So-far, Amy has done the roles of a half-Indian girl, while Diya of Vikram’s Ai is an Indian girl. “I call it a breakthrough film because my character in the movie, Diya is challenging and helped me push my boundaries. I’ve many Tamil dialogues throughout the film.", Amy Jackson said.
About her experience in working with Shankar, Amy said, "Vikram has a change in looks in every single movie, coming to Ai, he has so many different looks.

"We travelled all over China and India for Shankar’s Ai and it is briliant for me to work with the ace filmmaker in just my third Tamil film. Biggest challenge is Ai was in production for two long years and I’ve not done any other movies as Shankar’s movie is biggest film of my career and I wanted to dedicate myself completely to it.” She added.
Amy continued, "Director Shankar has brought in world’s best professionals for Ai. We are done with the shooting of Ai talkie parts and one song is left to be shot. Ai has five songs composed by AR Rahman and my intro song will be shot in Chennai next month.”
Speaking about her co-star Vikram Amy says, “Vikram is an inspiration and he is in a league of his own. Vikram has been in the industry for 20 years and plays a completely different role in every film. I don’t even think of competing with him and it may take 10 years down the line to start competing him."
Amy Jackson is busy reading new scripts and the diva says she is keen to do action films. “I want my next film to push me again. I’ve some exciting scripts in my hand and I’d love to do an action movie next,” Amy concluded.
