Working with Salman Khan is a dream come true for many aspiring Bollywood actresses. Then what about the actresses who have already established their names. Well the craze is still the same as it is none other than Salman Khan. Jacqueline Fernandez who will be next seen opposite Salman Khan in Sajid Nadiadwala's Kick is excited about her big project.
As Salman Khan is a superstar, working with him will definitely give a career kick to the actress which is none other than Jacqueline. Jacqueline said that Salman is till now the best co-star she has worked with. Lets check out how was her experience while working with Salman in Kick.
How was it working with Salman Khan? What quality you liked in the Dabangg star?
I was really comfortable working with Salman Khan. He is such an artist who knows when to crack jokes and when to become serious. The talented actor tries a lot to make his co-stars feel comfortable. I always wanted to work with Salman, and now that I did, I can say that he is a very sweet person.
Salman Khan has helped build the career of many actors and actresses. Do you think working with Salman will help your career as well?
Salman has always been supportive for new stars. He has not only given chance to actresses but actors as well. Salman opened many doors for me after I did Kick. I will not take this lightly, and as an actress I will work harder. Salman Khan will not be with me forever. To make my own career, I have to work hard myself.
Did your Hindi improve after working with Salman?
If there is something I need to work on, then it is my Hindi. Since years I am trying hard to get over this weakness. Salman helped me a lot during the shooting of Kick. Salman encouraged me to talk in Hindi while shooting and dubbing as well. Whenever we went for any interview during promotions, Salman helped me talk in Hindi. No one asked him to do this and he would have not done if he didn't wished to. But I think Salman loves to help people.
Before Kick, you have worked in multi-starrer films. Do you regret doing any film?
I don't have any regrets till now. I have done 5 movies so far and in all the films, I have learned a lot which I used while shooting for Kick. So I can't say that I have done a mistake by doing any film. I think if you say that you did a mistake after doing the film, then it is very shameful.
How excited are you for Kick?
A lot. I have been excited all the time, but now I feel nervous. I really hope people like Kick.
Every person gets a lot of kick in life. Which kick brought Jacqueline to this position?
When I came to Mumbai, I got a lot of kick as I was alone and did not know anyone. I had no house so I used to stay in a guest house. The thought that I was alone and I have to build my career on my own gave me a lot of kick. I was scared but realised that I am grown up now and can stand on my own feet. I am really proud of myself.
These days a lot of Bollywood actresses are trying their hands on many things. Some sing, some produce etc. Have you also thought something like this?
I think these things will happen on their own. I have not thought about it though. If I get any such opportunity then I will give my 100 percent.
Any interest that you would like to pursue as your career alternative?
I have opened my own restaurant in Sri Lanka. Food and hospitality have always been my passion. I love cooking especially Sri Lankan cuisine which is my favourite. I want to popularise this cuisine worldwide. With this restaurant, I will boost and take my hobby further.
What are your next projects?
After Kick, my next movie is Roy, and the shooting will start from next month. I am playing double role in Roy and I am really excited about it.
Fake affair rumours that spread during movie promotions are very common these days. What is you take on it?
To be honest, I don't like such promotions and won't become a part of it. I think you should pay more attention on the story and specialties of the movie so that more and more people watch it. It is wrong to show something which is not true. However, people love doing such fake things which makes the viewer show more interest in the movie. We actors must promote movies with honesty, and not by lying.
After Salman, do you have any desire of working with other Khans?
After Salman Khan, I want to work with other superstars as well. I want to work with all the superstars of Bollywood so that I achieve good in my career.
