The foreign hand in Amisha's 'The Rising' role
By Subhash K. Jha, IANS
The BBC unintentionally played a role in getting Amisha Patel a part in "The Rising". Film lead star Aamir Khan rooted for the actress after he saw her in a BBC programme and was impressed by her IQ level.
Amisha had done a segment of "Question Time India" on the channel.
She is thrilled at having bagged the role. "You know I was nearly finalised for 'Lagaan'. But finally they took Gracy because I was found to be too glamorous."
There is a rumour about Vikram Bhatt casting Amisha and her brother Ashmit together in a film about reincarnation.
To which Amisha diplomatically responds: "I hope someday a smart director will cash in on our combination. We're the only brother-sister combo in films."
