Amisha Patel suffers from performance anxieties in `Power`

New Delhi: She was missing in action on the silver screen for sometime but Bollywood actress Amisha Patel is back with a bang, starring in Rajkumar Santoshi`s upcoming film `Power`.

The actress is sharing screen space with stalwarts like Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Anil Kapoor in the film and is anxious to deliver a good performance.

"Power is such a big film with people like Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn - you feel so small working with them! I was thinking, `How will I perform?` I hope to do a good job and not let my director down," Amisha told reporters.

The `Kaho Na Pyaar Hai` star is aware that her role might be eclipsed by power-packed performances from such seasoned actors, but is determined to leave a mark with whatever bit is given to her.

"In a film like this obviously a girl gets hidden; the actress is not going to be the focus like the actors, but whatever scenes she gets are important. I am looking forward to it," said Amisha, who was in the capital recently to launch designer Rocky S` new festive collection at the Aza store.

The actress, whose last major role on the big screen was in `Bhool Bhulaiyaa`, has also signed up to star opposite tennis player Leander Paes in his debut movie `Rajdhani Express`, to be helmed by Sagar Bellary of the `Bheja Fry` fame.

"I have a very interesting role in the film, which is still being developed by the director. It is a drama with a social message. We will start shooting in December," said Amisha, refusing to divulge further details.

The 35-year-old actress is glued to her TV set these days, watching her brother Ashmit Patel, who is currently locked inside the Bigg Boss house. The actor has been embroiled in quarrels and controversies on the reality show, but sister Amisha is proud of the way he has been handling it all.

"I think he is doing a good job and being very honest. Of course you have nasty people who will try to create controversies, but he is handling it very well. He is the perfect combination of a friend and a flirt, which is great," said the actress.

But Amisha herself is not ready to be part of any such reality show, saying she is not strong enough to go through such an ordeal.

"To be locked up with unknown people, whose sensibilities, background do not match yours and to take insult after insult calmly like my brother - I don`t think I am strong enough to go through all that," she said.
