How will you define Amita in your words?
You recently had an on-screen marriage... How was the experience while shooting it?
I was super thrilled and excited. I had butterflies in my stomach everyday
on the sets. I shot for the haldi, sangeet and wedding
sequence and have experienced all the rituals. Life of an actress is so
unique. I am too young to get married in real life but on-screen I had a
memorable experience and the feedback is fantastic. I gave my exams too
while shooting. Life is a roller coaster ride currently.
Dance is something I miss the most at the moment. I love dancing; it is my hobby and passion. Dancing in SDIIL -Shiamak Davar International India Pvt. Ltd - is the best experience. People there are good and the instructors are great. I was in Shiamak's special batch called the SPB (Special Potential Batch). I miss dancing for hours and hours at stretch. I was trained in various dance forms like hip hop, wacking, ballet, contemporary, Shiamak style, jive, salsa, Bollywood, street, jazz, etc. Amongst all I love wacking and Bollywood. I am proud to be a Shiamak student and the best part is he loves me. It is very rare that he recognizes people and I am one of them.
Share your most memorable moment with Shiamak Davar.
It was during a show called Summer Funk, where I had performed on the song Aa re pritam pyaare. After the performance he came on stage, hugged me and said to the audience, "I've never seen a dancer like her and I love her the most. She has always been surprising me and I love to watch her performance." This was in front of more than six hundred people.
Any regrets so far?
I do regret some decisions taken by me in the past. I lost two movies because I didn't take it so seriously. I got shortlisted for the movie 'Mujhse Dosti Karoge' and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and even had met both the producers. I was around 11 years old but due to some reason I couldn't act in those movies. Then after this I signed the film 'Naina'. However, after signing the contract they wanted me to cut my hair short and I loved my hair so much that I refused to do it. They asked me to think about it and by the time I could agree I had lost the opportunity.
