Asked about her thoughts on Parineeti’s dance number “Jaaneman aah” in “Dishoom”, Jacqueline told IANS, “I loved the song. I thought she was looking amazing. I thought she was the most amazing choice for the song. She dances so well and she looks so good. She added a touch of glamour to the film and I am glad that she was a part of the movie.”
In the special number, Varun and Parineeti are seen sharing a sizzling chemistry. At the end of the song, Varun and Parineeti are seen sharing a kiss on screen which was Varun’s input. The duo got two days to practice for the song and it was shot in just one take. Parineeti is doing a cameo in the film. Choreographer Ahmed Khan has choreographed the dance sequence in the song.
Jacqueline, who is from Sri Lanka, also feels things have changed for actresses in showbiz.
So, are writers coming up with more interesting scripts for actresses in Bollywood?
She said: “Absolutely, there is definitely a change in Bollywood for actresses. Writers are coming up with more interesting scripts for the actresses. Besides, I also feel actresses have taken a stand… They have put their foot down and are working towards more female-centric roles. It’s a great thing.”
Directed by Rohit Dhawan, “Dishoom’, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Eros International Media Ltd, is set to hit the screens on Friday.
