It was quite surprising for the media and the audiences when they saw young Jacqueline Fernandez playing a mother to a small kid in the upcoming release ‘Brothers’ as actresses refrain from donning such hats when they are top of their game.
But it wasn’t easy to convince her for the role and her ‘Kick’ co-star and superstar Salman Khan played a huge role in convincing her.
According to a report published in DNA, Jacqueline Fernandez was quoted as saying, “Both the Karans (Johar and Malhotra) came to me with the story of Brothers. I met them at the office and he told me what this movie is about and that they wanted me to play Jenny Fernandes. I was like, ‘Why would they want me in the film?’ I was a little apprehensive about taking on an intense role like this. You are playing a mother and there are too many stereotypes attached to that. So I was a little sceptical.”
She added, “I discussed it with Salman and he convinced me to say yes. He told me it would benefit me and that here was a chance for me to prove myself through performance and I should not worry about the glamour and styling taking it away. I thought if I could pull this off, it would be fantastic for me and my credentials as an actor. I pretty much owe it to Karan and Salman for believing that I could carry off the role.”
