Jacqueline: On a roll with Hrithik..


By Hindustan Times

NEW DELHI, Sept. 24 -- Ex-Sri Lankan beauty queen-turned-actor Jacqueline Fernandes feels lucky to be working with actor Hrithik Roshan. She has just replaced Chitrangda Singh in Krissh 3 and will play the role of a female mutant.

Jacqueline says, "I am excited and gearing up for my first action film." She has, in the past, shot an ad with the film's lead actor, Hrithik Roshan when she was new to the city and hadn't done any films. She says, "I was a random 'foreign' model and he was a huge star. I saw him at an award function later, but I didn't think he would remember me. Even after signing Krissh 3, I didn't think he would recall me from the ad."

So, has she met Hrithik yet? "We haven't met after signing the film. I had a narration and meeting with Rakesh Roshan (director). I don't know the dates yet," she says. Is she upset about not being considered for Murder 3, since she was part of the second franchise? "The Bhatts have created a Bond-like franchise and people want to see who the next Murder girl would be. It's better if they get another actor for the next one."
