Friday, 7 August : “Salman will always be that special person in my life because he was able to change my career. I will never ever forget what he has done for me. On the personal front too, he has advised me as a friend and family, something I couldn’t have even asked for,” Jacqueline told PTI.
The actress, who played Salman’s leading lady in 2014 superhit “Kick”, said the film took her career to a new height. “Salman is genuinely a nice man who helps people. He is someone who I trust blindly. I think he has been an important person in my life,” she said, adding that she even seeks advise from the “Dabangg” star regarding her films. “I do take his advise as he knows the best. He knows what works, he understands the audience well. He also told me that whosoever’s advice I take, ultimately final decision has to be mine,” Jacqueline said.
The “Roy” star said after “Kick” she signed three films this year and is looking forward to shoot five movies next year. “After ‘Kick’, this year I did three films. Next year I will be hopefully shooting five films. ‘Kick’ has taken me where I had wished to be.. It is because ‘Kick’ happened, I got the opportunity to work every day,” she said. “Kick” producer Sajid Nadiadwala and Salman would be teaming up again for the sequel “Kick 2” but without Jacqueline. “I would miss being part of ‘Kick 2’. But the great part is I was part of the first project and no one can take that away from me,” the 29-year-old actress said.
Jacqueline will be seen next in “Bangistan” which hit the screens today alongside Riteish Deshmukh and Pulkit Samrat, and opposite Akshay Kumar in Karan Malhotra’s “Brothers”.
