Bollywood’s Sibling Secrets! Ameesha and Ashmit Patel’s bitter relationship phase


In every person’s life, siblings have always been playing a vital role. Whatever secrets we have, we reveal it to our brothers and sisters. After all, brother or sister aka siblings is the only kind of people who stay with us for a longer time.

Bollywood does have the same things about sibling relationship which shows us emotions, love, care and rivalry as well. We have seen films based on sibling relationship which have surely appealed to us. However, relationships shown in the films and in real life are totally different. Some of the Bollywood stars like Kareena-Karisma, Sunny-Bobby, Kajol-Tanishaa, Salman-Arbaaz-Sohail and others have always been giving us major brother-sister relationship goals.

However, some of the B-town sibling duos have had faced a rough patch of their relationship. In the year 2004, actress Ameesha Patel had reportedly sent a legal notice to her father for mismanaging her accounts and assets amounting to Rs 120 million and demanding the money back. At that time, Ameesha’s younger brother Ashmit too had made a successful debut with the film Murder. But due to Ameesha’s gesture towards their parents, he got upset and expressed his disappointment.

In an old interview, when Ashmit was asked about his relationship with Ameesha, he said, “There’s no sibling rivalry involved in my stand. Yes, it’s true that I have hardly spoken to Amisha since she’s mostly away shooting abroad. And the little that we talk has nothing to do with any professional rivalry. As I understand, she was in Mumbai early this morning before she went back abroad, but I’m not too sure about this. This is a family matter and we will sort it out once she’s back.”

Speaking about the parents, Ashmit had said, “I’m minding my own business as I do not want to get dragged into all this till I’m asked to. But there is no question about which side of the fence I am standing on. I can’t even imagine paying my parents back for the kind of luxurious lifestyle they have provided for me. They have selflessly given all that they had to make sure that both my sister and I had the best of everything in life. I will always be thankful to them.”

When Ameesha was asked by Hindustan Times about her parents, she had said, “Why should I feel ashamed? My money belongs to no one but me and not even my parents have the right to take it away. In fact, my grandmother is supporting me. My parents have fooled her too.”

As time flew, the fire doused and Ameesha and Ashmit finally reconciled on Raksha Bandhan in 2009. In December the same year, Patel’s mother Asha had revealed they have finally ended their five-year estrangement during an interview with the leading daily.
