Amrit made her Bollywood debut with 2014 film "Mad About Dance", which went unnoticed and "Angry Indian Goddesses", billed as India's first all-out female buddy film, seems to be her big ticket in showbiz.
"I would love to work with Ranbir Kapoor. I think he is a brilliant and a fantastic actor. I also like Randeep Hooda. He is amazing as well. I have followed Indian films a lot and I love Anurag Kashyap," Amrit told PTI.
"Angry Indian Godesses" also stars Sandhya Mridul, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Sarah-Jane Dias, Anushka Manchanda.
Amrit, who is of Indian, English and Scottish origin, said she had a blast working with these actresses and there was not a single moment of 'actresses-rivalry', the industry is famous for.
"We got along like house on fire. I have huge amount of respect for all my co-stars. They are such fabulous actors.
All are extremely talented, from Sandhya Mridul, Tanishtha Chatterjee to Anushka Manchanda.
"They were very supportive and I am still friends with all of them and we are in touch with each other."
The movie marks Nalin's Bollywood directorial debut and Amrit feels he is the kind of director every actor would love to work with.
"It was an amazing experience working with Nalin. He is so funny, and the kind of director every actor wants to work with. He is so patient... Imagine working with so many women together. But he did not lose his patience," the actress said in a lighter vein.
Amrit is currently seen in long-running British soap opera "Hollyoaks" but she is willing to balance her work in the UK and here, given she gets "interesting" offers in Bollywood.
"I am open to more Bollywood films if I get exciting offers and opportunities to work with interesting people."
The actress began her career as a dancer dancing for the likes of Kanye West and Guns N' Roses. In India, she first made her mark as a model for cosmetic and clothing brands before venturing into acting.
Amrit said her journey from a background dancer to a mainstream actress has been nothing less than a dream.
"When I look back, it feels surreal. Now, I feel anything is possible because when I was a dancer, I never knew I would come so far in my career. My India experience has been very special too. It has helped me grow in my career and as a human being. It felt like coming back to roots. It has been great knowing a place, I have my origin in."
