Amisha Patel, invited by Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh to participate in the Lucknow Festival, claims her parents swindled her and she's not ashamed of the case she's filed against them.

Are you in love with Bollywood director Vikram Bhatt?
Yes, he's very special to me.

What exactly do you mean by that?
I love him. He was there for me when I needed him the most.

Any plans to marry Bhatt?
It's too early to get married to anyone. I don't have immediate plans for matrimony because it could affect my career as an actress. However I will get married after five or six years. At the moment I am only interested in making lots of money.

Why are you so desperate to make money?

The reason is quite simple - my parents have swindled me and there's very little cash left in my bank accounts.

Any regrets about suing you parents for financial fraud?
Why should I feel ashamed? My money belongs to no one but me and not even my parents have the right to take it away. In fact, my grandmother is supporting me. My parents have fooled her too.

Have you thought about withdrawing the case?
No, not right now.

What's your opinion about Amar Singh since you are in Lucknow at his invitation?
I respect him a lot. It was on his invitation that I came to perform at the ten-day Lucknow Festival. He's a much-respected figure in the film industry.
