Ameesha Patel, the Bollywood actress is currently all over social media platforms after huge success of her latest release Gadar 2 and it can easily be said that she is enjoying the attention she is getting by the media.
Ameesha has made quite a few controversial statements in the recent times and now in an interview, she has made a revelation that Hrithik Roshan confided in her when he was going through a tough phase after a grand debut. Hrithik and Ameesha debuted in Bollywood with Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai which was a blockbuster, after which Hrithik worked with some big directors of the industry such as Subhash Ghai, Yash Raj films and Suraj Barjatya but his movies tanked at the box-office.
Ameesha said, “He and I used to discuss this on set… On one Friday, Hrithik Roshan becomes the most powerful man after the PM in this country, and the next Friday, people are not accepting his films. What kind of world is this? But I think Hrithik is a demi-god, he’s a Greek god, he’s a superstar forever. Good talent can never be shaken.”
Ameesha further said that she was hurt when people started calling Hrithik one movie wonder. She said, “They said he’s a one-film wonder, and they began comparing him to previous one-film wonders. It’s such a sad tag to give to someone. And when I heard that announcement, three years later, of Rakesh uncle with Koi… Mil Gaya, I was like, ‘Now he’s going to come back’.”
She also talked about the time when her movie, Gadar: Ek Prem Katha stormed the box-office and Hrithik was upset over giving back-to-back flops. Ameesha said, “He used to be very disturbed, of course. Our first film was such a massive hit, of course the downfall is going to hit you harder. And he’s telling me, ‘But Ameesha, aapne toh dusri film Gadar de di, main flop de raha hoon aap Gadar de rahe ho’ (But you did Gadar and I gave flops). I told him not to worry, because the tables will inevitably turn.”
Well, Hrithik is one of the biggest stars of the industry now and it will be interesting to see whether he will react to this revelation by Ameesha Patel.
