Actress Amyra Dastur says she wants to balance work between Bollywood and South India as she loves both the industries.

“Everything is becoming way more global. We have seen a lot of south remakes in Bollywood and they are making Bollywood remakes in south as well. In fact, a lot of producers are making bilingual films,” Dastur said.

She added: “I think both the industries are really going to merge, and they have already started merging. So, I haven’t put Bollywood in the backseat. I had to give up two south projects to complete Kung Fu Yoga. I had put south in the back for a little bit... I love everything about both the industries.”

Dastur’s first film in Bollywood was 2013 film Issaq. She went on to do Tamil film Anegan, Hindi film Mr X and Sino-Indian co-production Kung Fu Yoga. She will also team up with Tridha Choudhury, Sundeep Kishan in a new as yet-untitled Telugu coming-of-age romantic drama.

Dastur also said she is not interested in heading to Hollywood.

Kung Fu Yoga happened by chance. If anything good comes my way then it comes my way but I am not focusing on Hollywood at all. My focus is on south and Bollywood,” she said.
