Articles about Amrita Puri

Most actors are not remembered for their performance in their debut film. Several of them fail to bring out their best when they stand in front of the camera for the first time. For Amrita Puri, that wasn’t the case. Her performance in her debut film ‘Aisha’ in 2010 earned her two Filmfare nominations. She also won the Best Breakthrough Performance Award at Stardust Awards for the same. Born on August 20, 1983, in a Punjabi family, Puri studied in Bombay Scottish School. After her graduation and post-graduation in mass communications, she began her career as a copywriter for an advertising agency. At the same time, she pursued theater as well. A year later, she began auditioning for ads and films. After a series of ads, Puri finally struck gold in the audition for ‘Aisha’ in 2010. Although her performance received positive reviews, the film was not a commercial success. Her first commercial success was Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kai Po Che’ (2013), an adaptation of the book ‘The 3 Mistakes of My Life.’ Apart from films, Puri has acted in various web and television series as well.
