I never left this industry: Ameesha Patel

By Hindustan Times

“Comebacks are for the actors who get married and have kids and then plan to come back. I never left this industry. I have always been here. My last film was Chatur Singh 2 Stars (2011). The film didn’t do well, so maybe people didn’t know about it,” says Ameesha. An “outsider” for Bollywood,
Ameesha says politics is a part of the Hindi film industry.

She had a dream debut in 2000 with Kaho Na... Pyaar Hai, but Hrithik Roshan, son of filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, stole the limelight. That didn’t deter Ameesha. Kaho Naa...Pyaar Hai was a blockbuster and Ameesha also went on to win critical praise for her performance in Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. The successes since have been few.

“I have always been a very positive person. I don’t come from a film background and it is a new world for an outsider,” the 37-year-old says.
