An Economics graduate from Massachusetts, Ameesha Patel started her career with two blockbusters KAHO NAA PYAAR HAI and GADAR - EK PREM KATHA, both being quintessential masala affairs. Now that she is turning producer by making a film each with Priyadarshan and David Dhawan, she is sure that entertainment would be the key word for these productions as well. She also reaffirms that none of her newer ventures would be frivolous by any means.
"Films that I am making with David (Dhawan) and Priyan would boast of a certain standard; there would be an educated class to it. I think now is the best opportunity for me to fuse my education and upbringing. Also, there would be good budget set aside for both these films. If I am getting into the production arena, it better be a classy and grand affair; there won't be any cutting corners here," says Ameesha.
While it is believed that both her films would be reasonably expensive affairs, Ameesha states that there is no hard and bound rule that she has set for herself for the future projects that she would undertake.
"These two films are being mounted on a huge scale because the subject demands that. However tomorrow if something interesting comes up that can be justified to be finished within 5-10 crores itself, I won't mind that. Eventually I have to make sure that the subject is good and it is viable enough to be made in a certain kind of budget. I am educated enough to make such decisions while being practical," Ameesha talks business here.
While at least one of the two films is expected to go on floors this year, both would feature Ameesha as the leading lady and would release before end of next year.
