Ashmit Patel, who has been struggling to make his mark in Bollywood film industry for about 4 years, was born on 1st January, 1978 in Mumbai, India. The Bollywood actor is the son of Amit Patel and Asha Patel. He is the brother of gorgeous Bollywood actress Amisha Patel. His grandfather was the famous Indian lawyer Rajni Patel.
Ashmit had his schooling in Cathedral High School and later had his business degree in Texas, in the United States. He took care a portion of his father’s business for a period of time, before he discovered his interest in acting and decided to try his luck in Bollywood. He had broken relations with Bollywood actresses Amritha Arora and Riya Sen. He was into a MMS video contraversy, in which he allegedly had his private life moments with his Ex-girlfriend Riya Sen, although many people claimed the video was just a publicity stunt to get some (cheap) publicity. Before acting in his first film “Inteha” in the direction on Vikram Bhatt, he worked as a second assistant director for Firoz Nadiadwala-produced film Awara Paagal Deewana, directed by Vikram Bhatt.
Ashmit’s debut movie “Inteha” was a remake of 1996 Hollywood film “Fear.” Inteha was produced by Mukesh Bhatt and directed by Vikram Bhatt. It was a result of their relation between Vikram Bhatt and Amisha that Vikram promised and made the film with Ashmit Patel as the hero. That film proved to be a failure at the box office. Ashmit has acted in over ten films after his debut film Inteha but none of them could help his career in any way. Below is a list of films he has acted so far, some of which are in production:
Tum Mere Ho
Kudiyon Ka Hai Zamana
Daag – Shades Of Love
Dil Diya Hai
Banaras: A Mystic Love Story
Fight Club – Members Only
The only film that is worth mentioning is “Murder” which was released in 2004, his role was of not much importance though. Almost all the credit went to “Mallika Sherawat” and “Emraan Hashmi” for their roles and chemistry on the screen. At the moment he is working in some films and a couple are in post-production. Let’s hope he gets success with them.
