Amisha Patel is one of the finest actresses in bollywood today. She took bollywood by storm in 2000 with her bubbly boisterous performance in Rakesh Roshan's "Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai".

Amisha was born on June 9th 1976 in Mumbai to Amit Patel and his wife Asha Patel. Interestingly Amisha Patel's name is a blend of first three letters of her father's name Amit and the last three letters from her mother's name Asha. Amisha is also the granddaughter of late Rajni Patel, the famous lawyer-turned political leader. Amisha has a brother named Ashmit Patel, a promising bollywood actor.

Later Amisha had a chance meeting with Rakesh Roshan, the ace bollywood filmmaker at one of the family parties.
