She recalled getting several letters and wedding proposals from foreigners residing in the US and Canada, many of whom even sent pictures of their home and family members. She mentioned:

“When Vivah came out, I got these marriage proposals and since we didn’t have that many smartphones back then, I mostly got letters from Canada and the US. They always sent me photos of their house, their mothers and their cars. Back then, I used to laugh at these things. But when I look back on it now, I think of the impact a role has, they just want to marry you. It was so magical.”

The diva articulated that since she doesn't have a godfather in the industry, she instead prefers being choosy. Moroever, she emphasised how her choice of not being seen as often doesn't necessarily imply that she is not doing work. Amrita concluded that she has always inclined towards quality than quantity when it comes to films. In her words:

“I don’t follow any Strategy. Since i don’t have any ‘God-Father’ in the Bollywood, So i am very careful then being choosy. I understand that in 2010 my Port-Folio got little disrupted unintentionally and unplanned. But i have not decided that. Like how i didn’t decide that i will sign 3 films this year. There is no intention behind doing lesser work. There was always an intention of doing good work."
