‘BANARAS IS a mystic and holy city and my stay there gave me my share of spiritual experiences. I grew as a person and my inner being was pampered with the depth of the city.’

Actor Ashmit Patel shared this with reporters here today during his visit to INOX multiplex to promote his latest release ‘Banaras’. Ashmit said that Banaras had left an indelible impression on his mind. He narrated some miraculous and supernatural incidents that occurred to the unit of film ‘Banaras’ while shooting in the city of Banaras. Ashmit revealed that he goes more often to churches than to temples.

According to this young star, there was plenty to learn and adapt from the cast of the movie like Dimple Kapadia, Raj Babbar and Urmila Matondkar.

About the most successful genres in films, he said love stories do have repeat value. Talking of his very first movies, Ashmit accepted that Mahesh Bhatt would always have a place in his life and he would be available whenever the filmmaker needed him.

He cherishes the moment when he met the Dalai Lama. With a long way to go in film industry, Ashmit said he was not bothered about hits or flops, just about his performance. The actor likes to draw proper boundaries between personal and professional life.

After the press meet, Ashmit met the viewers in different auditoriums in INOX. He readily mingled with his fans and got snaps clicked with them. INOX general manager Lalit Ojha proposed the vote of thanks.
