Hrithik Roshan and Ameesha Patel became sensations overnight after the huge success of Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai. The duo was loved for their irresistible chemistry. Off-screen, however, things were portrayed differently by media houses. It was Ameesha’s wealthy background that got her a bit of negative attention.
Ameesha comes from a wealthy Gujarati family. There were then reports that the actress is quite arrogant and has attitude because of her wealth. Things got even worse when she was compared to her first co-star Hrithik Roshan for their wealth. Recently, Ameesha spilled it all, and below is everything you need to know.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Ameesha Patel said: “I was portrayed as arrogant and snobbish and this typical rich brat from South Bombay. Because on the sets I wouldn’t indulge in useless gossip and whining about people or talk them out. Someone else has a hit, I’d always be happy he or she did a great job.”
Ameesha Patel talked about the comparison made between her and Hrithik Roshan, saying: “I always read a book. I am a bookworm. I can read a book in three days. So I was always told that Ameesha ji is very arrogant , pata nahi apne aap ko kya samajhti hai (Don’t know what she thinks of herself). Just because she comes from a big khandaan, she arrived in a Mercedes on the first day of the shoot. They joked that Hrithik in a Maruti came, Ameesha in a Mercedes. But there was nothing to show off. That was my upbringing, my hobby. I was never raised to talk bad or bad about anyone.”
On the work front, Ameesha Patel will next be seen in the Gadar sequel.
