Even though she is visiting the holy city as part of UTV Stars' programme 'Star in the city', Bollywood actress Amisha Patel plans to use the godsent opportunity to get a feel of the real Punjab by meeting her hundreds of fans, take a round of Amritsar as a 'normal' tourist and savour the delicacies the holy city is known for the world over.
Attired in a yellow 'kurti' and orange 'salwar' matched with a bright pink 'dupatta', 'The Gadar' star told media persons on Monday, "UTV Stars in the City is a novel concept to bring stars closer to their fans. I visited Amritsar during the shooting of Gadar and some other movies also but never got a chance to roam around like a tourist in the holy city.
"I have heard a lot about the 'phulkari dupattas' and the 'sarson da saag' one gets to eat here. Now that since I am here, I am going to do a lot of shopping and taste all the food the city is famous for."
Pointing out that Amritsar was a nice place to visit and the locals were equally good, Amisha said that she was really looking forward to seeing the holy city.
"I love Punjabi movies. I have seen 'Jatt and Juliet' and 'Carry on Jatta'; I really liked these. In fact, I think, Bollywood producers, who have made remakes of hit southern films, should also start remaking Punjabi hits," she remarked.
She said she was excited to see audience reaction to her latest movie 'Shortcut Romeo' in which she is portraying a negative character for the first time.
"My next movie 'Desi Magic' has been produced by my own Amisha Patel Productions. I have essayed a double role in it: one of a Punjabi girl and another of a spoilt brat from the West. You will get to see farms, tractors and shades of Punjab in it," she signed off.
