Amrita was quite vocal about her feelings for co-star Sunny and often admitted that she found him quite attractive. On the other hand, Sunny even asked Amrita to be a little secretive about their affair.

But they parted ways because Amrita's mother was against their relationship, as she felt her daughter deserved a better man than just an actor. Sources even reveal that Amrita's mother always wanted her daughter to marry and settle down with a man from a rich and aristocratic family.

Quite surprisingly, Amrita Singh was once heard saying, "Sunny wasn't a real relationship. It was more a publicity stunt for Betaab." Well, you can't really know who to believe.

Interestingly, Amrita was engaged to Ravi Shastri when she met Vinod Khanna and she took it up as a challenge to woo Vinod because Ravi Shastri had laughed out saying, "You can never get Vinod Khanna even if you tried!"

Knowing that Ravi Shastri had been unfaithful to her, Amrita Singh had even better reasons to get Vinod Khanna's attention, while the actor didn't reciprocate very positively.

It was during an outdoor shoot for 'Batwara' that Amrita managed to get alone time with Vinod Khanna and tried her best to woo him with her best ladylike behaviour, though she felt disheartened that the actor was not into her much.

Parveen Babi

She was an icon, far ahead of her times, Parveen Babi epitomized the classic good looks of western sensibilities. Rocking glamourous outfits, Parveen was the opposite of a traditional film heroine. She was neither helpless and neither was she virtuous. There was never a heroine like her and never will there be again. This is her controversial life in pictures.
