The Sri Lankan beauty not only set the screen on fire with her vivacious personality, she also got talking about Salman Khan, Murder 2 and much more
After making her debut in Sujoy Ghosh's Aladin in 2009, Jacqueline Fernandez had to wait for nearly 5 years before she reached the peak of popularity after Salman Khan's Kick.
With interesting films like Housefull 3 and Dishoom in her kitty, Jacqueline is one of the most sought after actresses in the industry. We all know how charming Jacqueline is on big screen, but she was equally stunning in the talk show Look Who's Talking season 2 with Niranjan Iyengar. Here are a few startling revelations which the Brothers actress made in the show:
My flat broker taught me Hindi before Aladin audition
When she got an audition call from Sujoy Ghosh for Aladin, Jacqueline, who was modelling in India, didn't knew how to speak Hindi. In the show, Jacqueline revealed that her flat broker taught her a Hindi tongue twister just before the audition. And that was the only line in Hindi she knew. Jacqueline expressed her amazement and wondered out loud how she got the part
I said no to Murder 2
One of the stepping stones in Jacqueline's career is her erotic thriller flick Murder 2 with Emraan Hashmi. But did you that she had initially turned down the role and was contemplating on moving back to Srilanka after intial failures in films. Jacqueline, who never considered herself sensuous enough to pull such a role in Murder 2, had to be convinced by Mahesh Bhatt to take up the role. And, we are really glad that she did Murder 2.
Working in Kick 2 with Salman Khan was life changing
Kick 2 opposite Salman Khan will always be the most important film in Jacqueline's career and even she accepted it. Jacqueline revealed that when she first got a call from Sajid Nadiadwala for Kick, she thought she would be offered only an item number. Jacqueline revealed that she had become so comfortable playing second leads and featuring in item songs, that it took something as big as Salman Khan's Kick to regain her lost confidence. She also added that Salman Khan is the hottest Bollywood actor.
Hollywood has always been my dream
Jacqueline had mentioned that India and Bollywood happened by chance. She had initially set her eyes on Hollywood and is now a part of few international projects. Jacqueline revealed that she has become so comfortable delivering lines in Hindi that working in an English film seemed to be surprisingly tough.
Having great time with Nargis and Lisa in Housefull 3
Jacqueline revealed that she was quite amused when Sajid Nadiadwala had chosen herself, Nargis and Lisa as female leads in Housefull 3, as none of them knew Hindi well. Having said that, Jacqueline mentioned that it was the need of their roles and she had great time working Nargis and Lisa. More often than not, they would end up gossiping and having gala time at shooting.
Sonam and I are great friends because we aren't insecure
Responding to the cliched statement that no two actresses in industry can be friends, Jacqueline revealed that she and Sonam are great friends cos they are never insecure of each other. Though both of them may vie for the same roles sometimes, they both know their boundaries and they know who would look good doing a certain kind of role.
I couldn't speak to Amitabh Bachchan
While shooting for Aladin with Riteish Deshmukh and Amitabh Bachchan, Jacqueline revealed that she never had the guts to talk to someone as legendary as Amitabh Bachchan. Once he had asked her if she would like to have hot chocolate, and she didn't know how to talk too Big B.
Arjun Kapoor and I laugh at link up rumours
Jacqueline revealed that when you are friends with a person and then a link up rumour comes up, then it becomes easier too handle. That's what happened when dating rumours of Jacqueline and Arjun cropped up. The bubbly actress revealed that she and Arjun used to laugh at these rumours.
