Amrita made her Bollywood debut with 2002 film Ab Ke Baras. Sooraj Barjatya's Vivah, also starring Shahid Kapoor, remains her most popular film. She has also worked in Ishq Vishk, Shaurya, Main Hoon Na, Jolly LLB and was last seen in 2019 film, Thackeray.
On being asked if RJ Anmol actually asked her to quit films, Amrita told Times of India in an interview, “That’s true. At that point, Anmol could see I was declining some huge movie offers only because I wasn’t comfortable doing kissing scenes and lovemaking sequences on screen. Hence, he thought it was the right time to focus on exploring a beautiful personal life and tying the knot. He did ask me to quit my career and I was completely shattered. However, in a day or two, he told me that in hindsight, he realised that demand was unreasonable and that he was sorry about it.”
Amrita had not delivered any film since a few years before she tied the knot with RJ Anmol in a secret wedding ceremony in 2014. The two welcomed a baby boy in 2020 and named him Veer.
The couple recently revealed on their YouTube channel that they tied the knot in a secret wedding in 2014 to make sure that the wedding news didn't hamper her career. Anmol said in the video, “I thought that if we can keep our affair a secret for 4-5 years, can we not hide our marriage too.”
