The following year, Amy starred in three movies, one Hindi and two Tamil films. The Hindi movie, Singh Is Bliing, which also starred Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Kay Kay Menon, got mixed reviews upon its release, but it performed pretty well at the box office.

The year 2016 saw Amy star in a slew of movies, namely, Gethu, Theri, Devi (all three Tamil movies), Freaky Ali and Tutak Tutak Tukiya (both Hindi movies), and she made a special appearance in the song Chal Maar in Telegu movie Abhinetri.
In 2017, she starred in English movie Boogie Man, which is an independent UK film, and in 2018 she was seen in Kannada movie The Villain, which was followed by Tamil movie 2.0. Amy starred alongside Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar in movie 2.0, and it did very well at the box office. During the period of 2017-2018, Amy also played the role of Imra Ardeen/Saturn Girl in the third season of Supergirl of The CW's superhero series.
