Actress Amyra Dastur, who has worked in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu films, has announced her Punjabi film debut. The actress will be seen in the upcoming movie Furteela alongside Jassie Gill. The film will be directed by Amar Hundal, who is known for his action films Warning (2021), Babbar (2022) and the upcoming Warning 2.

Speaking about this, she said, "This conveys the message that we should not stereotype people from particular cultures. For example, actor Samantha Prabhu is set to break into the Hindi film industry. It is a significant step forward because we are becoming more accepting of people from various backgrounds."

“I aspire to become a pan-Indian star, which is the whole point of the attraction. We have had this whole regional thing going on for so long, but now, especially in this industry” She added, “People are open to making a wide variety of films.”

She quotes the popularity of films such as RRR and KGF, saying, "This proves that it does not depend on the location or the language of a film; If it is a fantastic film, everyone will see it.”

This blurring of lines, she believes, also helps actors broaden their horizons. "It opens up a lot of opportunities for us. There is a lot of work to be done. People are now willing to collaborate with someone from outside the region, such as myself, who does not speak Punjabi but is working on a Punjabi film.”

Although she did not offer many details, Dastur said that the film is a coming-of-age story.
