Amy Jackson who returns with Singh Is Bling says she was the first choice for Kick but insists that she's lost touch with old friends Sallu and Prateik.
British actress Amy Jackson made her Bollywood debut with the 2012 release Ek Deewana Tha, opposite Prateik Babbar. Their reel romance famously spilled onto real life but ended quickly and Amy soon vanished from the spotlight.
Three years later, she has returned to Mumbai from London and has also quickly bagged her big Bollywood comeback movie. "My agent told me that producer Ashwini Yardi was looking for a girl to replace Kriti Sanon who wasn't a part of Singh is Bling anymore. I met Akshay (Kumar), the narration happened and we were on! Now, Ashwini is handling my work too," she informs.

Amy admits that since she's playing a desi girl in the film, she has to speak Hindi convincingly. "I'm taking classes, main Hindi seekh ke rahoongi," she says with a pronounced British accent. 

Probe her about her vanishing act and the lady informs that she was busy down South, but not for lack of Bollywood offers. 

"I just couldn't find the time for them. In fact, I was offered Kick but Shankar had a major chunk of my dates for I, so I chose him over the Salman Khan-starrer," she says. 

Kick then went to Jacqueline Fernandez and became one of the biggest hits of last year.

It would've made a huge difference to Amy Jackson's Bollywood career. All she has as far as Bollywood goes is Ekk Deewana Tha with Prateik Babbar. Just like their relationship even their film was a Disaster. Considering Salman Khan was very keen on casting her in Jai Ho where he openely did praise her for being very attractive, would've been a good opportunity to restart big with a worldwide Blockbuster like Kick other than a Prabhu Dheva directorial Singh Is Bling.

Ek deewana tha was really a full on pakau film..
