Amrita Rao’s male fans have been left stumped by her new avtaar. In her latest public appearances, she has appeared more stylish than ever before. When she stepped out to vote in Mumbai, for example, looking svelte in red cargo pants and a cropped jacket, she took everyone by surprise.
But the actress says that it is not an image makeover but simply a phase. “I’m constantly evolving. I can just say that I’m attuning myself to contemporary fashion, moulding myself to opportunities.”
Her fans are definitely not complaining and indeed, the list of her admirers is actually growing. “Oh yes! I keep a track of all that my fans say about me online. There is one site where a fan from London called Noni uploads everything I say within 5 minutes of my making a appearance.
I don’t know how,” she says.
Recalling the best thing a fan ever did for her, she says, “Once a fan did something really sweet for me. He came all the way from Nasik and literally lived outside my house from morning to night. When the security guard and my driver told me about this, I invited him to Film City and he was so happy.”
In the Capital to launch
the Vaseline Healthy White lotion, she says that her grandparents often get worried by reports of her link-ups in the papers. “They always ask me if there is any truth in the reports and I convince them there isn’t. Maybe it is the price I pay for being single,” says the actress who has been linked to Shahid Kapur, Hurman Baweja and Nikhil Dwivedi. “There is a time for every thing, I would rather let the mystery unfold. Love is unplanned,” she says.
The producer-multiplex row has stalled the release of her film
, in which she stars opposite Akshaye Khanna and Arshad Warsi. But the actress prefers to see the positive side of the situation. “By the time the film releases, people would be so parched for entertainment they’ll all rush to theatres...so I am not worried.”
