Remember the chirpy little girl ‘Choti’ aka Amrita Prakash who played Amrita Rao’s younger sister in the film “Vivah”? I am sure you must remember.
Amrita Prakash, who born on 12 May, 1987 in Jaipur started her career as a child actress at the age of 4 with advertising.
Her first TVC was for a local footwear company in Kerala. After which, over the course of her childhood she did over 50 commercials for prominent brands including Rasna, Ruffles Lays, Glucon-D, Dabur, etc.
She holds a Master’s Degree in Commerce and Business Administration from the University of Mumbai.
She is mainly recognised for anchoring the reality show for Kids “Fox Kids” on Star Plus. She was seen anchoring Fox Kids, a cartoon show on Star Plus for about 5 years, making her character of Miss India hugely popular, especially amongst the kids.
She became India’s little sweetheart when she played the lovable character of Milli in “Tum Bin” at the age of 12. Her performance was loved and appreciated and she went on to get nominated as Best Child Artiste in several Lobbies.
At the age of 14, she was chosen to be part of India’s first Reality Show titled “Kya Masti Kya Dhoom” which she co-anchored alongside Bollywood Actress Sonali Bendre for over two years.
She played a crucial role in the super hit movie “Vivah” starring Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao in the lead. Her performance in the movie earned her nominations including the “Star Dust Award” for Best Supporting Role.
She was critically acclaimed for her performance in the Malayalam film “Manjupoloru Penkutty” and also nominated for very prestigious “National State Awards” in the Best Actress Category.
She has also worked in many Television reality and fiction shows including “Rishtey”, “Kashmeer”, “Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai”, “Jhoome Naache Gayein”, “Ek Rishta Aisa Bhi”, “Halla Bol Season 2”, “Akbar Birbal” etc.
Amrita Prakash has now opted for a parallel career behind the camera. She said, “I am associated with a digital advertising agency and I direct short films. It’s given me the chance to liberate my creative energies. Also, I never wanted to assist anyone. So with the explosion of digital media content, I was able to create opportunities for myself to direct hands-on.”
