BOLLYWOOD: Jacqueline Fernandez first worked with Salman Khan in Kick in 2014. Four years later the duo are set to reunite for Race 3, but th actress says she still gets nervous while working with the star.
Race 3 is the third film in the action franchise. Apart from Khan and Fernandez, the new entrants to this popular series are Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem. Only Anil Kapoor, who has been part of the previous two instalments, has been retained.
“I was still as nervous during my first shot with Salman as I was when I was during Kick. It’s crazy, but it happened, may be because that’s his energy. I am sure once we shoot a little bit more, I’ll be calmer,” said Fernandez.
The Judwaa 2 star said the equation between her and Khan has undergone a significant change over the years.
“During Kick, I was not even able to ask a question, I was so nervous! Now I am asking questions, discussing more things. He is always there to help and give advice. But it’s during the first initial shots, where I was like ‘why am I getting so nervous!,’” said Fernandez
The previous two instalments had Saif Ali Khan as the main lead, but Khan has now replaced him. Remo D’Souza has taken over the project from director duo Abbas-Mustan.
The 32-year-old actor is happy to be working with the team, who she has already worked with before.
“I am working with a team that I am very familiar with. Remo, Ramesh Taurani [producer] – I was part of Race 2 – and even our DoP [director of photography] is the same, Ayananka Bose. So it’s a team that I’m very comfortable with,” she adds.
When asked if there will be a lot of action in the film, Fernandez said, “We are going to push the limits with the action this time.”
