Raving Beauty in the Bollywood
Ameesha was first approached by Rakesh Roshan while she was a student. But she denied the offers in order to focus on her academic career.

The film went on to become a sensational hit and the highest grossing Bollywood film of that year. She featured in a Telegu film, Badri after her exciting Bollywood entry.

She tried to revive her career in the late 2007’s with a couple of films but only Bhool Bhooliya managed to gather applauds. She managed to attract some audiences with her super sexy bikini item number, Lazy Lahme in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic.
