Jacqueline is all set to work with Salman Khan in ‘Race 3’ after working in super successful ‘Kick’, Earlier, in a interview, Jacqueline called Salman as her lucky charm so when asked her what kind of equation she shares with Salman, Jacqueline said, “After ‘Kick’, I say this very happily that my career changed a lot for the better. I really do owe a lot to him for that. He put in his faith in me and did a film such as Kick at the time where I didn’t had faith in myself either. That time, we did 200 crore film and now we are doing ‘Race 3’ together. I am excited and hoping to hit that mark again with this film.”
Talking about her character in ‘Race 3’, she said, “It’s a very different role. I am really excited to play my character because it’s actually a role that sees me in very different light. I can say this with lot f honesty because I am finding the role quite challenging to do. Like how it was in Race 1 and 2, in this film also, all the character has shed of negativity. They all are negative until you see who actually is good guy and the bad guy. Now that we have Salman onboard and Remo is directing it so it’s completely new take on Race as a franchise, so it will be exciting”
Talking about success of Judwaa 2, Jacqueline said, “I am really excited. Its feels amazing when your film does well but the kind of love and acceptance, we received with Judwaa 2 is something that made me, Varun and Taapsee really happy. David sir has been most confident throughout and always believed in us and the film as well but we used to be always in stress and scared about it. Now that it’s actually happened with the collection and more importantly the appreciation from the audience that is really rewarding.”

I think he is such a talented person. I got the opportunity to work with him twice, first in Dishoom and now in Judwaa 2, so I think he is one of the coolest people you can ever get to know.”
When asked Jacqueline, according to her who is fittest actress in bollywood, she said, “I think someone who is very fit is probably Deepika because she plays lot of badminton so she is really cool.”
