Just who is Amyra Dastur!

  • Amyra Dastur is just two films old in the industry, but in the real sense 'Mr X' could be considered as her big ticket to the world of Bollywood. The actress will be seen playing the love interest of an invisible man in Vikram Bhatt’s ‘Mr X’.

  • Amyra is a true blue Parsi girl and did her schooling from Cathedral School, Mumbai. Later, when she joined Dhirubhai Ambani School, she started doing modeling at the same time. It was during her 12th standard that she auditioned for the now forgotten ‘Issaq’ and managed to grab the offer.

  • Her debut Hindi film 'Issaq' was a disaster at the box office where she was paired opposite Prateik Babbar. The film was a modern day take on Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' set against the backdrop of UP hinterland. The numerous roadblocks the film suffered during its release was also a tiding of its box office performance. From day one the film was a no-starter at the box office.

  • 'Issaq' had Amyra in the role of Bachchi Kashyap and her inexperience showed on the screen. Amidst stalwarts like Makrand Deshpande and Ravi Kisan she was at sea. Coupled with a poor screenplay and average music the film could manage only a crore in its first three days of its release. In a nut shell the producers lost heavily on the film.
