Amrita Singh Bollywood Actress Biography

Amrita Singh
Amrita Singh

Amrita Singh (born February 9, 1958) is an Indian film actress.

Amrita is the daughter of Rukhsana Sultana. Mohinder Kaur (mother-in-law of Rukhsana Sultana) was the daughter of Sir Sobha Singh, who was a noted civil contractor, and made a substantial fortune during the building of New Delhi in the early decades of the 20th century. She is also a relative of notable Indian novelist Khushwant Singh, who is the son of Sir Sobha Singh.

Amrita made her Bollywood debut in 1983 with Betaab, a vastly successful film in which she paired with the debutant Sunny Deol. This was quickly followed by a succession of hits, such as Sunny in (1984); Mard which was the biggest hit of that year, and Saaheb in (1985); Chameli Ki Shaadi and Naam in (1986); Khudgarz in (1987), and so on. Amrita made a successful pair in several films not only with Sunny Deol and Sanjay Dutt, but also with Anil Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan, two leading actors of the 1980s. As well as playing leading roles, she also played supporting negative roles in films such as Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman (1992) and Aaina (1993). She also won the Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award for the latter. These successes did not dissuade her from her resolve to retire into family life, and Amrita quit acting after 1993. She returned to acting in 2002 with the film 23rd March 1931: Shaheed where she played the mother of Bhagat Singh
(played by Bobby Deol). She then appeared on the STAR Plus television serial, Kavyanjali in 2005. Later that year she won acclaim for her performance in yet another negative role for the film Kalyug.

In 2007, Amrita played the role of the gangster Maya Dolas’s mother, Ratnaprabha Dolas, in the Sanjay Gupta film Shootout at Lokhandwala, directed by Apoorva Lakhia. Vivek Oberoi played the role of Maya. Her last release was the anthology film Dus Kahaniyaan where she appeared in the short story Poornmasi.

In 1991, Amrita gave up acting for a family life with actor Saif Ali Khan. The couple have two children, a daughter Sara Ali Khan and a son
Ibrahim Ali Khan.

They separated in 2004 and Amrita Singh now lives with her two children.
