The only way from here is up: Ameesha Patel
By Joginder Tuteja
Ameesha Patel has been missing from the big screen for a while now with her career hitting rock bottom but the actress, who recently launched her own production house, says she is all set to begin a new phase in life.
The 36-year-old, who was last seen in an item number in "Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic" (2008) is producing two films this year and has signed on to star in three -- "Bhaiyyaji Superhit", "Race 2" and "Shortcut Romeo". "The only way from here would be up, up and up. I have got a new lease of life and I am going to make the most out of it. I am a fighter and am here to stay," Ameesha told PTI.
The actress has signed on big names like David Dhawan and Priyadarshan to direct films for her banner and Ameesha says she is also going to star in her own productions. "It is going to be busy days ahead since I would be acting in both my productions. There has been so much goodwill that I have earned in the industry during last 10 years. I am making films now and I couldn't have settled for anything but the best.
"Also in our production house we have a clear vision that we would give directors whatever they need. There won't be any compromises. We won't be following trends, we would be creating them," she added.
While David Dhawan's film would be an out and out masala comedy, Priyadarshan's film would be a comedy with elements of drama in it as well. PTI
