Amisha is Leander Paes’s new love

Amisha Patel has been signed opposite tennis star Leander Paes in the film, ‘Rajdhani Express’. In this film, Leander Paes will be seen as a common man. He will debut with the film. Many actresses were in the maker’s mind but finally Amisha Patel bagged the role.

A source said,“Paes signed the film directed by Ashok Kohli sometime back and ever since the film was announced, there has been curiosity over who the leading lady will be.

Paes has been offered films for the last 15 years but he finally agreed to sign the film when he liked the script by Kohli where he will be playing the role of a common man.

Incidentally there were many girls in contention for the title role of the leading lady but it seems Amisha has bagged the coveted role. Apparently Paes has also joined Anupam Kher’s acting academy to brush up his acting skills.”

The source further said, “This is Amisha’s second film after her break-up with Kanav Puri. The couple broke off as Amisha wanted to concentrate on her career and did not want to settle down. Amisha first signed Rajkumar Santoshi’s film Power and has now signed on Rajdhani Express last week."

When contacted Ashok Kohli, the director of the film said, “We’ve signed her for the film. However we will reveal the details at the right time.”

Amisha Patel said, “Yes I am doing the film and I am quite excited about it. It’s a completely new challenge for me as it’s a very fast-paced plot. I believe that sports and glamour always go hand in hand.
