Amrita Rao was born 7 June 1981 in Mumbai. She started her debut in the industry with the release of her first film Ab Ke Baras in 2002, and was subsequently nominated for the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award in 2003. Apart from this, she has done a number of hit films in her career including Vivah (2006), Jolly LLB (2013) and Main Hoon Na (2006). During her college days, Amrita Rao appeared in a number of commercials that marked the beginning of her career in cinema. Apart from bollywood, she also appeared in the Telugu film Athidhi in 2007. However, Amrita’s short career hasn’t been short of any controversies. In 2006, it is said that during the filming of the film Pyare Mohan, she would regularly get into catfights with Esha Deol, which led to her getting slapped by Esha Deol. Esha Deol later confirmed this slap on an interview. Apart from this, she has achieved much success in the industry, the most notable being the International Indian Film Academy Award for Star Debut of the Year, which she won for the movie Ishq Vishk (2003) and the ERTC Herald Global Award for among 50 most Inspirational Women of Maharashtra.
The CHDS – Radio Dil Se Team would like to wish her a very Happy Vaala Birthday! To mark this momentous occasion for such a remarkable personality, we will be having a Amrita Rao special from 10-11am EST and 5-6pm Est.
