Director: Rajshree Ojha

Rating: ***

She is shown moaning in pain at a salon in the movie and shaping her eyebrows also seems to be alien to the girl. Amrita is a model, who acted in many plays and has no connection with film industry. She is the daughter of the head of HDFC Bank. Coming from such a corporate background, her decision of acting had faced some apprehensions.

The Mumbai girl Amrita said, “My dad said there is no security in acting career and it is not considered a long-term career option”.

Amrita was a student of Bombay Scottish School and the St Xavier’s College. She added, “I completed my post graduation in mass communications and then had sometime in an ad agency. After this, when I approached my dad, he said if you are so determined then go ahead”.
