Jacqueline Fernandez is the newest addition to action entertainer ‘Bachchan Pandey’. She has joined Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon and Arshad Warsi on this fun ride which is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. “I was very new to the industry when I did the ‘Dhanno’ song in Housefull for Nadiad and our bond & friendship goes way back then. I am elated to be back working with him and ‘Bachchan Pandey’ will mark our 8th film together after ‘Judwaa’ and ‘Housefull’ series. I can’t wait to reunite with Akshay once again. It’s a crazy mad ride always with him and I am sure we will have a blast together,” shared an excited Jacqueline.
Speaking about the shoot schedule Jacqueline added, “I’m looking forward to begin the shoot in January with them. I can’t spill the beans on my character yet but I can tell you it’s a totally different avatar. This film will be an altogether different experience for us as we would be shooting in the new normal owing to the on-going pandemic but as we say the show must go on. With the precautions and norms for Covid -19 which would be taken care of, I am extremely excited to be in my ‘Happy Place’ with Sajid, Akshay and have a gala time.”
Jacqueline recently wrapped the shooting of ‘Bhoot Police’ with Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor and Yami Gautam in Dharamsala. “I have just finished shooting for a film while the other one is going on and I’m set to roll for Bachchan Pandey soon post which I’ll be back with Nadiad directing Salman & and me for ‘Kick 2’,” she concludes. Jacqueline is scheduled to shoot for ‘Bachchan Padeny’ with Akshay, Kriti and Arshad from the first week of January in Jaisalmer. Directed by Farhad Samji, the film will be reportedly shot in Gadisar Lake and Jaisalkot.
