Speaking about her experience to dna, Amy said, “It was lovely to shoot the film. My character has an Indian connection in the film.” Her first project on the global platform has been so enjoyable that the actress is in talks with international filmmakers for more projects. “I loved a few scripts when I was in Los Angeles. I have got my agency over there and I did a few castings, met some directors and producers. It’s a totally different ball game,” she told the leading daily.

Having forayed into international movies now, it’s perhaps only obvious for the actress to be pitted against Priyanka and Deepika. However, Amy maintains that she is very secure in her place and is not looking to compete with anyone. “I am passionate about my acting. It’s not competition for me at all. I’m not competing with Deepika or Priyanka. I look up to them as inspiration. Priyanka has been in the industry for a lot longer than Deepika and me. Even Aishwarya is someone, who I have always appreciated and respected. It motivates me more than feeling pressurised,” she said, adding that the fact she has had DP, Priyanka and Aishwarya set a mark in Hollywood already with their movies, will always make her want to work hard to achieve her dreams and goals.

Helmed by Andrew Morahan, Boogie Man is based on the life of a British-Indian teenager who grapples with his cultural heritage in modern-day London, taking a liking to a 20-something actress/model during a 1970s-themed exhibition, and being obsessed with her all the while trying to keep his family’s Indian traditionalism and responsibilities of adulthood aside.
