Jacqueline Fernandez’s career seems to have elevated to the next level. After working opposite Salman in Kick, she seems to have become a favorite of Salman Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala.
Jacqueline will also feature in Salman Khan’s upcoming film to be directed by Remo D’Souza. And now the buzz is that she has been roped in for Kick 2 as well.
So has Jacqueline replaced Katrina as Salman’s favorite?
Doesn’t seem so, says an insider. “All the roles that have gone to Jacqueline have been rejected by Katrina,” reveals a close friend of Salman.
Did you know?
Jacqueline initially turned down the erotic thriller Murder 2, with Emraan Hashmi as she was thinking of moving back to Sri Lanka after her initial failures. Finally, Mahesh Bhatt convinced her to take up the role.
Kick 2, opposite Salman Khan, is the highlight of Jacqueline’s career. Jacqueline says she had become so used to playing second leads and featuring in item songs, that when she first got a call from Sajid Nadiadwala for Kick, she thought she would be offered only an item number. She says that it took something as big as Salman Khan’s Kick to regain her lost confidence.
