‘Akshay fan’ Amy had to pinch herself when offered ‘Singh Is Bliing’

Mumbai (IANS) British model-actress Amy Jackson said on Wednesday that she was extremely surprised when she was offered “Singh Is Bliing” and had to pinch herself to believe that she was going to star opposite Akshay Kumar.

“I had to pinch myself. I got the call and didn’t expect it. And right up till nearly the end of filming, I was thinking, ‘Am I actually doing a film with Akshay Kumar?’ because I was a massive Akshay Kumar fan before and the first film that I ever watched was his and Katrina’s film, ‘Namastey London’. I didn’t think that I could get the chance to star alongside him, especially so early on in my career,” said Amy at a press meet here on her first reaction on being offered the film.

Amy added that Akshay has been the best co-star. “He’s the action king of Bollywood and not just the way he is as an actor, but mainly the way he is as a person. I learnt a lot from him from the way he conducts himself professionally. For instance, how we were up at crack of dawn today to get these promotions on and get them sorted. I think he is an inspiration.”

Since the trailer of the venture was released, the action scenes performed by Amy has impressed the viewers. And she now hopes to become a trend-setter in terms of action for actresses. “There is a lot of action in this film, which I haven’t seen in Bollywood films before, so I would like to set a trend. I loved the action, I think it’s something thats important, not just for heroes, but heroines can also do it,” she said.

Akshay, too, is also impressed with Amy. “She is one of the best fighters I’ve come across as a heroine and she’s done wonderful fights. And obviously, she’s beautiful,” he said.

Though she was saree-clad in her debut Hindi venture “Ekk Deewana Tha”, the 23-year-old started out as a model, so slipping into a bikini wasn’t too difficult.

“I like to stay fit, so it’s just generally healthy living and healthy lifestyle so I didn’t really have to do much preparation for it. And when we’re on set, Akshay is very helpful.”

Amy was last seen opposite Vikram in Shankar’s “I”.
