Move over Katrina Kaif, Amy Jackson is Akshay Kumar’s new favourite!
These two actresses, who come from London, have set the screen on fire in Bollywood with their sizzling looks and their performances. Katrina Kaif and Amy Jackson have done films with many actors but it's their films with Akshay Kumar that are the talk of the town.
Akshay Kumar's film Singh is Bliing sees Amy Jackson playing the heroine and this is the actress's first film with the star. Directed by Prabhu Dheva, this film shows Akshay in his element as a Punjabi. Kriti Sanon had been signed on initially but Amy Jackson was brought in once Kriti opted out.
Akshay Kumar's top pairing in recent years has been with Katrina Kaif. In fact, they have done nine films together, the last being in 2013. Now with Amy being roped in for Akshay's latest film, is Katrina Kaif all set to be replaced as his winning jodi in future?
There are interesting similarities between Katrina and Amy – both are British and they started their careers as models. Both the actresses have south films to thank for their successful career today. While Boom may officially be Katrina's launch pad, it was the Telugu film Malliswari, that got her Bollywood offers. On the other hand, it was director Vijay's Madrassapatinam that brought Amy the necessary recognition. Katrina and Amy have also been successful at the box office in the south.
While Katrina is today one of the highest paid actresses in Bollywood, Amy Jackson is also looking to strike it big with Singh is Bliing. And if her jodi with Akshay Kumar turns out to be a hit, there will a new hot pair in town.
