After ‘Housefull 3’ opened in June, Jaqueline Fernandez flew off to Miami to shoot for Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s untitled ‘Bang Bang’ sequel.
The rumour mills were buzzing then about the Sidharth Malhotra-Alia Bhatt breakup and there were speculations in plenty about the 31-year-old actor’s growing closeness with Jackie.
Alia and Sid are now back together and Jackie brushes off all the gossip, saying, “Obviously people want to believe what they want to and will write what they want. I’m an easy target because I’m single. There is no point in clarifying anything.”
For her, the shoot with a ‘chilled out’ Sid was lots of fun with parties, a visit to Disneyland with her nephew and water sports. “I wanted to get a tattoo done but then realised that it might stop me from all the water fun,” says the 30-year-old actress who has Sri Lankan origins and is looking forward to the second schedule in September.
But before that, she has two releases coming up. One is Rohit Dhawan’s buddy cop thriller ‘Dishoom’ in which she plays an aide to Varun Dhawan and John Abraham who are on the hunt for an abducted cricketer.
This will be followed by ‘A Flying Jatt’ with Tiger Shroff as a turbaned superhero and Jackie playing the damsel in distress.
Like Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, Jackie too would like to foray into Hollywood but for now is concentrating on her next English film, ‘According to Matthew’, filmed in her home country. It is a real life film about a Christian priest who was jailed for killing the husband of a woman who falls prey to his powers. It’s my first portrayal of a real life character and will release in September in Sri Lanka, followed by a few festival rounds,” she informs. – CINEWS
