“He is very quiet, humble and soulful person. We were shooting a scene that involved me and Rajinikant. I was very excited and I told him this, he said I am nervous. I was like ok. He said he gets nervous about the media and the attention.
I told him he is a superstar but he said he gets nervous,” says Amy.
“As a person he has sustained for many years and he is still at top, he is humble and focused on his work. That is important,” said the actress.

I am excited to start shooting with Akshay again,” said Amy, a British model and actress, who has acted in Tamil and few Hindi and Telugu films.
Talking about her journey from the United Kingdom to Bollywood, she said, “It has been crazy and amazing. I had never thought I would work with Akshay and Rajinikant and would get to associate with these talented people.”
