I’d Love To Do An Action Movie Next - Amy Jackson

Written By Chiyaan Vikram on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 | 8:05 AM

Actress Amy Jackson, who will next be seen in director Shankar’s Ai, chooses to call the film, a ‘breakthrough’ in her career. “Shankar’s movie has taken us to China and to places all over India. To work with Shankar in just my third film is brilliant for me. The reason I call it a breakthrough is because this role has helped me push my boundaries. My character, Diya, has Tamil dialogues throughout. It’s been a great challenge because it is something I have never done before. She’s an Indian girl. I’ve only played a half-Indian girl in my other films until now,” says Amy, whose Telugu film Yevadu raked in the moolah at the box office.

The film, she says, came to her with a set of challenges. “The biggest challenge as far as Ai was concerned is that it’s been happening for two years now. I have not done any movies in between because this is the biggest film of my career and I wanted to dedicate myself to it.”

She adds, “Director Shankar has got the best of professionals from all over the world, including America and New Zealand to work on it. We have completely finished shooting all the scenes. The film has five songs. I have just one song left to be shot and that happens to be my intro song in the film. We will be shooting it in Chennai next month.”

Actors working in a film usually tend to indulge in friendly competition to enable them to bring out the best in them. Quiz Amy if she competed with Vikram, her co-star in the film, and she laughs. “I think Vikram is in a league of his own. I don’t think I can compete with him just yet. Maybe 10 years down the line, I will start competing. Vikram definitely brings out the best in me and is an inspiration. He has been in the industry for 20 years and in every film, he plays a completely different person. His looks change in every single movie. In this movie itself, he has so many different looks, it is unbelievable. Both of us naturally wanted to give our best and we did experiment. But at the end of the day, Shankar was the one who moulded us into what he wanted.”

Currently, Amy is busy reading scripts to pick her next project. “I have some exciting scripts in my hand and I want the next movie I do to push me again. I’d love to do an action movie next,” she signs off.
