Amy Jackson: This gal is here to stay!
Chennai: When Amy Jackson won the Ms Teen World 2008 and followed it up with Ms Liverpool 2009, who would have thought where destiny would take her? But turning out as it has, South director A.L.Vijay ‘discovered’ her, she was cast in the Tamil movie, “Madrasapattinam”, and the country heralded a new star. The film turned out a huge success. Amy shifted base to India and soon landed a Bollywood movie.
Despite being a newcomer to the city, Amy managed to blend in pretty well. The cast and crew extended a warm welcome making her feel at home. Even though she claims she misses Britain; there’s no doubt that she has taken to Mumbai like a fish to water. Yoga, Bollywood dance classes, Hindi tuition’s occupy most of her time when she’s not busy shooting. During shoots,having had a chance to travel to various places -Trivandrum, Goa, Agra, Delhi; she finds India beautiful and has said that she considers it her second home.
With 2 upcoming films down South and probably many Bollywood offers coming her way, Amy is here to stay! What with rumours of Prateik Babbar(her co-star in ‘Ek Deewana Tha’) allegedly living-in with her in Bandra, surely that’s one more reason India is her new home!
