Jacqueline Fernandez is gearing up for her her upcoming film Race 2. The actress considers her role in the movies as her most challenging film and says she has worked very hard for it.
Jacqueline said in an interview: “It is the most negative character I have played. It is very challenging to do something like that. I had to tackle each scene with an underlying thought that the character is concealing a deep dark secret. Every character is dark and that is the beauty of the film.”
“It is a nice change. It’s something new to try. It was very challenging. To be this evil person and be negative, you have to work on yourself,” she added.
When asked about how her in Race 2 is different from her previous role in Housefull 2, Jacqueline Fernandez said: “‘Housefull 2’ was like a walk in the park. It was fun, everyone was having a good time. Everything was spontaneous. ‘Race 2’ is more calculative, you have to rehearse. You need to understand that certain messages need to be sent to the audience. So ‘Race 2’ was most challenging.”
With so many films crossing the Rs.100-crore-mark, Jacqueline Fernandez feels the term is overrated now.
She said: “I feel that a lot of films have crossed Rs.100 crore now, I think it has become overrated. Now we should talk about Rs.200 crore.”
She also said that she accepts any role that comes her way. “I don’t have any strategy, I just took whatever came my way. It just happened that these were fantastic offers which just came my way. Things have really started shaping up for me.” she said.
Race 2 also stars Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Amisha Patel. The film is directed by Abbas-Mustan and will hit theaters in Jan.
