Mumbai, Mar 3: Her debut Bollywood film ‘Ek Deewana Tha’ may not have fared well at the box office but that has not deterred actress Amy Jackson from signing on more Hindi films.
“’Ek Deewana Tha’ is very special to me. I was very happy with my performance. I am very grateful to those who gave me this opportunity to do the film. I had a wonderful time doing the film with Prateik...he is a great co-actor. I have found a great friend in Prateik. All I would say is that I am here to stay in Bollywood,” Amy told PTI, on the sidelines of Lakme Fashion Week here.
Now the British-model-turned-actress has signed three films—two Southern and one Hindi.
“I have signed one Bollywood film and it would hopefully come out this year. We haven’t started shooting yet.. the announcement would come from the makers. I can’t talk much about it. Also, I have signed one Tamil film opposite Vikram and one Telugu film,” she said.
Although having walked the ramp quite a number of times, Amy, who made her debut at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week, for designer Bhairavi Jaikishan, was nervous.
“This is my debut at Lakme Fashion Week and I was bit nervous...had apprehension....butterflies. I felt comfortable wearing a sari as I had worn it in the Hindi film. I felt like a princess today. I feel saris make you look sexy and sensuous,” said Amy, who wore a pastel green sari with heavy detailed embroidery on it.
The collection titled ‘Sensous’ had models dazzling the ramp in their traditional best from saris to lehenga choli.
“The collection celebrates feminine beauty. Our aim is that whoever wears it must look like princess and Amy did look like one,” Bhairavi said.
