Amy Jackson was previously offered the role of Samantha Myers from the Bill Gates Foundation in director Mohit Suri’s on-screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel ‘Half Girlfriend’ that stars Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead as Madhav Jha and Riya Somani respectively.
However, things took a turn when she walked out of the film and Rhea Chakraborty stepped into her shoes.
Recently, she revealed to a leading tabloid that she had already given her dates to a British film she will start shooting for in September, and hence could not be a part of ‘Half Girlfriend’.
However, the actress maintains that the role is small but lovely and well-written, and would like to work with Arjun some other time when possible.
Jackson will be next seen in Sohail Khan’s ‘Freaky Ali’.
