Gujarati Actress Biography
Ami Trivedi (अमी त्रिवेदी Amī Trivēdī અમી ત્રિવેદી અમિ ત્રિવેદી) is an Indian television and theatre artist.[1] She has done Gujarati theatre for many years. She has appeared in number of Hindi serials also. Her father is a well-known theatre actor, Tushar Trivedi who has been involved in Gujarati plays for over 20 years. Her elder brother, Karan Trivedi is also a theatre actor and voice-over artist.
Ami started acting in childhood. Her father, Tushar Trivedi has been a theatre person so she literally grew up in the theatre. Both Ami and her brother have been child artists. As a child artist, she did cameos in few Hindi serials like 'Hamrahi' and 'Zee Horror Show'. In 1994, she acted in Prakash Jha's telefilm 'Didi' which focused on education of female children in rural areas.
Then she took a gap for her studies in class 10th and 12th. She graduated in science from Jai Hind College, Mumbai. She was keen to study medicine and wanted to be a doctor. But it eventually didn't happen.
Things changed as she again got started with acting as a teenager. She did Gujarati theatres and received appreciation of the audience. She was more than happy to pick up from where she had left off, after finishing her education.
[edit]Debut and breakthrough
Ami's major theatre background helped her in getting many acting offers from television channels. She got her first break for a small cameo role in a daily soap ‘Babul Ki Duwayen Leti Jaa’ which aired on Zee TV. Thereafter, she did cameos and supporting roles in some shows like 'Dil Chaahta Hai' and 'Khichdi' and 'Kumkum- Ek Pyra Sa Bandhan'.
When she heard about a new serial, Ami, auditioned for Kituu Sab Janti Hai on the insistence of a coordinator. She didn't even have her photographs taken for self-promotion. But still, the audition went off very well. As a result, she got a call back in two days. She was chosen among 40-45 girls and she bagged the lead role in the show.
This show shaped-up her career as she quickly stole the limelight as effervescent 'Kituu' in the serial, playing the role of a young extrovert 20-something girl who takes the plunge to face the professional world. She was well appreciated for her work as 'Kituu' and after that, she started working in number of Hindi serials.
[edit]Recent Work
Ami was recently seen in SAB TV's comedy serial Sajan Re Jhoot Mat Bolo, that ended on January 06, 2012 after successfully running for 2 years. She portrayed a substantial character of "Tulika" in it. She also made a guest appearance in famous dance class show Nachle Ve with Saroj Khan hosted by Saroj Khan, on 21 December,2011.
[edit]Personal Life
Ami's father, Tushaar Trivedi is now directing plays as a drama director at the Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan in London. Ami's mother, Jaya Trivedi is a housewife. Jaya is the greatest inspiration in her life. Jaya commutes between Mumbai and London. Whenever she’s in Mumbai, she frequently visits her daughter on the sets with homemade food and also helps her to select the right kind of work. Ami's brother, Karan Trivedi has done many Gujrati theatres with her father and sister and is still working.
She got married to her boyfriend, Niraj Sanghai in 2009. Niraj Sanghai works at Prime Focus Ltd, which is one of the largest end-to-end post production services companies in the world.
They both met through a common friend on the sets of Kituu Sab Janti Hai. There were many problems in their marriage as they belong to different castes. But finally after 4 years of dating, they were happily married to each other on 10 December 2009. She has been living with her husband in one of the most sought-after areas of Mumbai, Lokhandwala, Andheri(W) for almost two years now.
Parekh started her career as a child artist under the screen name Baby Asha Parekh in the film Aasmaan (1952). Famed film director Bimal Roy saw her dance at a stage function and cast her at the age of twelve in Baap Beti (1954). The film's failure disappointed her and even though she did a couple more child roles, she quit to resume her schooling.[6] At sixteen she decided to try acting again and make her debut as a heroine, but she was rejected from Vijay Bhatt's Goonj Uthi Shehnai (1959) in favour of actress Ameeta, because the filmmaker claimed she was not star material. The very next day, film producer Subodh Mukherjee and writer-director Nasir Hussain cast her as the heroine in Dil Deke Dekho (1959) opposite Shammi Kapoor which made her a huge star.[7]
The film also led to a long and fruitful association with Hussain. He went on to cast her as the heroine in six more of his films: Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai (1961), Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon (1963), Teesri Manzil (1966), Baharon Ke Sapne (1967), Pyar Ka Mausam (1969), and Caravan (1971). She also did a cameo role for his film Manzil Manzil (1984). He also got her involved in distribution of films for 21 years, starting with Baharon Ke Sapne (1967). She was primarily known as a glamour girl/excellent dancer/tomboy in most of her films, until director Raj Khosla gave her a serious image by casting her in tragedienne roles in three of her favourite films: Do Badan (1966), Chirag (1969), and Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki (1978). Director Shakti Samanta gave her more dramatic roles in her other favourite films, Pagla Kahin Ka (1970), and Kati Patang (1970), the latter earned her the Filmfare Best Actress Award. Many important directors repeated her several times in their films, such as Vijay Anand, Mohan Segal and J.P. Dutta.
Asha acted in her mother tongue Gujarati by starring in three films at the height of her fame in Hindi films, the first film being Akhand Saubhagyavati (1963), which became a huge hit.[8] She also acted in some Punjabi films and a Kannada film Sharavegada Saradara released in 1989.[9]
After her days as a leading lady ended, she took on supporting roles as bhabhi (sister-in-law) and mother, but she called this the "awkward phase" of her career. So she stopped acting in films, and her friends recommended that she become a television director.[10] She took their advice and became a television director in the early 1990s with a Gujarati serial Jyoti. She formed a production company Akruti and produced serials like Palash ke Phool, Baaje Payal, Kora Kagaz and a comedy Dal Mein Kaala.[11] She was the president of the Cine Artistes' Association from 1994 to 2000. Asha was the first female chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification (Censor Board) of India. She held the post from 1998 to 2001 for which she received no salary but plenty of controversy for censoring films and for not giving clearance to Shekhar Kapur's Elizabeth. Later, she became the treasurer of the Cine and Television Artists Association (CINTAA) and also was later elected to be one of its officebearers.[12]
Asha stopped acting in 1995 to pursue directing and producing television serials, but her acting accomplishments were not forgotten as she received the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002.[13] And she has continued to receive other Lifetime Achievement Awards: Kalakar Award in 2004;[14] International Indian Film Academy Awards in 2006;[15] Pune International Film Festival Award (2007);[16] Ninth Annual Bollywood Award (2007) in Long Island, New York.[17] She received the Living Legend Award from the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry(FICCI).[18]
In 2008, she was a judge on a reality show Tyohaar Dhamaaka on the Indian entertainment channel 9X.[19]
[edit]Personal life
Asha has remained unmarried, claiming that her reputation of being unapproachable made people hesitate in asking for her hand in marriage. There were rumours that she was romantically involved with her married director Nasir Hussain.[20][21] In her later years, Asha said that she had a longtime boyfriend but declined to elaborate on the relationship, only stating that "it was nice while it lasted."[22] She said she hadn't seen Nasir Hussain the last year of his life, as he became reclusive because of his wife's death,[23] but she did speak to him the day before he died in 2002.[24]
Today, she concentrates on her dance academy Kara Bhavan and the Asha Parekh Hospital in Santa Cruz, Mumbai, named in her honour because of her many humanitarian contributions.[4]
