Actor Ashmit Patel, who has been a part of films like Murder, Silsile, Nazar, remains in the headlines more due to controversies related to his personal life than films. There was a time when an MMS of Ashmit Patel and Riya Sen was leaked. At that time Ashmit was blamed for this. Also, his relationship with Riya also ended. Now after years, Ashmit has given clarification on the MMS leak.

Recently, during an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Ashmit Patel said about the MMS leak, 'Actually she (Riya Sen) did not blame me. When this happened, we tried to handle it together. I hired a lawyer, sent notices to media houses. The boyfriend of one of Riya's friends was a big lawyer, we hired him. Even after that our relationship was fine. We were working together in a film before this incident. When things got better, we shot that multi-starrer film again, although that film could not be completed. But I don't know how things changed after that.'

Further Ashmit said, 'Maybe someone provoked Riya, then she started thinking that it was my mistake. But I think she knew in her heart that it was not my mistake'. Further Siddharth Kanan asked whether you were judged. On this Ashmit said, 'Yes, of course, when something like this happens, because you are a boy, people blame you. People think that he must have done something. So it was very difficult for me. This was not a small allegation. This was the first time something like this had happened. At that time there were not so many smart phones. For me this was a very serious allegation. As if someone had accused me of rape. I was not so stupid that I would do something like this intentionally. It obviously had a great impact on me'.

Let us tell you that Ashmit Patel and Riya Sen were seen together in the 2005 film Silsila. During the shooting of the film, the closeness between the two grew and they got into a relationship. During this time, a private video of the two was leaked. After the MMS was leaked, the two broke up.

Ashmit Patel is the brother of Bollywood actress Ameesha Patel. He worked as an assistant director in films like Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage, Awara Pagal Deewana, Raaz, Footpath, directed by Vikram Bhatt. In 2003, Ashmit made his acting debut with the film Inteha. This film was a flop at the box office, after which he appeared in the film Murder (2004) with Mallika Sherawat and Emraan Hashmi. Later he was a part of films like Nazar, Dil Diya Hai, Silsila. However, his career was ruined after the MMS leak.
