Amrita Rao’s simple, cute and innocent look has helped her to carve a niche for herself her own unique way in B-Town.
She hasn’t gone overtly sexy yet has happily done her own thing and has shone in varied roles in ‘Main Hoon Na’, ‘Vivaah’, ‘Welcome to Sajjanpur’ and ‘Victory’.
Now she’s getting ready for the big one-Chadraprakash Dwivedi’s upcoming period film ‘The Legend Of Kunala’.
In October it was reported that Jaya Bachchan was impressed by Amrita’s docile image and recommended her name.
The film will be produced by the revived production company Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited (ABCL) which after major losses many years ago wants to start the year with a blockbuster.
Amitabh Bachchan is set to play the role of Emperor Ashoka. Arjun Rampal will in all probability play the role of King Kunala. And Tabu will be seen as the Emperor’s wife.
It was reported that Tabu’s character is very strong and suffers from sexual deprivation. And there’s a lot of sexual tension between her and her step son Kunala.
That way Amrita’s role of princess Kanchanmala, the wife of Kunala is very important. According to Dwivedi, he wanted an actress who could stand up to Tabu and Amrita being a good actress fitted the bill perfectly.
As the story centers on Arjun Rampal’s character, Amrita who will play his wife is expected to have a good share of screen time. It’s rare for actresses to grab a good role in a period film which has a bunch of acclaimed actors. This seems like a unique opportunity for Amrita.
The actress thinks that the role of a pure and calm girl will prove to be a turning point in her career. She seems to be fully confident about the film doing well and the high hopes seem natural.
Amrita is preparing for the role and is going through ancient history books about the rule of Emperor Ashoka and the life at that time.
Well after the homework and preparations of that kind, she’s likely to stand out in the crowd yet again.
