Former beauty queen Amy Jackson is shooting for daredevil action sequences for her upcoming film ‘Singh is Bliing’. She has trained in mixed martial arts and kick-boxing for the scenes. Amy took inspiration and guidance from none other than Akshay Kumar for the same.
A source adds, “Starring in a movie opposite the Action King himself, Akshay Kumar, Amy really had to work hard to at least look half as good as him in her fight sequences. Whilst shooting for I, her physique was slim and slender because she was playing the role of an International model. So, she had to gain a little weight and more muscle for her character in Singh is Bliing. She basically wanted to look strong but still feminine so she focused on functional training to achieve the results. She was really inspired by Akshay’s dedication to martial arts and hence along with learning mixed martial arts herself she started looking up and watching videos of Akshay online for better understanding of action sequences.”
Amy confirms, “The Thai boxing style action sequences of Khiladi and his round kicks and punches really inspired me. I took a real interest in MMA and wanted to involve it in my character for Singh is Bliing.”
