The Biggest Mistake of My Life Ruined My Career: Ameesha Opens Up About Her Romance with Vikram Bhatt

Ameesha Patel, once one of Bollywood’s busiest heroines, has had her fair share of successes and controversies. While her on-screen achievements garnered attention, it was her off-screen relationships that made headlines. In particular, her romance with director Vikram Bhatt became the talk of the town. Now, Ameesha is finally breaking her silence and revealing how her love life affected her career in an exclusive interview.

Ameesha Patel is known for her candid nature and her belief in speaking her mind. However, she now reflects on how this honesty might have been her downfall. “In the industry, if you are honest, there is no place for dishonesty. I’m a little too honest. Things are black or white for me. I say what’s on my mind. I will be what you see. I think that was my biggest mistake,” confesses Ameesha.

The actress acknowledges that her two high-profile romances had a significant impact on her career trajectory. “The two romances I had affected my career. With that, there was no need for males for 12-13 years. Only peace. I don’t want anything else in life,” adds Ameesha. It’s evident that she regrets the consequences her relationships brought upon her professional life.

Being single holds great importance for actresses in Bollywood, according to Ameesha. She believes that the audience and industry insiders are often intrigued by a heroine’s relationship status. “Others will be attracted to a girl’s single status. The audience is also interested in that. Career benefits only if you fall in love with big stars. Otherwise, no one will accept you. If you fall in love with the hero, you will get films with the hero. That was not the case with me. So it backfired. But I was able to learn from it,” reveals Ameesha.

The actress sheds light on the preconceived notions and biases that surround heroines in love. Despite her talent and success, she faced challenges in obtaining substantial roles due to her romantic associations.

Ameesha Patel’s most notable romance was with acclaimed director Vikram Bhatt. The duo shared a love story that lasted for five years, capturing the attention of fans and the media alike. Vikram, who had recently ended his relationship with Sushmita Sen, found solace in Ameesha’s company.

Their bond grew stronger during the filming of “Ankahee,” a movie that delved into Vikram’s own life experiences. It was during this time that Ameesha and Vikram fell deeply in love. However, after five years together, their relationship came to an end.

In the aftermath of their breakup, Vikram Bhatt publicly stated that their love was not genuine. He cited family issues as a significant factor that influenced their relationship. Vikram emphasized that during times of crisis, they relied on each other for support. Despite their romantic connection ending, they maintained a strong friendship.

Following her breakup with Vikram, Ameesha Patel found love again, this time with London-based businessman Kanav Puriant. However, their relationship was short-lived, and they eventually parted ways. Since then, Ameesha’s name has been linked to several other individuals, although none of these rumors have been confirmed.
