Amrita Arora is at her boisterous best when she’s walking the ramp. Movies apart, that’s the one thing that she really loves doing. Her eyes light up as she declares: "I just love the ramp.”
Having come a long way from modelling via veejaying to making her mark in
films, the dainty damsel can’t think of a life without movies. “Films have become an integral part of my life. I love Bollywood so much that I don’t think I can ever leave it for anything, not even if I get an offer abroad,” she says.
Of course, fan mails can be a real problem at times. “All that attention is enough to give anyone a high but sometimes it can get out of hand. Letter written in blood or kidnapping threats, for instance. But then I just laugh such things off,” says Amrita.
Having tried her hand at comedy earlier this year in David Dhawan’s Ek Aur Ek Gyarah, Amrita is now set to venture into Hinglish films with Tanuja Chandra’s new project, Stardust.
“I play a star in the movie and my co-star in the film is Rahul Khanna,” she says. Also on the cards are Shart - The Challenge, co-starring Tusshar Kapoor, and Mehsoos where Dino Morea is her co-star.
As far as music videos are concerned, Amrita isn’t excited at the prospect anymore. “I guess I have had my fill of music videos. After all, the movies have a much larger appeal and a fantastic, larger than life feel about them,” she explains.
Work takes up most of her time, of course, but the best way she can unwind after a hard day’s work is by “watching loads of TV and dancing hard”.
