Husain’s compliment enhances Amrita’s image

Mumbai — Renowned painter M.F. Husain is raving about Amrita Rao’s pristine beauty in her last movie “Vivah” and the actress says his admiring comments take her girl next-door image to another level.

The painter calls her the youthful face of the ultimate Indian woman.

“It is the best compliment of my life,” said Amrita who is very proud of her image. It takes courage not to expose when the norm is to wear mini clothes to grab attention.

She is now looking forward to David Dhawan’s “Hook Ya Crook” in which she is paired with “Rang De Basanti” fame Siddharth and E. Niwas’ “My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves”.
