Apart from Bollywood movies like Shortcut Romeo and Desi Magic, Ameesha is in talks with a big Telugu film production house, which has offered her a huge amount.


Ameesha Patel was part of a Rs 100 crore plus club with Gadar over a decade ago. She had a huge hit as her debut film in the form of Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai with Hrithik Roshan as her co-star and her most recent Rs 100 crore club addition is Race 2.

Not only did Ameesha stood out in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic in the song Lazy Lamhe, but she also loved working with directors like Priyadarshan in Bhool Bhulaiya or budget films like Honeymoon Travels Private Ltd, which also saw box office success.

From the very beginning she has been a part of successful Bollywood films, she was also the first actress ever to have three hits back-to-back in her very first 15 months of her debut. All her South films were huge hits like Badri with Pavan Kalyan, Naani with Mahesh Babu and Narisimha Naidu with Junior NTR to name a few.

According to sources, Ameesha is in talks with a big Telugu film production house, which has offered her a huge amount for the role.

The actress confirmed, "Yes, I have been lucky to have worked with some big actors in Bollywood and down South and I am considering this project depending on my dates matching with my other films like Shortcut Romeo, Bhaiyyaji Superhit and Desi Magic. Touchwood there's too much on my plate as of now. Talks are almost on final stage. Once all points are sorted I'm sure an announcement will be made soon."

Apart from the South film, Ameesha has been busy with her next release Shortcut Romeo, and her producer-director Susi Ganeshan feels that it will be her best performance till date.

Shortcut Romeo with Neil Nitin Mukesh will release in June 2013.
