Amisha Patel (born 9 June 1976) is an Indian actress who works in Bollywood movies. She was born in Mumbai. She is an alumna of the Cathedral and John Connon School where she was head girl for the academic year 1992-1993.

Amisha Patel is the daughter of Amit Patel and Asha Patel, sister of Ashmit Patel and the granddaughter of the famous Indian lawyer Rajni Patel. She received a degree in Economics from Tufts University, Medford, Massachusetts, US. She also studied classical Indian Bharatnatyam dance.

Her name Amisha was derived from the first three letters of her father's name Amit and the last three letters of her mother's name Asha. Her brother Ashmit's name was also derived similarly first three letters of his mother's name Asha and the last three letters of his father's name Amit.

A student of Bharatanatyam, an Indian classical dance form, Amisha Patel appeared in Satyadev Dubey's several theatre productions honing up her acting skills. Her Bollywood acting career started quite by accident when she stumbled across Rakesh Roshan at a party in Mumbai. Impressed by her angelic beauty and having learned that she is the daughter of his friend, Amit Patel, Rakesh Roshan immediately offered her a lead role, a love interest of hero Hrithik Roshan in "Kaho Na Pyar Hai".

She made her debut in the hit film Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000). The film made her a star overnight. She appeared next in the surprise success, Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. These two successes were followed by a series of films that did badly at the box-office. Critics said that she was a mediocre actress. However, she received good reviews for her work in Aamir Khan's recent hit film, The Rising (2005).

When the movie was released in 2000 it became one of the biggest hits in Indian cinema while she got widespread attention throughout the nation and became an instant celebrity. Next followed her "Gadar: Ek Prem Katha" in 2001, which also became a blockbuster hit.

Both the films won her several awards for her wonderful acting abilities. With her theatrical background she proved that she is an actress par excellence with intense acting abilities and proved her talent in several movies thereafter. She has acted in more than 25 films as of 2007.

Personal Life

While she is making waves as an actress, her personal life is mired in misunderstandings and court wrangling involving her family members. Amisha Patel is dating Vikram Bhatt, Bollywood director. Vikram Bhatt is the brother of Mahesh Bhatt, another renowned Bollywood director. She earlier dated Wan Lee, an oil magnate during her modeling days.

Her name is a blend of Ami[t] and [A]sha, the first names of her parents. She was raised by her grandmother Nani. She grew up speaking three Indian dialects, Hindi, Gujrati and Marathi -- sometimes in the same sentence.

Trivia of Amisha Patel:

  • Granddaughter of barrister politican, Rajni Patel.
  • Won gold medal for an Economics paper at her university.
  • Obtained Biogenetic Engineering degree in the United States.
  • Economic graduate from Tufts University, Boston
  • Attended Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. Studied Economics and graduated as part of the class of 1997.
  • Indian model
  • Daughter of Asha Patel and sister of Ashmit Patel
  • Her nickname is Angel.
  • Both Amisha and her brother Ashmit's names contain the names of their parents.

  • You should never be scared to achieve your dreams 'coz dreams do come true!
  • Do believe in your dreams 'coz dreams do come true.
  • Richard Gere is my dream date
  • If someone talks bad about me it only goes to show that the person feels insecure. I don't manipulate. I don't carry dabbas for directors.
  • Even if I wasn't an actress and I walked into a party with friends, I'd still have men gaping at me and undressing me in their minds.
  • I feel French is very close to Urdu. Both languages are beautiful. Sadly, their beauty is lost in translation.
  • When I arrived and looked at the destruction from the tsunami, I told myself, 'We're not going to be able to make an impact in two and a half weeks.' But after we were through, I knew we had left a lasting impression.
  • People bring you up so fast...But they bring you down even faster.
  • I love human beings. I believe that there is so much to learn from every person you meet including a child.
  • About Friends, Family & Co-Stars
  • Had I not made it big, my family would have told me to recheck my decision. Now that I am successful, there is no way. They have to accept it gracefully.
  • I'm lucky that I haven't been left out in the cold like Anjala Jhaveri or Meghna Kothari.
  • Kareena and Aishwarya are beautiful, and talented. But it hurts when I lose a project to them because I'm equally qualified.
  • If you see Hrithik and me shooting together, you will notice that the chemistry has only gotten better. We are lot more comfortable with each other.
  • I didn't bad mouth anybody. It's just that when I saw the film, I felt that the film was totally made for Hrithik.
  • I wish I were half as hot and talented as Bipasha. It’s because of her physical appearance that she’s getting the kind of roles going her way and I’m doing those that require delicate looks.
  • As far as Karan Johar’s show is concerned, it has to be taken with a pinch of salt. I think that was more of a fun show than anything else. I’ve taken whatever that was said on it in my stride and just laughed it off. None of it has affected me at all and I don’t hold anything against anyone.
  • We were children together… now the child I knew, has a child. Such a long journey… in such a short time, now they embark on another journey. A journey of parenthood. I wish them all the best. Sussanne and Hrithik are beautiful people and now the most beautiful thing has happened to them. - On Hrithik after son Hrehaan was born
  • Films & Career
  • Films were never on my agenda, may be it was written in my destiny. And since I am here, I would like to give it my best try.
  • I am happy I have competition. It keeps me on my toes all the while and stops me from becoming complacent. So, it works to my advantage.
  • Kaho Naa... was a love story and a love story needs a girl as much as it needs a boy, right?
  • I would never deny the importance of the media, but I wouldn't go out of the way to splash my pictures all over town. I'd rather let my work do the talking.
  • I don't mind an item number like "Kajra Re" from Bunty Aur Babli, it's done well and the song seems like a whole lot of fun. But if I did a "Khallas," my career would also be Khallas with it!
  • I don't want to have to sit with my kids, 10 or 15 years down the line, watching my old films and knowing this is how I got it.
  • No one wants to touch you, if you don't have a film background. Which is why outsiders like me have to work doubly hard to get noticed.
  • I will prove myself with my hard work and I’m confident that I’d be able to do a lot of good work in the film industry.

Kareena Kapoor (Actor)
I thought she was smashing in Gadar. I even called her up to tell her that. But her mobile is always on voice mail.

Rakesh Roshan (Director)
Amisha is a good dancer, she was confident from day one. She is very talented. The whole unit wondered how she could perform so well without any formal training or background.

Rocky S
She looked gorgeous in Humraaz and the saris she wore became quite a rage. She can carry off both western and Indian clothes very well but I prefer her in western outfits. And now that she has lost a few kilos, she’s looking like a million bucks in all my clothes.

Sunny Deol (Actor)
Amisha's a nice girl and extremely talented. We got along well.

Tanuja Chandra (Director)
She is urban so she has that crossover look. She wants to get somewhere and works with an extraordinary zeal and determination.
