Recently, Amit took to his Instagram story to remember his ex-love. The actor posted the picture of the twin towers situated in US. He wrote, “17 years ago life changed forever…Miss you Mankika. #willneverforget”
Some time back, the Indian Idol contestant released his first ever single, Lambi Judaaiand dedicated that to his ex-lover, Monica.
In an earlier interview with an online portal, Amit had shared how the incident changed his entire life. “Monica Narula was a very important part of my life. We went to college together. And unfortunately, she was there in the building on September 11th, 2001. She was always the one to push me for work, pursue my dream of acting and things like that. She’d always tell me ‘go to Bollywood, go to Bombay… you don’t belong in America with all this studying. Just go, that’s your destiny.’ And I’d always tell her she’s crazy and no one’s going to let me do that.”
He further added, “After she passed away, something opened up in my mind. I knew then that I need to explore something different because I was too broken at the time. It was very difficult for me to deal with death and losing someone… I wasn’t equipped to handle it. That kind of escape I thought I’d get in Bombay, I thought it’d give me some perspective on life. That 6-month trial and error became 12 years and I’m still here.”
