Ameesha is the daughter of Amit Patel and Asha Patel and the granddaughter of the famous lawyer-politician Barrister Rajni Patel who was the Congress Pradesh Committee President of Bombay. She is the sister of actor Ashmit Patel.

She was born in the Breach Candy Hospital in Bombay and is a trained Bharatnatyam dancer since the age of five.

After returning to India, she joined Satyadev Dubey's theatre group. She did not have any plans of being an actress, but when her father’s friend, film-maker and actor, Rakesh Roshan, met her during a family lunch, he offered her the lead role in 'Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai'. Amisha accepted the offer, the movie went on to become a blockbuster, and made her a star overnight.

Later she went on to star in movies like 'Gadar: Ek Prem Katha', 'Kranti', 'Kya Yehi Pyar Hai', 'Yeh Zindagi Ka Safar', 'Aap Mujhe Aache Lagne Lage', 'Yeh Hai Jalwa', 'Humraaz', 'Parwana', 'Suno Sasurjee', 'Vaada', 'Elaan', 'Zameer', 'Mere Jeevan Saathi', 'Mangal Pandey', 'Humko Tumse Pyar Hai', 'Teesri Aankh', 'Tathastu', 'Ankahee', Aap Ki Khatir', 'Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd', 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa' & 'Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic'.

Personal Life:

She dated Bollywood director, Vikram Bhatt, for five years since the release of their first film together, 'Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage', but they had broken-up in 2007. Ameesha started dating London and Delhi-based businessman Kanav Puri after her break-up, but they eventually broke up two years later in 2010.


Ameesha was in news for some wrong reasons when an Air India employee had filed a police complaint, alleging Patel had misbehaved with her after her companion was not upgraded to first class on the Mumbai-Newark flight on August 18 2006.
