Amrita Rao Family

Amrita Rao Family

Amrita Rao was born on June 7, 1981, to Deepak Rao and has a younger sister, Preetika Rao, who is also an actress. Amrita Rao’s Mother is Kanchan Rao. Amrita Rao comes from a Konkani Family. Amrita Rao’s father owns an advertising agency. Amrita Rao is married to Anmol Sood popularly known as RJ Anmol. Amrita Rao and Anmol Sood said they married in a private ceremony in 2014. This was done to ensure that Amrita's career was not jeopardized by the wedding news. However, Amrita Rao and RJ Anmol made their wedding public on the date 15 May 2016. It was their mutual decision to keep the marriage date a secret.


Amrita Rao Affairs and Relationships

Actress Amrita Rao and her husband, Radio Jockey Anmol, the couple claimed that they wed in 2014 in a private ceremony but made their wedding public on the date 15 May 2016. You've probably seen a lot of RJs interviewing Bollywood stars up to this point, but have you ever heard of the relationship between an RJ and an actress? Your response will most likely be ‘no’ because it is typically thought to be extremely unlikely to occur in Bollywood. Amrita Rao, the ‘Vivaah’ girl, and RJ Anmol's love story, on the other hand, is completely the reverse of this and appears to be very intriguing. The first time Amrita and Anmol met was in a radio studio about 14 years ago, in the year 2008. Although Anmol did not question Amrita during their initial meeting, he made sure to obtain her contact number through any methods possible. Anmol was similarly successful in this quest and was able to get Amrita's contact number during their very first encounter. However, following their initial meeting, none of them spoke to the other for a year because they were both so preoccupied with their different work lives.


However, it is considered that God himself creates some couples, which is why they were connected to one another in some way. The same thing happened to Amrita and Anmol when they met again owing to some work obligations, and subsequently, they both began dating. Anmol claimed that Amrita had a very kind and affable character, which was the major reason he admired her so much and fell in love with her. In reality, Amrita and Anmol did not even disclose their connection to anyone and kept it hidden from the public for close to seven years. They recently welcomed a newborn boy and are currently both are content to be married to each other. RJ Anmol and Amrita Rao desire to keep their romance private. The couple prefers to keep their private lives out of the public eye, whether it be their wedding or Amrita Rao’s pregnancy. The audience was startled by their wedding announcement in 2016, and then by reports of their pregnancy in 2020, when Amrita was nine months pregnant.


Amrita Rao Career

Amrita Rao Career

Amrita Rao started modelling for certain advertisements in addition to her college education. Raj Kumar Santoshi saw her in a Perk advertisement and approached her about a role, but she declined since she wanted to focus on her education. However, the director was too kind to give her another part in the film The Legend of Bhagat Singh, claiming that it would only take 5 days to shoot because the part was so brief, to which Amrita quickly consented. After completing her studies, she made her acting debut in the 2002 film Ab Ke Baras, which was released prior to The Legend of Bhagat Singh. The movie was not successful. But Ishq Vishk, written by Ken Ghosh, made her a star in 2003.


In the film, Amrita Rao starred opposite Shahid Kapoor. She made appearances in popular films like Main Hoon Na and Masti in 2004. In 2005, the films Shikhar and Vaah! Life Ho To Aisi, which starred Shahid Kapoor, were both box office duds. However, she made a comeback in the 2006 Shahid Kapoor romantic drama Vivah, which was directed by Sooraj Barjatya. It turned out to be her signature film in which she portrayed an ideal girl who was marriage material. Amrita Rao made her Telugu cinema debut in 2007 with Mahesh Babu, a legendary actor in the language. She had a cameo in the title song of the 2008 Hindi film Heyy Babyy. Amrita Rao received a great deal of praise from critics for her performance in the Shyam Benegal-directed film Welcome to Sajjanpur in 2008. The movie was shown at a global film festival.


The box office performance of her films My name is Anthony Gonsalves (2008), Victory (2009), Shortcut (2009), and Love U...Mr. Kalakaar! (2011) was all awful. Amrita Rao later made an appearance in Jolly LLB, a movie that won a National Award (2013). Amrita Rao then acted in movies including Thackeray (2019), Satyagraha (2013), and Singh Saab the Great (2013). In 2009, Amrita Rao made an appearance as the Judge on the reality programme Perfect Bride. With the 2016 television series Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai, Amrita Rao made her TV acting debut. Amrita Rao was identified by M. F. Husain as his second inspiration, and the actress's work in the film Vivah inspired numerous of his paintings.

Amrita Rao Controversies


Amrita Rao - Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao were rumoured to be secretly dating back in 2006. Shahid was in a relationship with Kareena Kapoor at the time, but gossipmongers were busy linking him to his Vivah co-star Amrita. Several speculative stories about Shahid and Amrita had surfaced on the internet, and while neither of them paid much attention to it, their rumoured affair had become quite a talking point. During an interview, Amrita was asked if her previous relationship with Shahid had 'embarrassed' her, and she decided to clear the air once and for all. They were ‘not even friends,’ she claimed. In fact, Shahid is just a ‘good colleague’ to her, and they have tremendous respect for each other.


Amrita Rao - Esha Deol

Amrita Rao and Esha Deol had previously collaborated on the 2006 film Pyare Mohan. While they both played shy, demure girls on-screen, they disliked each other off-screen. They were soon involved in a catfight that turned as ugly and as bad as you can imagine. According to reports, Amrita made some nasty comments about Esha on the set. The latter slapped the former in a fit of rage. ‘Yes, I slapped Amrita,’ Esha Deol said. She abused me in front of my director, Indra Kumar, and my cameraman one day after pack-up, which I thought was completely inappropriate. In the heat of the moment, I slapped her to protect my self-respect and dignity. I have no regrets because she deserved it for her behaviour toward me at the time. All I did was stand up for myself and my dignity.


Amrita Rao - Ranbir Kapoor

Amrita Rao has also been involved in controversy. When she turned down a film with Ranbir Kapoor, the actress made headlines. This occurred in 2007 when Yash Raj Films offered her a role in which she had to kiss Ranbir on-screen. When this journalist questioned Amrita Rao about the raging controversy, she decided to clear the air. "I chose not to participate because I had reservations about certain aspects." Kissing was never a problem. "I really don't understand how this issue of kiss came up in the first place when the truth is that the issue was something entirely different," Amrita admits.
