Director: 'Shortcut Romeo' to boost Ameesha's career
"Shortcut Romeo" director Susi Ganeshan is so much impressed with Ameesha Patel's work in the romantic crime thriller that he is confident it will give a great boost to her career.
In "Shortcut Romeo", a remake of Ganeshan's hit Tamil film "Thiruttu Payale", Ameesha, who is known for films like "Gadar-Ek Prem Katha" and "Humraaz", plays a negative role.
"It will create a wonderful name for her. Ameesha has done good and successful films, but this will give a great mileage (to her career) as a successful film and for a great performance (by her)," Ganeshan said here in an interview.
"I think she will get a lot of awards for the best supporting actress (for 'Shortcut Romeo')," he added.
Also starring Puja Gupta and Neil Nitin Mukesh, the story will see Ameesha playing a crucial role in taking every scene forward.
"She (Ameesha) is the centre code of the film. She is a driving force for every sequence... she has given a wonderful performance," said the director.
The film is slated for a June 21 release.
