Jacqueline Fernandez who is gearing up for her upcoming film ‘A Gentlemen’ on Tuesday in an interview said she chose ‘A Gentlemen’ because of Raj and D.K.
Jacqueline was asked why she chose the film ‘A Gentlemen’, she said “When this film came to me I was most excited because Raj and Dk were the directors. They seem very fun, I love their aesthetics I loved ‘Go Goa Gone’, I just thought it was something really funny and different and youthful. ‘Shor in the city’ had really nice analytic drama. I just felt like they were directors who could do both.
Working with good directors is very important you can learn a lot from them and I feel like they can extract a lot from you. And I feel like I am at the point where I want as much extraction as possible. That’s why I wanted to work with them. I thought they would make something real. I like that they mellowed me down a lot and made me more real and relatable as an actor.”
Jacqueline who has been working in Action films like ‘Brothers’, ‘Race’ and ‘Kick’ finally got a chance to be a part of the action when asked about the same she said, “There is a lot of action in the film, I have done little bit of it, not that much. My character ends up into a situation where she has to. It is out of her world to actually do something like that but she still manages somehow.”
She further adds, “It’s literally upsetting for me because I have been a part of so many action movies but I never get the chance to do anything. Unfortunately, I haven’t been given an opportunity to do a film where I get to do all the action.”
Jacqueline also spoke about her international film titled ‘According to Mathew’, she said, “That will release in September in Sir Lanka. The film was shot in English I don’t think it will be released in India. It’s an artistic film, its story is very famous in Sri Lanka. It will do a few Film festivals and if it does well there then it will then come here in India.
A Gentleman directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK starring Sidharth Malhotra, Jacqueline Fernandez as lead and Sunil Shetty in a negative role is set to release in August 2017.
