Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez says she was initially scared of 7-feet high Australian actor and retired professional wrestler Nathan Jones, but later bonded well while working on “A Flying Jatt”. Jones, who was seen in Hollywood movies like “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “Troy”, “The Condemned” and a Tamil film last year, has forayed into Bollywood with “A Flying Jatt”.
“First time when I saw Nathan, he looked scary. I used to talk to Nathan about Hollywood, I would ask him about how it is working with this or that actor or actress. We used to gossip about Hollywood. It was cool. I enjoyed his company,” Jacqueline told PTI. The “Kick” actress reveals both her co stars from “A Flying Jatt” - Nathan and Tiger Shroff are introverts.
“Both Tiger and Nathan are introverts. But when you put them in front of camera Nathan would scream, shout and Tiger would become a superhero so he did action and stuff. It is just amazing to work with people like that. They are nice and calm people,” the 31-year-old actress said.
In Remo D’Souza directed superhero film “ A Flying Jatt”, Jacqueline will be seen romancing Tiger. “Romance can look sparkling even if the actors have not spoken to each other. Sparks can happen on screen even if you don’t know the opposite person well.
Even though Tiger is an introvert, we had some common things between us like fitness and we both are driven by our work,” she said. Jacqueline said the “Heropanti” actor is someone who gives you space and respect.
“Once the camera is on, we got into our character so easily and we were also comfortably while romancing with each other on screen. Tiger is funny and thoughtful and dreams a lot,” Jacqueline said.
“I found the idea amusing. I felt it was a creative and different idea. When he (Remo) narrated the role to me I found the character (of Tiger) cute and adorable. It (superhero film) was something I had not done,” she said.
“Superhero films are not made often and considering they are family entertainers I was excited to be part of the film,” Jacqueline added. The "Housefull 3" actress says she was never apprehensive about playing a superhero's love interest in the film.
"I have grown up watching superhero and fairy tale stories. Superhero has a love interest. It's a rare thing to play characters like that.
"Especially now as lot of different parts are written. It is all fantasy as you get to romance a superhero and fly. I wanted to do a film like this," Jacqueline said.
