Amee­sha slams Sub­hash Ghai

Business Sphere - - Amisha Patel -

Of late Amee­sha Pa­tel has been dis­play­ing an ex­cep­tion­ally ag­gres­sive and de­fen­sive stance in her press in­ter­views. But what hap­pened dur­ing a ra­dio in­ter­view on Tues­day to pro­mote her new film Short­cut Romeo le her costar Neil Nitin Mukesh stumped and also caused con­sid­er­able of­fense to Sub­hash Ghai. Dur­ing the course of the chat on ra­dio, Amee­sha spoke about how she was ousted from Sub­hash Ghai’s 2001 film Yaadein fea­tur­ing Hrithik Roshan and Ka­reena Kapoor, due to filmy pol­i­tics. Amisha didn’t stop there. She went on to ex­press re­lief and hap­pi­ness at her al­leged ouster, con­sid­er­ing how the film fi­nally turned out. The re­mark im­me­di­ately trig­gered off a chain of of­fended sen­si­bil­i­ties. Says a mem­ber of the team that ac­com­pa­nied the ac­tors, “When Amee­sha said this, we were all shocked. Neil didn’t know where to look. His whole face went red. Ac­tors as a rule don’t talk about the roles that they don’t do, and that too in a gloating tone cel­e­brat­ing the said film’s fail­ure. Be­sides, if Amee­sha lost Yaadein to Ka­reena didn’t Amee­sha re­place Ka­reena in Kaho Na... Pyar Hai?” As for Sub­hash Ghai he chose the path of a dig­ni­fied si­lence, re­fus­ing to re­act to an ac­ri­mo­nious salvo that seems to have come 12 years too late.
