Happy Birthday Amrita Rao! 7 Songs to Show I Love You!

Amrita has been a bit forgotten lately (at least since she got married), but she was part of some great films.  And some great songs.  So why not celebrate that as she turns 36?

1.1. Amrita’s first major film role was an interesting one, Bhagat Singh’s abandoned fiancee.  It worked well with her fresh young look.


2.  Remember back when “Shamrita” was up there with SRKajol?  Okay, maybe not SRKajol, but at least as popular as Sakshay?  There was just something about these two baby faced kids, even in a not-very-good campus sex farce/romance.


3.  And then came Main Hoon Na!  In which you did a very good job with your role, and most of all, worked really really hard!  Your intro song is probably one of the most difficult songs ever done by a heroine (almost one single take!) and you nailed it!


4. And “Gori Gori”, in which you matched steps and sparkle with Sushmita Sen.


5.  Main Hoon Na was the biggest hit you were a part of, but you were not the main character there (although it was a major part).  No, the biggest hit to your name in which you can share at least half the credit is Vivah.


6. Vivah was also the return of Shamrita, what is the final return (so far), and probably their most romantic pairing.


7.  And Vivah let you have the funnest series of costume changes!

    • I just started seeing buzz about this movie, and I am so curious about it! Biopics are so rare in Indian film in general, and a biopic of an older politician is extremely odd.

      • Hey can you do a post about the movie Sachin:a billion dreams. I know you don’t know much about cricket but it talks about the whole life journey as kid to a most successful cricketer of all time while facing challenges. He carried the dream of billion Indians.


        • I’d love to write a post on it! But I missed it in theaters, so that will have to wait until it hits a streaming service. Keep reminding me.

    • She is cute! I kind of feel like her career slowed down when she got too old to be just “cute” any more.

        • She was in Satyagraha, but in a fairly small part. She also has a remarkably forgettable face, I find. Kind of too symmetrical or something. I have the same problem with Dia Mirza.

  1. I didn’t mind Amrita, but she debuted at a time that Bipasha, Priyanka and others were not afraid to do vampy roles with a bit of skin show. She obiously wasn’t into that.
    Also who is Sakshay? Akshay and?


    • Akshay and Saif! They were quite the “ship” once upon a time. And good point about Amrita not really fitting in with the new sexy heroines.
