Hardly a handful of films old, Amrita Rao already has two superhits, MAIN HOON NA, VIVAAH and three hits, ISHQ VISHK, MASTI and WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR listed in her resume. Most of the roles that she essayed were performance oriented ones, in which the producers used her girl next door, innocent and demure looks and thus she sort of got caught up in that image.

However, it appears that Amrita, like all actresses, wants to prove her versatility, and so is trying her level best to break free of the pretty girl next door image. The first movie where we got to see her in mini skirts and a sexy 'avatar' was MY NAME IS ANTHONY GONSALVES. The E. Niwas directed venture, which was also the debut film of the Shah Rukh look alike (of DEEWANA days) Nikhil Dwivedi, sank without a trace and thus Amrita's first attempt at turning glam went kaput. But the never say die attitude of Amrita saw her returning once again in a glamorous makeover in the recently released, SHORT KUT-THE CON IS ON. Unfortunately even that proved to be a debacle. But, the film industry, which is quite apathetic to failures, has fortunately given Amrita another chance. And we now have a third film, Abbas-Mustan's LIFE PARTNER, starring ex-comedy king Govinda, Tusshar Kapoor, Genelia D'Souza and of course Amrita Rao .
Since the film is being produced by Abbas-Mustan, the required glam quotient is naturally present and so there is a scope for Amrita to break free from her image, and present her 'sexy' side successfully. And we will come to know about it when the film releases on August 14.
While on LIFE PARTNER, Amrita Rao essays an extended special appearance in the film.
