Speaking to Times of India, Amy said, “I am an actor and I take my work very seriously. For the last month, I have been shooting a new project in the UK. So, for the character I am playing, I had to slim down and fully commit to the role. The online outcry from the (mostly male) Indian demographic is quite sad. I’ve worked with male co-stars who had to drastically change their look for a film and were praised for it. The moment a woman does it with unusual hair and makeup that doesn’t match her beauty ideal, they think they have the right to troll you.”
