Princess diary

She has three films lined up. And though her “petite shoulders are taking a lot of responsibility” Ameesha Patel is “loving every minute”. “I still think that I am the princess in a fairytale. I could not have asked for a better life,” said the actress, looking fetching in a floral-printed maxi dress from Milan. t2 chatted with Ameesha at the launch of Somi’s Glowz Spa in New Alipore.

What does being fit mean to you?

It is about being healthy from within… putting the correct food into your system. I don’t believe in crash diets. I am not a size zero person. I believe that a woman should have curves. But you need to eat healthy for that and have a balanced exercise-cum-diet regime. Drink a lot of water. It is very healthy to have a clean mind… clean thoughts.

What’s your workout like?

Well, I do try and work out three-four times a week. Except when I am working, it gets harder. I am not someone who gyms for three hours. It is 45 minutes to an hour… sensible workout. There are people who are obsessive about going to the gym. But they are actually doing the wrong kind of weights or cardio. You need to read the signals your body gives you... understand what your body requires. That will give you the best results.

Is slipping into a bikini, like you did in Lazy lamhe, challenging?

It is challenging. You are up by 5am, you do your hair and make-up and you are shooting from sunrise to sunset. Without eating or drinking water, liquids or juices, you cannot perform. I don’t want to face the camera looking thin but frail, tired and uninterested. So, I don’t starve.

If I had not drunk water for 14 days while shooting for Lazy lamhe, I’d be like Anna Hazare! It was a very difficult song to shoot. It was freezing cold in the pool. And hot when you came out. I was shivering. I actually had a 102-degree fever. Under those circumstances you cannot starve and you should not.

Have you ever followed a fancy diet?

Only once when someone told me to go on a watermelon juice diet. At the end of two days I had diarrhea. So, I don’t recommend these things to anybody (laughs).

So, what diet do you follow?

I eat healthy every two hours. In the morning, a wholesome breakfast; for lunch, dal, roti, sabzi, salads… an evening snack… fruits and then no carbs at night. Fill your plate with vegetables and soups, chicken, fish. But I also have my binge days when I eat chocolates.

When do you feel the fittest?

I feel great after a workout. Right now, I’m not feeling fit (smiles).

Your skin secrets…

Well, my grandmother was very beautiful… she passed away last year at 92 without a wrinkle on her face. She was stunning, radiant… a porcelain beauty. So, I guess 1/100th of her genes have passed on to me! I drink a lot of water. I take care of my skin by using good products, not tampering with it a lot, getting regular facials and clean-ups.

I never sleep with make-up on and even for my shoots, my make-up is minimal. I hate the cakey look. I feel like a different person with make-up on. Even now, I am dying to go back to my room and cleanse it off (laughs). I am someone who likes buying make-up but hates using it!

So, you love shopping for make-up the most?

I love shopping for bags and accessories the most. More than clothes. I pick them up when I am traveling. There are also these designer stores in Bombay who send me the newest arrivals at home because they know that they have a good customer whether it is (Louis) Vuitton, Jimmy Choo or Dior… I have them all on my BlackBerry!

So you’re a shopaholic!

Yes! Well, let’s say I do justice to the economy. Let’s say I elevate recession… in any part of the world (laughs)!

A beauty tip your grandmother taught you?

Mix besan, haldi, some dahi and milk and put it on your face. It cleanses your skin and gives you that glow. When I was in school and college and used to get that odd zit… I used to put sandalwood… from the mandir. They would be for the gods, but I would put it (laughs out loud). It would dry up the pimple.

How do you look after your hair?

Working in the sun, the light, blow-drying, rollers, straightening has not left my hair in its original state… but I do regular oil massages and use beaten egg once a month.

Finally, what films do we see you in?

Ameesha Patel Productions has signed on a comedy by David Dhawan and a romantic thriller-cum-drama by Priyadarshan. Both are 30-35 crore films.

I am also starting Race 2 with John (Abraham), Saif (Ali Khan), Deepika (Padukone), Anil Kapoor and Sonakshi (Sinha) next month. My role is steamy, saucy, smart and challenging… Race 2 is even bigger than Race. It has got more twists and turns… like a crazy game of chess, you don’t know who is going to make the next move.

