'I'm not getting married'

November 23, 2006 16:45 IST

When Amrita Rao came for a Rediff Chat on November 22, many of the readers had a similar worry -- that she would plan her own vivah, and quit the movies.

The actress has a strong fan base, who just don't want her quitting just yet.

Amrita talked about herself, her favourite actors, one of them being Aamir Khan -- surprisingly, not her Main Hoon Naa costar Shah Rukh Khan -- and much more.

For those who missed the chat, here's the transcript.

Amrita Rao says, Hi, you are with me Amrita Rao. Let's rock.


gokul asked, Hi Amrita. Personally, I didn't like you much before VIVAH. But when I saw VIVAH, I was spellbound. It was a fantastic performance for sure. The penultimate reels were amazingly acted, narrated and executed. I fell in love with your characterization..! You reminded me of the innocence what Jaya Bhaduri in her hay days used to have. Overall, brilliant performance in a brilliant movie. Cheers..!
Amrita Rao answers, Hey Gokul, so good to know that you changed your opinion about me after Vivah. Guess thats what Soorajji does to all his heroines. Love always.


Muneeb asked, Hi, Amrita.Congratulations for your brilliant performance in VIVAH and also for the success of the movie. Can you tell me that who has been your all time favourite film star and secondly what are your forthcoming films?

Amrita Rao answers, hey rj..thank u soooooooooooooooo much. Love A Rao

LegendOfAmritaRao asked, Amrita is one of the most promising newcomers. She's talented and very sweet. I don't think saying there's a possibility she may fill the void left by MAdhuri is a ridiculous remark..It IS possible...Esp. After Vivah.
Amrita Rao answers, Hey, thank you so much for having so much faith in me. Only hope I never let you down. Love A Rao

Amrita Rao answers, Hi Sumit, that was so observant of you. Yes the tug of war sequence was very cute and it was fun shooting for it.


arpitz asked, hi amrita...to say that u looked just ethereal in vivaah would be an understatement.... and coming to youe performance..i think a biggest complement any actor can get is that after seeing a movie when one feels that the role was writen for u...kudos
