These are exciting times for Jacqueline Fernandez as she is looking at a potential hat trick with her current slate of films. While MURDER 2 and HOUSEFULL 2 have already emerged as two back to back franchise successes for her, her RACE 2 is looking good as well with her character being a fresh inclusion in the sequel. Even as one waits to hear more announcements from the Sri Lankan beauty, the girl is taking it easy.
"Let me revel in the success of HOUSEFULL 2 for a while," she smiles, "Things are looking their best today and I would be ready for some announcements after a little break."
One can well understand where Jackie is coming from. After all, her Miss Sri Lanka stint was over half a decade back and while she was continuously being a part of the glamour world, it was Bollywood where she indeed wanted to make it big.
"I do feel that I have been around for quite a while. My journey too hasn't been all that quick though I am sure these films will take me a long way. It just warms my heart that now in HOUSEFULL 2 I see myself playing the kind of role which I had envisioned for myself", she lights up here.
"It is fabulous that my mom and dad are watching me in such quintessential commercial cinema. Now that's what the core of Bollywood movies is all about. Being seen as an Indian girl in full-on bridal attire is a dream, especially when it is for the big screen. HOUSEFULL 2 made it possible for me", she adds, "It is time to move on to RACE 2. I would be seen in an altogether different avatar there because Abbas-Mustan have their own way of presenting their girls. Wait and watch!"
