Amrita Rao is an Indian actress who works mainly in hindi movies. She was born on June 7, 1988 in a Konkani-speaking family to Deepak Rao & Kanchan Rao in Pune, Maharashtra, India. She also has a sister Preetika Rao.
Amrita did her schooling at Canossa Convent Girls' School, Mumbai. After that, she took admission in mumbai's Sophia College for Women but dropped out of college to pursue a career in modelling.
Her father, Deepak Rao owns an Advertising Agency in Mumbai.
Her grandfather and Guru Dutt were second cousins.
She was seen in the music video of Alisha Chinoy's song Woh Pyar Mera in 2001.
She made her acting debut in Raj Kanwar's Ab Ke Baras (2002) opposite Aarya Babbar.
One of her most popular roles was in the movie Vivah (2006).
Renowned painter M.F. Husain pronounced Amrita Rao as his 2nd muse 11 years after he painted Madhuri Dixit and made several paintings dedicated to the Amrita's role in Vivah (2006).
Times Of India named Amrita Rao as one of its "50 Most Desirable Women of 2011".
Amrita Rao got married to RJ Anmol after 7 years of dating on 15 May 2016 in Mumbai. The couple was blessed with a baby boy on November 1, 2020 and they named him Veer Sood.
The couple recently revealed on their YouTube channel that they kept their wedding a secret to make sure that the wedding news didn't hamper Amrita's career.
Amrita Rao revealed in an interview that prior to their marriage, RJ Anmol had asked her to quit acting so that they could focus on having a blissful personal life.
"At that point, Anmol could see I was declining some huge movie offers only because I wasn't comfortable doing kissing scenes and love-making sequences on screen. Hence, he thought it was the right time to focus on exploring a beautiful personal life and tying the knot. He did ask me to quit my career and I was completely shattered. However, in a day or two, he told me that in hindsight, he realised that demand was unreasonable and that he was sorry about it." Amrita said.
She was offered a role in the hollywood movie A Knight With The King (2006) but turned it down.
Esha Deol slapped Amrita Rao during the shooting of the movie Pyare Mohan (2006). In an interview, Esha said
"Yes, I slapped Amrita. One day after pack-up, she abused me in front of my director, Indra Kumar and my cameraman and I thought that was totally out of line. To protect my self-respect and dignity, in the heat of the moment, I slapped her. I have no regrets because she totally deserved it for her behaviour towards me at that point in time. I just stood up for myself and my dignity."
Amrita Rao was named after her grandfather, Amrit Rao, who was a freedom fighter.
She is a trained hindustani classical singer and she had received three years training in classical singing during her school days.
During her school days, she had a crush on Indian cricketer, Nayan Mongia.
