Tigmanshu planned to cast Jacqueline in Jai Ramji after checking out the stills of Murder 2, wherein she is comfortably cuddling up the serial kisser, Emraan Hashmi. After roping in Preity Zinta and Jacqueline for the film, Dhulia is looking forward to team up more glamorous ladies for the film.
Though the film will have a small town back drop, with a rustic look, it will however not cut out the glamour quotient from the film. "This is a logic we've inherited from the art-house films where realism was equated with a lack of glamour. My film is set in a small town. But it will feature sexy glamorous Bollywood actresses. We need to break the stereotypical image of the non-metropolitan cinema as being dry and unexciting. I think women in small town can be very sexy," explains director Tigmanshu.
Jacqueline will play Rampal's wife in Jai Ramji, which will add an element of urbane glamour to the rustic saga. Says the director, “Her role is very similar to Pooja Batra's in Priyadarshan's Viraasat. Remember the girl from abroad who comes to Anil Kapoor's village? Jacqueline faces the same cultural heat. Suddenly this metropolitan girl from Mumbai has to go and live in Lucknow with her husband. She resents the heat, dust and boredom. Jacqueline was perfect for the part since she has the correct body language of the city-bred girl placed in a semi-rural environment."
Though Arjun and Jacqueline are not the first timers with intimate scenes (Arjun's love-making sequence with Shruti Sen in Raajneeti and Jacqueline's in Murder 2), Tigmashu will make them undergo a love-making workshop, so that they get comfortable with each other before the original shoot.
