Mumbai, March 30 -- Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez, who is shooting for two films simultaneously, is trying to make time to prepare for her role in director Rohit Dhawan's next.
The film that will star Varun Dhawan opposite Jacqueline will apparently see the Sri Lankan model in an action role. While the makers are yet to give her details about what the part exactly entails, she is doing her bit by learning the martial art form called Kalaripayattu. "She has found a school in Kerala that trains people in this particular martial art," says a source.
As soon as Jacqueline will finish work on director Karan Malhotra's upcoming film with Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra, she will head to this school in Thiruvananthapuram for a week.
"In the second week of April, she will depart for Kerala. She will keep visiting the martial arts school as and when she has the time in the coming months," says the source. Jacqueline confirmed the development, saying, "I shall be travelling soon to learn Kalaripayattu."
