We all loved the bubbly look of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Rajinikanth's Robot and now, in the second installment of Robot i.e., Robot 2.0, Amy Jackson will be seen replacing Aishwarya Rai.
When Bombay Times, approached the actress to know her reaction and whether she is nervous as comparisons are bound to happen, here's what the actress told and we're simply loving her sweetness!
ARB Is An Inspiration
"Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is an inspiration. I've watched 'Robot' several times. (Laughs) I have literally followed in Aishwarya's footsteps. But our characters aren't related," said Amy.
Amy On Her Role..
"It's opposite of who I am. I've had to change my demeanour and attitude for this part. I also have action scenes, which I love. Stunt directors were flown in from Germany and England for this film," inserted Miss Jackson.
Amy On Working With Rajinikanth
"Rajinikanth is a dream to work with. He's unaffected by fame and adulation. He was nervous when hundreds of locals turned up to see him on our set in a village. He doesn't like the spotlight, which makes him a legend."
With Whom Amy Wants To Work In Her Next?
When asked about the same, Amy said, "Sanjay Leela Bhansali's work inspires me. I also like Imtiaz Ali. He writes quirky roles for actors."
Amy On Director Shankar
"Shankar has moulded me as an actor. I shot I with him for three years. His vision has helped me grow," said Amy, while praising the director of Robot 2.0.
Amy's Tryst With B'wood Songs & Dance
While talking to the same daily, Amy had also revealed that during her initial days in Bollywood, she was an alien to Bollywood songs and dancing.
Amy's Experience During Her First Film
"During my first film I was told that I had to shoot for a song. And my first reaction was 'Do I have to sing?' I was told, 'No, you just have to lip-sync and dance freestyle', revealed Amy.
But Now, She Is A Pro!
She concluded by saying, "I have no idea where to start and what to do. There were many people on the set and I asked if they would be present when I would have to break into a dance? But now dancing is like second nature to me."
We're excited to see Amy opposite Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, of course, who will play an antagonist in the film.
