Sometimes you manifest things in life but don’t receive them, and while we may not realise it at the time, God always has bigger and better plans in mind for us. Amrita Rao, meantime, has stated that she turned down two Yash Raj Films (YRF) offers because she felt uncomfortable with kissing and provocative scenes.
Amrita Rao was on her show ‘Couple of Things’ with her husband RJ Anmol when she revealed that she had turned down two YRF films. For those who are unaware, the Vivah actress turned down two roles: Neal ‘n’ Nikki and Bachna Ae Haseeno.
The pair began the video by discussing how Amrita felt ‘really low’ after watching Shradhha Kapoor’s film ‘Luv Ka The End.’
Amrita said, “Mujhe yeh lag raha tha ki aisi clean family film with Yash Raj mujhe kyun nahi mil rahi yaar (I wondered why wasn’t I offered such a clean family film with Yash Raj Films)? I deserve it.”
RJ Anmol became teary-eyed when he heard this from Amrita Rao, and she realised, “God has given (her) such a lovely soulmate.” Later that year, Amrita remembers receiving a message from Aditya Chopra, the chairman of Yash Raj Films, inviting her to his office.
Amrita also revealed that she spoke with Aditya, who told her that she has a ‘Vivah heroine’ and a ‘Rajshri image,’ but that his films aren’t simply for family audience. Adi then inquired as to whether she is willing to attempt new things or if she still has reservations about kissing and portraying daring situations on TV.
Aditya Chopra told Amrita Rao before leaving his office that she was under no obligation to say “Yes” to his films and that she may take her time and say “No” if she felt uncomfortable.
