She made her debut in 2002 with Raj Kanwar's Ab Ke Baras. Yet, in her five year career, Amrita Rao is still known as the Main Hoon Na girl. She'll be hoping her Friday release, Vivah, opposite Shahid Kapoor, changes all that.
Priyanka Jain caught up with Amrita as the actress spoke about her film, director Sooraj Barjatya, and marriage. Excerpts:
What is Vivah about?
The film speaks about more than just two people falling in love with each other. It's about the depth and purity between a man and woman relationship which Soorajji has captured well. It's all about values, tradition, and commitment that is not so common in today's generation. People who have seen the rushes of the film say, 'it's so nice to see a boy give so much respect to the girl.' The influence will be good for the children.
