Chennai: Actress Amala Akkineni, who has played a few cameo roles in the last few years, says she's only open to do such roles but has no plans of getting into full-fledged acting as she already has too much on her plate.

The 47-year old currently heads Annapurna International School of Film & Media (AISFM), and is also an animal activist and a co-founder of Blue Cross of Hyderabad.

"I am not looking at full-time acting. I wear many hats and I am extremely satisfied with what I am doing right now. I am in leadership position in all the organizations I'm associated with so it is not that I'm looking for more," Amala told IANS.

Explaining why she prefers doing cameo roles, she said: "I would definitely consider doing cameos because it is important for me as being in education for cinema, film and media I must be in touch with the industry I am educating for".

"It is a crucial part of my understanding and being relevant in education."

"Every year I get two calls from reputed directors' camps who ask me, 'Amala will you come? I have absolutely lovely cameo for you'. I show up and I make that connect and understand more of what I have to prepare the younger generation for," she added.

Last seen on the big screen in Mohit Suri's 'Hamari Adhuri Kahani', Amala will next star with Kamal Haasan.

"It was a pleasant surprise. Kamal sir asked me 'Are you still acting, Amala?' I said 'yes sir but only cameos'. Meaning I can't up-and-out my family and commitments and relocate to another city, but I can do it for 10 days," she said.

"He sent Malayalam director (T.K. Rajeev Kumar) to narrate me the script. And it was very touching and a relevant film. They will be filming it in US in February. I'm excited to be a part of it," she revealed.
