In industry parlance, bagging the female lead in a Salman Khan starrer is quite a coup and by those standards, Jacqueline Fernandez is in an enviable spot.
The actor had been roped in for Remo D’Souza’s dance drama, Go Daddy, opposite Khan. However, recent developments suggest that the superstar has allotted those dates to Race 3, which is also being helmed by D’Souza. Buzz is that Fernandez may land a role in Race 3 as well.
Talking to mid-day, Jacqueline Fernandez reveals, “I’m doing a film with Salman, but I’m not sure which one. The line-up of the film has changed. Right now the slot is open, and Salman and Remo are debating which film to go ahead with.”
While the script may be the barometer to choose a film on other occasions, the actor says she’ll happily make an exception for Salman Khan. “I’m okay with any of the films as long as I get to work with Salman,” she laughs.
Her fondness for Khan is evident. Having worked with him in Kick (2014), she is glad to share screen space with him again in Judwaa 2, where he will be seen in one of the songs. “Having him on the sets was so amazing. He brings in so much of energy. David sir and Sajid Nadiadwala became nostalgic, it was like a mini reunion. Varun [Dhawan], Taapsee [Pannu] and I just kept listening to their stories.”
