After the riveting success of HOUSEFULL 2 and MURDER 2, Jacqueline Fernandez celebrated a hat trick with KICK, her third 100-crore grossing film. She immediately graduated to the big league and was cast opposite Ranbir Kapoor in ROY, which also went on to do encouraging business at the box office.
Jackie who has had a packed year so far, shooting for her films on home turf and her international projects, is now back in the public limelight with Dharma Productions’ Brothers and Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s BANGISTAN. As both the trailers recently released online, Jacqueline fans were in for a treat, as they got a glimpse of the actress essaying two completely different roles – one in which she plays a young mother and wife and the other in an out-and-out comic space.
Says a source, “Jacqueline is a hot-favourite with filmmakers – Not only is she a part of big ticket projects but is also essaying significant roles in them, where she shares equal screen space with A-list actors. She bagged the role in Akshay Kumar and Siddharth Malhotra’s BROTHERS, which will explore her talent as an actress as she goes de-glam with nothing to distract from her performance.
She was also roped in for BANGISTAN in a very special appearance , which the makers felt would make the film more saleable. Comedy is something that comes to her naturally and something she enjoys doing.
