She added: "I think both the industries are really going to merge, and they have already started merging. So, I haven't put 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."

Amyra forayed in in 2013 with "Issaq", went on to do Tamil film "Anegan", Hindi film "Mr. X", Sino-Indian co-production "Kung Fu Yoga". She will also team up with Tridha Choudhury, Sundeep Kishan in a new yet-untitled Telugu coming-of-age romantic drama.

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