After returning to India, she joined Satyadev Dubey's theatre group. She did not have any plans of being an actress, but when her father’s friend, film-maker and actor, Rakesh Roshan, met her during a family lunch, he offered her the lead role in 'Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai'. Amisha accepted the offer, the movie went on to become a blockbuster, and made her a star overnight.
