Jacqueline Fernandez: Wasn't sure if I'd be able to offer support to KICK

KICK has done well over the weekend and would comfortably sail past the 100 crore mark by tomorrow. This would also mean third film starring Jacqueline Fernandez to be achieving this feat after HOUSEFULL 2 (which was again produced by her KICK director Sajid Nadiadwala) and 'RACE 2. Though both these films were multi starrers, for Jacqueline 'Kick' is all the more special since this is her first solo starrer to do so.
"There was added pressure on me to perform since KICK is such a huge movie. In fact a lot of people didn't even expect me to be a part of such a movie. Why to say anything about others, honestly even I never saw me being a part of such a big opportunity. I wasn't sure whether I would be able to offer support to a film like this," says Jacqueline who waited for a while before picking and choosing her next film after RACE 2.
For Jacqueline, what worked most was the emotional connect that she brought to the narrative of KICK. Though she did have her high point in the form of 'Jumme Ki Raat', for most of the film she was required to walk a thin rope of being sober and quiet without turning into a boring-and-forever-weeping character.
"What complimented me in a big way was Salman Khan since he brought in so much powerful energy on the scene even without saying much," she says, "I guess there are some things that come naturally to him. So while he excelled in that, I had to work hard on everything, be it acting or looking good."
Well, by the look of things, all of that has paid off after all.
