I’ve been a huge fan of Amy Dastur (introduced as Amyra Dastur through Issaq – 2013) since I first saw her in the Clean & Clear Facewash campaign, some 2 years ago. She plays the role of a close buddy to Pooja Salvi in the advert. In another Airtel Friends ad, a simple glimpse of Amyra in the song (girl self-posing for her phone camera) elevates the mood of the viewers! Also, who could forget the chirpy cheater in the Micromax Convertible X395 commercial?!
It was all Amy, and she deserves full marks for
stealing the show with her cute face and even cuter smile the success of these unforgettable commercial campaigns.
Of Parsi decent, the 20-year-old Amyra (DOB: 7 May 1993) is a model from Mumbai. She did her schooling from Dhirubhai Ambani International School and pursued bachelors in business from H.R. College of Commerce & Economics.
Miss Alluring Dastur started modelling at 16. She has modelled in TVCs for brands like Dove, Clean and Clear, Micromax and Airtel, among others. Amyra played Juliet in Prateik Babbar and Evelyn Sharma starrer Bollywood film, Issaq (an adaption of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet). Amyra was chosen from over 400 other girls who auditioned for the role of Bachchi (female lead) in the film.
A show reel of her ads:

serious personal note, Prateik Babber can’t be Emraan Hashmi. His Ekk Deewana Tha (with Amy Jackson) was a box office bomb! :-/ He still struggles to carry off the role of a lead protagonist in Issaq. Amyra, on the other hand, playing a Banarasi Belle is not only a delight to watch, but impresses every one with her innocent looks and matured acting skills, being a debutante! 🙂
The trailer of the film can be found here.
Amyra is on Twitter @AmyraDastur93… Go praise her! 🙂