Showbiz India TV Interviews Actress Amisha Patel

PART-1



PART-2

Ameesha at Somi's Glowz Spa Launch Event in Kolkata

Bollywood actress Amisha Patel, who is a football fan, is upset as she will not be part of history watching soccer star Lionel Messi along with his national teammates in a friendly match in the city Sep 2.

"I am so sad that I wouldn't be able to watch the match because of my prior commitments. Had the match been in Mumbai you could have found me in the stadium cheering like any other fan. I am a big fan of this lovely sport," said Amisha, who was here for the launch of Somi's Glowz Spa in South Kolkata's new Alipore area.

Argentina will take on Venezuela at the Salt Lake stadium here Sep 2 in the first ever FIFA official friendly international match in India. Argentina will also play Nigeria Sep 6 in Dhaka.

About the city, Amisha said: "I love this city, it's so vibrant and always on the move. People here are so loving and caring. But traffic here is just impossible. I thought only Mumbai traffic was bad but here it is worse."

The actress also said she loves to gorge on 'misti doi' and 'rossogolla' and this time too she has had a generous amount of the Bengali delicacies.

With Durga Puja round the corner, will she be here to grace the occasion?

"I would love to… I have heard so much about the Puja. It's the biggest festival here. It coincides with the Navratri celebrated in Maharastra with equal pomp."

Amisha salutes Anna

Bollywood starlet Amisha Patel has saluted activist Anna Hazare for his fight against corruption and hoped his efforts would yield the desired results.

"Whatever he is doing is great. I salute him for that. I sincerely hope and wish that all his fasting and protesting does yield the desired results," said Amisha on Tuesday.

Hazare's fast at New Delhi's Ramlila Maidan for a stringent anti-corruption law entered its eighth day on Tuesday.

Amisha, 36, who was here to launch a spa, scotched speculation that she was planning to foray into the small screen.

"Yes, I accept that the small screen is now no more small. Big and established stars are all joining the bandwagon. But for me it's a no. I have not been approached for any television programme as I am busy with my upcoming Bollywood projects," said she.

Amisha, who has shared screen space with major heroes like Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan, is yet to establish herself in the industry in spite of being part of two record breaking movies, ‘Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai’ and ‘Gadar-Ek Prem Katha" with Sunny Deol.

After her brother Asmit featured in the reality TV show ‘Bigg Boss’, there has been speculation of producers approaching her. "Yes, there are such rumors but let me make it very clear, I have not been approached for any TV show whatsoever."

About her upcoming projects, Amisha said: "There are four movies in the pipeline. One is directed by Priyadarshan and produced by my production house, then there is 'Race 2' by director-duo Abbas-Mustan, another directed by David Dhawan and one more yet undecided."

Ameesha @lakme Fashion Week


Friday, August 19, 2011

I don't belong to any camp: Ameesha Patel

Stunning as ever, Ameesha speaks exclusively to zoOm about her friendship with the Dutts, Khans, and of course, 'supposed' friend, Kangna

On her role reversal...
The industry went through a phase where a woman was nothing but a showpiece. It was all about 'Hit-the-gym', 'Get-into-a-bikini' and that became your role. I didn't want to do those roles. So it was for my passion for cinema and the will to do something different, that I turned to production.

On Salman helping with her new venture (production house)...
Not at all. Salman and I are only social friends and he's a well-wisher. But he didn't motivate me to start my production house. That's a rumor.

On casting Hrithik in her home-production...
If my directors feel that he even fits the role for a cameo, I'd love to approach him and cast him in my films. In the past, Hrithik and I have shared one of the best screen chemistry.

On industry camps...
I haven't been smart enough to attach myself to camps. I've done films with everyone - Ajay, Salman, Sanjay and Hrithik. But I don't really belong to any of their camps. Sure, they are friends, but I don't see myself as the part of their camps.

On being the odd-one-out...
Well, I wish I'd more knowledge about the industry when I was a newcomer. I was 'the outsider', because I came from a political and business background. Hrithik, Abhishek, Kareena, Esha, Fardeen...all of them were industry kids. They had a head start.

On her supposed 'friendship' with Kangna...
I don't know her at all. I think our supposed 'rift' was something she spoke about, printed and created for herself. I guess, sometimes people do things they don't realize, which turns out to be silly, for their own publicity. Recently, at Maanyata's birthday bash, Kangna was nowhere around and I was the one cutting the cake with her. "

To watch Ameesha's exclusive interview, tune in to B Tonite on Friday, August19 at 10pm, only on zoOm - India's No.1 Bollywood channel.

