New Delhi, May 27: Actress Jacqueline Fernandez is making rounds these days. Last week the actress parted her ways with Director Sajid Khan ending her three year long relationship.
Now it has come to light that she has surpassed Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha to pair up with Salman Khan in his high-octane action drama ‘Kick'.
The Sri Lankan beauty has worked with numerous big banner flicks among which Race 2 and Housefull 2 were the part of the elite club of Rs. 100 cr.
Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha were being contacted for the flick, but finally Jacqueline, out of nowhere, grabbed the opportunity.
The flick will mark the directorial debut of Sajid Nadiadwala, who has confirmed the news.
A source close to him said, “Nadiadwala wanted a fresh pair. And that's why he thought of several names before zeroing in on Jacqueline and Deepika. No one knew about Jacqueline even being considered for the role, but she has managed to bag it. Nadiadwala and Salman are impressed with her work.”
Well, surely the ‘Lat lag gayi' girl with her oomph and acting skills has impressed Nadiadwala and Salman Khan.
It is also known that the action in the flick is entirely of international standard for which Sajid has roped in Hollywood cinematographer Alexander Witt.
Witt has worked on films like Pirates of the Caribbean and Skyfall while well known stunt directors Phillipe Guegan and Spiro Razatos will also implant some edge of the seat action sequences.
