Vikram Bhatt spoke about Ameesha Patel’s struggle
In an old interview, the Raaz director said that they both saw bad times together. Bhatt told PTI, “Ameesha and I saw bad times together. But when the good times came, unfortunately, we were not together. I was having my string of flops and she was also struggling. And as luck would have it, we broke off just before my film 1920 was released. Thereafter I had all hits like Shaapit and Haunted. I have seen her struggle.”
Vikram further said, “The girl who came with Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai, Gadar and Humraaz, she arrived at the top. But then she saw other girls taking her over. I also saw other directors coming and overtaking me. So, we both went through difficult times. And so, I understand the pain of an actress who is losing her ground.”
Vikram Bhatt mentioned that his ex-girlfriend Ameesha Patel was hopeful about the 2008 movie Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. But things didn’t go well after the release. Talking about it, Bhatt said, “I have seen her being so excited about Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. Ameesha had pinned all her hopes on the film. The film did not do well. I have seen her pain.“
Vikram and Ameesha were in a relationship for several years before they called it quits. In fact, they were also quite vocal about their dating life.