Ameesha at Indian's 64th Independence Day Celebration - Norwalk, L.A


NORWALK, Calif. — Patriotic tunes, the aroma of tasty Indian food, and an electric energy filled the air as nearly 10,000 people filled the outdoor fields at the former Excelsior High School here on the evening of Aug. 13 to celebrate the 64th anniversary of India’s independence.

For a second consecutive year, the evening’s festivities were jointly organized by the Federation of Indo-American Associations of Southern California and the United Federation of Indo-Americans of California.

With nearly 100 booths surrounding the center stage in a U-shape, and featuring a schedule of nearly 35 song and dance items, the evening-long cultural program had Indian Americans celebrating Aug. 15 along with the event’s grand marshal, Bollywood actress Amisha Patel.

Arriving moments after the cultural performances had ended, Patel circled the perimeter of the school grounds in a white Lexus convertible driven by FIA-SC advisory board member Ajmer Singh and escorted by sheriff’s deputies whil e thousands of people rushed to surround the car as it made its way around the field.

Later, the actress spoke of how proud she is of India’s current standing in the world, despite its relatively young age as a democratic nation.

“So many languages. So many different cultures. So many diverse people. This is exactly what India is, (and) they all live under one roof,” Patel said. “It’s amazing what India has achieved in such a short span. There are other countries, we know, who have earned independence around the same time (as India) but haven’t managed to achieve what India has.”

The leaders of the co-hosting organizations echoed similar sentiments.

“This showcase of merriment is synonymous to the sacrifice made by our valiant freedom fighters and national heroes before 1947, (all of whom) envisioned a tomorrow where freedom will prevail,” UFICA president Vineeta Vineet said.

FIA-SC president Rajinder Dhunna also paid tribute to the many freedom fighters who gave their lives in order for India to become an autonomous nation.

“We are celebrating our freedom tonight. We paid a dear price for our freedom. As you all may know, freedom is never free,” he said, citing statistical data that showed how India has become a world leader in many categories since breaking free of British rule in 1947.

A representative from Congressman Ed Royce’s office concluded the evening’s formal remarks.

Patel then formally led the event’s dignitaries in the hoisting of the Indian flag, the singing of the Indian and American national anthems and the traditional lamp lighting ceremony.

In addition to the hour-long formal program that featured introductions of all FIA-SC and UFICA board members and speeches from each group’s respective leaders, a vast majority of the attendees took in the sights and sounds of the evening’s cultural programs while intermingling among the many vendors who operated booths at the event.

The vendors included many local Indian-themed restaurants, jewelers and clothing stores. Some guests enjoyed sampling tea at the Tea India booth, while others swarmed a booth selling several unique flavors of Kulfi, the popular Indian dessert.

Several people danced the night away at a pair of booths featuring a deejay playing popular Bollywood and Bhangra tunes.

Booths operated by various clothing distributors were popular destinations for women who perused the selections of clothing or jewelry. Other booths featuring Indian dry snacks and spices were sold out before the conclusion of the event’s formal program.

For those seeking mental and physical peace of mind, one organization offered a free 20-minute acupuncture session.

Others paid visits to booths offering finance or insurance advice. A few vendors, such as the Krsna Culture Center of Cerritos and Buena Park, offered unique insights into cultural or religious issues.

A large booth promoting Lexus was located in the exact center of the field. Three Lexus models, including one used to escort Patel around the grounds, were on display in front of the booth.

The cultural program was essentially a variety show, with many talented individuals paying homage to India in a series of well-choreographed dance performances to popular Bollywood tunes, classical Indian dance melodies or goose-bump patriotic hymns.

When the stage was lit up by spectacular Bollywood, Bhangra or Kathak dance numbers, some well-tuned singers graced the microphone with some of the greatest songs representing India’s independence and subsequent birth of a nation. In all, the cultural program represented unique aspects of Indian song, dance and music.

In addition to the mela, both UFICA and FIA-SC also hosted a dinner banquet for Patel Aug. 12 at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. There, Patel was welcomed and treated to an evening of photos and mingling.
