Amruta lives in Mumbai with her parents, sister and two brothers. Her parents are uneducated and her father earns a daily wage by doing odd jobs for a carpenter. Amruta’s parents sent her to the Government school in Mankurd and she became a Nanhi Kali when she was in Standard 4. Amruta was introduced to wrestling when she saw 2 girls wrestle, but her sports teacher discouraged her since she was underweight.

This is when Coach Babasaheb Shinde walked into her life and gave her the guidance and training. While wrestling does take up most of her time, Nanhi Kali Community Associates help Amruta cope with her studies. She is also preparing for the National Level Wrestling Championship this year.
