Amrita Rao back to big screen after a gap of two years

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Amrita Rao, who will be seen on the big screen after a gap of two years with Rajshri Productions?s `Love You Mr Kalakaar`, insists she wasn?t missing from B-town, but her two film projects were hit by the recession.

Amrita had AB Corporation?s `The Legend Of Kunal`, an epic drama, alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Tabu and Arjun Rampal that was hit by recession. Besides, she had signed up for Ken Ghosh?s romantic family drama starring Neil Nitin Mukesh and her as a part of the younger generation and Rishi Kapoor and Hema Malini as the older generation.

"The two projects were supposed to be released in 2010 but due to recession both the films did not take off," Amrita told PTI in an interview.

`The Legend Of Kunal?, was a film based on the life of Kunal, the son of the Indian emperor Ashoka. King Ashoka was to be played by Amitabh Bachchan and his son Veera Kunal by Arjun Rampal. Amrita was to play Kanchanmala, Kunal`s wife.

Amrita, who was last seen in 2009 in ?Short Kut: The Con? a box-office dud, said, "After ?Shortkut…? the execution of these two projects was to start. But the films got shelved. So I was left only with this Rajshri?s film `Love You Mr. Kalakaar?."
