Jacqueline Fernandez has played the pretty girl-next-door once too often. Now, the actress is set to shed that image, and will be seen as a tough cop in “Race 3” alongside Salman Khan.
DNA India quoted an inside source as saying: “Jacqueline has an interesting character in this thriller. She will be the one at the helm of things, who will be inspecting the whole situation, much like Abhishek Bachchan in the Dhoom series.”
Anil Kapoor, who was part of the previous two installments of the film is missing in “Race 3” as the makers wanted to change the role of the tough cop character. So they changed the gender and made it a police-woman.
“Given that this is a speed-based thriller, Jackie will have a lot of action sequences and stunts, which she will do herself,” the insider was also quoted as saying.
This will be a first for the actress, who, except one scene in “A Gentleman”, hasn't got the chance to showcase her badass side, despite being part of several films in the genre like “Flying Jatt”, “Race 2” and “Kick”.
Jacqueline, who is currently busy promoting “Judwaa 2”, will soon start filming “Race 3”. “Salman is also back after wrapping 'Tiger Zinda Hai'. He will sit with the whole team of makers and directors and finalise everything. The film will roll sometime in October,” the report said.
