Jacqueline Fernandez kicks it in Bollywood!

The Sri Lankan beauty is revving up her Bollywood career…and how! First up, the sultry actress has bagged Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick opposite Salman Khan. The B-town beauty left behind Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra in the race for the role

She came into B-town with roles and films that did not help her career – Aladin and Jaane Kahaan Se Aayi Hai come to mind. But now, after Housefull, Murder 2 and Race 2, Jacqueline Fernandez has impressed quite a few directors and post her break-up with director Sajid Khan, her Bollywood career has taken a complete ‘U’ turn…for good, wethinks. The leggy lass seems to be making all the right moves, professionally speaking. Besides Salman Khan in Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick, Jackie will also be seen romancing Bollywood’s loverboy Ranbir Kapoor on the big screen very soon we hear, in Roy. With two big projects in her kitty, this is just the start of the gal’s journey to stardom in Bollywood.

Not long ago, Jackie’s career seemed to be going downhill fast thanks to overprotective then-beau Sajid Khan. She reportedly lost out on films like Krrish 3 and Jism 2 because of Sajid’s possessiveness and his rules about her clothes, her makeup, her roles and everything else. But now that Jackie is a free bird and taking control of her own work life, wethinks her stint in moviedom will be much more fruitful. With Sajid no longer in the picture, we are sure to see more of Jacqueline’s bold and beautiful avatar on the big screen, which will be a huge selling point with filmmakers and the audience. And as far as acting goes, she has proved her mettle in blockbuster films like Murder 2 and Housefull 2.

Looks like the race has just re-started for Jackie – and we won’t be surprised if she gives other Bollywood hotties a run for their money!
