The success of Vikram-starrer Tamil romantic-thriller “I” has cemented Amy Jackson’s career in southern filmdom to the extent that producers are now making a beeline to cast her.
With two big projects ready to kick off, Amy has come a long way since her debut in 2010 Tamil romantic-drama “Madraspattinam”.
“Amy already has a film with Udhayanidhi Stalin and Dhanush ready to go on floors. She has also been approached two big-budget projects, one each in Tamil as well as Telugu. She’s on the verge of signing the dotted lines,” a source close to Amy said.
On Wednesday, Amy’s yet-untitled Tamil project with Udhayanidhi is going on floors.
“The film will portray Amy as a village belle, contrary to all the glamorous roles she’s played so far. It will be interesting to see how audiences accept her in a different role,” film’s director Thirukumaran said.
Amy will next team up with Dhanush for another Tamil film, which will be directed by Velraj.
Velraj and Dhanush previously collaborated for 2014’s big hit “Vela Illa Pattathari”.
Last year, Amy made her Telugu film debut opposite Ram Charan in “Yevadu”.
“She was offered a few projects post ‘Yevadu’, but she couldn’t sign them due to ‘I’. She’s expected to announce about her next film in the language soon,” the source added.
