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 and Anmol also have a boy.

Boyfriends

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 are completely the reverse of this and appear 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 method 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 created 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 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.

Controversies

Amrita Rao - Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao were rumoured to be secretly dating back in 2006.

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
