Description: Ameesha Patel is an Indian actress who appears in mainly Bollywood movies. Making her acting debut in the blockbuster Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000), Patel won critical praise for her performance in Gadar: Ek Prem Katha (2001), which became one of the biggest hits in the history of Hindi cinema, earning her a Filmfare Special Performance Award. She would subsequently star in a number of films, most of which proved unsuccessful at the box office. However, her performance in the 2006 film Ankahee, received critical recognition, and she followed it with a supporting role in the hit Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007). Her relationship with filmmaker Vikram Bhatt was often talked about in the Indian media as well as her long-running rift with her parents.

AMEESHA IN NEWS
Every actress gets at least one chance at making a comeback long after the sun has set on their mainstream Bollywood career. But while most choose to portray more matured roles for the comeback vehicle, Ameesha Patel is still trying to take on the current crop of A list heroines and that is where Desi Magic seems to fall flat. She does have an incredible beach body which she flaunts to full effect but even this short teaser trailer fails to mask the fact that she looks too old to be playing these sweet, bubbly roles that even Kareena Kapoor has grown out of. She sounds tired, forced and sometimes even silly trying to appear like a twenty something urban babe. The story itself is about the contrast of romances you will find within India with the lead actress in a double role. While one Ameesha is a total glam doll, the other is an annoying village belle and both have only one thing in common, that is commitment phobia. Sahil Shroff and Zayed Khan seem to have the kind of roles which are usually reserved for women, that is they are purely in the film for eye candy. Because after all, Desi Magic is all about Ameesha Patel. The production values are slick and there is a clear attempt at making a quality feature film. Whether it actual manages to create any magic at all is another matter. Directed by Mehul Atha, Desi Magic is slated to release some time next year. You can check out the teaser trailer below and let us know what you think!
Whenever a Bollywood actress steps out in a mob she becomes an easy target for perverted male fans. And it’s a disgusting fact that such public molestation incidents happen almost every day in our country. The latest B-town lady to fall victim is Ameesha Patel. Reportedly, the actress was groped in public by a man when she was surrounded by a group of fans at the launch of a jewellery store in Gorakhpur. But instead of simply standing by in shock, this bindaas babe got into action and slapped the culprit hard across the face. Four tight, public slaps later the man was left reeling from the unexpected response. We are sure he and others like him will think twice before risking something like this in future. We feel Patel’s response should be made the legal protocol in such cases, what do you think?
The wrap-up party of Ameesha Patel’s Desi Magic revealed rather too much of the actress. Looking pretty in a white off-shoulder mini-dress Ameesha Patel seemed to forget how short her dress really was. The 33 year old actress unknowingly exposed her white underwear to the hungry shutterbugs as she chatted away with Abbas- Mustan. The Race 2 actress is no stranger to such peek-a-boo moments though and even in the past Ameesha had revealed her undies to the cameras. The wrap up party was also a celebration of Randhir Kapoor’s birthday and many B-town celebs like Rakesh Roshan, Zayed Khan, Ramesh Taurani, Ravi Kissen, Abbas- Mustan and Pooja Chopra attended the event. But Ameesha’s latest wardrobe malfunction was definitely the highlight of the evening. Directed by Mehul Atha and starring Zayed Khan, Ameesha Patel and Sahil Shroff, Desi Magic has been produced by Ameesha herself along with business partner Kuunal Goomer.
Ameesha Patel started out as the girl-next-door with Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai and pretty much played the same character ever since. Some poor judgements on the professional front (we’re talking tantrums) and unfortunate conflicts on the personal sphere edged her out of the filmy scene. Of course, she sexed it up in her comeback with the ‘Lazy Lamhe’ song in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. We can never forget that yellow bikini even if we want to. Ameesha repeated the ditzy bombshell act with Race 2 and Shortcut Romeo. And she seems to be quite comfortable in the mould, now that she is the cover girl for Maxim. The launch happened on 12th August, where Ameesha claimed that the photo-shoot was largely unplanned. And she believed she was the right choice for the cover girl since she is single. She is currently working on Desi Magic, which will be the first film to release from her banner Ameesha Patel Productions. For a quick sneak-peek at the event, check out the video below:
After old songs and old films, it’s now the turn of popular dance numbers from the past to undergo a transformation. If Na Jaane from Chaalbaaz got a makeover in I Me Aur Main, we’ll now see Ek Do Teen from Tezaab getting a revamp in Desi Magic. There’s news that Ameesha Patel is all set to recreate Madhuri’s Ek Do Teen magic in her debut production venture, Desi Magic and she’s roped in Raju Khan to choreograph the song. Interestingly Raju’s mom, Saroj Khan choreographed the original song. With none of her recent solo projects working for Ameesha we hope Ek Do Teen does the trick for her.
