Speaking to The Times of India, Amy said, “I’m an actor, and I take my work very seriously. For the past month, I’ve been shooting for a new project in the UK. So, the character I am portraying required me to be thin and completely dedicated to that role (mostly male).
The online backlash from Indian demographics about changing one’s appearance drastically for a character is quite disheartening. I’ve worked with male co-stars who have received immense appreciation for changing their looks significantly for a film, and that was celebrated.”
In response to comparisons with Silicon Murphy made by several users, Amy stated that she is very happy that so many people think she resembles the Silicon Valley star and is ready to return to her Birmingham style.
