Jacqueline Fernandez has made all the right choice of films, right from the time she entered the industry. Her first film (Aladin; 2009) itself was with megastar Amitabh Bachchan. And from there, she continued her streak with films with big stars like Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Salman Khan, Arjun Rampal and Ranbir Kapoor, amongst others. The actor admits that working with the big names in the industry is important for her.
“You have to be part of big movies that have established actors. Working with them helps one grow. I learnt a lot when I did my first movie with Amitabh Bachchan. At the same time, Saif has helped me a lot. He gave me advice on my dialogue delivery without being preachy,” she says.
She also admits that while signing a film, she even takes into account the director of the film. “My priority while signing a film is that the director should be good,” she informs, “It is important how the director narrates the story to me, and how appealing I find them” and that is why she chose to work with first-time directors such as Sajid Nadiadwala (Kick; 2014) and Vikramjit Singh (Roy; 2015).
