I can’t pull off an item number: Amrita Puri

Amrita Puri, the behenji of Aisha is back in tinsel town after a two-year hiatus in her first solo role in her upcoming film opposite Kunal Khemu.

I wouldn’t really consider it a two-year break, since I started working on this film last May,” says Amrita. “I wanted to follow up Aisha with a performance-oriented film. I have been reading many scripts, but nothing has really impressed me.

she says.

Quiz her if she is being typecast in behenji roles, after her maiden venture and Amrita says,

Anil Kapoor had warned me that since my character in Aisha had a comic touch to it, I may get similar roles after the film. And it seems to be true.

she says.

Will she be game for item numbers in films?

I don’t think so, as I am not physically cut out for them. You have to be able to pull it off well. The Chikini Chamelis and Munnis are best left to Katrina and Mallika.

says Amrita.
