Asked when she would start shooting for "Attack", Jacqueline replied: "We will start shooting of the film in January."


On September 30, John had posted a video on Instagram to make a formal announcement of "Attack". The video showed international stunt coordinator Ryan Sturz teaching John how to hold a gun and shoot a target. "Getting ready to "ATTACK" #mynextactionfilm," John had wrote in the caption of the picture.

"Attack" is helmed by debutant director Lakshya Raj Anand and will be produced by John Abraham.


Jacqueline opened up about "Attack" while interacting with the media at the launch of fashion designer Falguni and Shane Peacock's flagship store, which is designed by Gauri Khan.

Talking about her own fashion choices, the actress said: "Fashion is a very important part of being an actor. We do see what's happening in the fashion world and we do see what the trends are, but at the same time it's important people are comfortable in what they wear. I think Falguni and Shane's designs really work for me."
