Jacqueline Fernandez is no doubt one of the most popular actresses in Bollywood, she was adamant to be the leading lady in the sequel, and recommended herself for the role through Bollywood famous actress Salman Khan.
Jacqueline has broken an almost-norm in Bollywood, whereby leading ladies are never repeated in a sequel: The actress has bagged the leading lady’s part in Kick 2, which will be directed by producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
In particular, Jacqueline beat out beauty queen Manushi Chhillar for the role.
“She made sure she got Kick 2, no matter how. Jacqueline recommended herself to Nadiadwala through Salman Khan. She just wouldn’t take a rebuff in her stride. As far as Jacqueline was concerned, her name was engraved on the heroine’s role in Kick 2. The idea of any other heroine in Kick 2 was kicked out,” says a source.
