in the ad world.
If the Close-up ad fetched her recognition, the Cadbury's Perk ad offered her platform to step into films. . Perk had the beautiful but hungry Amrita dressed in bridal attire eagerly waiting for the moon to be seen, but even before it appears her hubby hands her a perk that has a smiling with delight.
Amrita began her career with Raj Kanwar's Ab Ke Baras (2002). She was later seen in Rajkumar Santoshi's The Legend of Bhagat Singh but it was with Ken Ghosh's Ishq Vishk Pyaar Vyaar that she first tasted success. Filmmakers and the public have begun noticing her.
Two later films, Masti and Main Hoon Na, also did well at the box office. However, her recent movies have not done as well. She is currently working on Sooraj R. Barjatya's production, Vivah, opposite Shahid Kapoor.
Amrita likes to chill out at home in spare time. She is a complete home bird. She hates going to discos the blaring volume of music puts her off. She is a food freak. She likes coconut curry and rice.
