Jacqueline, on being asked about collaborating with the actor-director duo of Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty in Sooryavanshi, said that;
Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar are actually still casting for that. So no, there is no truth to the rumours!
The actress admitted that she shares a great work relationship with the lead actor of the film, Akshay Kumar.
I would love to work with Akshay Kumar, he is one of the most inspiring actors I have ever worked with. He has great work ethic. But ‘Sooryavanshi’, is a franchise by Rohit Shetty, it’s going to be amazing – let’s see!
While Jacqueline has a number of films in her kitty already, she is yet to foray into the Digital space for content. On being asked in the interview whether she plans to break the ice soon, she said,
It’s definitely a space that I will be venturing into, in the next few months. What I love about the space is that there is so much creative liberty.
