 From being a British model to a Bollywood actress Amy has come a long way. She has not only starred in the South blockbuster film I but in Bollywood too she has got another chance - after Ek Tha Deewana with Prateik Babbar failed to make waves, she plays Akshay Kumar’s leading lady in Singh is Bliing.

Kriti Sanon was the first choice for your role in Singh is Bliing. Does that ever bother you?

Love.jpgNot at all. Kriti is a fantastic actor. It didn’t happen for Kriti and thankfully it worked out for me -- that’s just a part and parcel of films.

What was your first reaction when you were told that you have been cast opposite Akshay?

I had to actually pinch myself when I got the call! I couldn’t believe it and right till the last day of shooting, I was like ‘Am I actually working with Akshay Kumar!” I have been a massive Akshay Kumar fan before and the first film that I ever watched was Namaste London. I didn’t think that I would get the chance to star alongside him and specially so early in my career.

How would you define

Akshay Kumar?

You can’t define Akshay Kumar, he’s the action king of Bollywood and as a person I have learnt a lot from him. He is an inspiration.

Akshay is always helping us all keep fit. In fact, he helped Ratiji (Agnihotri) lose around nine kilos … he had given her a diet and now after losing weight she looks great.

How did you keep yourself fit?

I like to stay fit so I generally lead a healthy lifestyle.

We rarely see actresses doing stunts. Do you think your action sequences will start a trend?

In this film there is lot of action, the kind of which I have never seen before in Bollywood yet. I love doing action and I would like to set a trend.
