Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez is all set to shake a leg to the famous song ‘Ek Do Teen’ in the upcoming movie ‘Baaghi 2’.
The ‘Kick’ actress wrapped up the song on Saturday at the YRF Studios in Mumbai and interacted with the media later on. She was all praises for the dancing diva Madhuri Dixit-Nene and said that no one can like her.
The actress said she feels blessed to be a part of the song and to get an opportunity to dance on the foot-tapping number from the 1988 iconic movie ‘Tezaab’.
“I feel really blessed that I have been given this opportunity by director Ahmed Khan, Sajid Nadiadwala and master ji Ganesh Acharya. I always knew that I never ever would be able to match up Madhuri Dixit and that's not even something I am going to even attempt because you cannot replicate someone like Madhuri Dixit. There is only one Madhuri Dixit and I know that this is just my tribute to her,” she said.
On asked if there was any pressure while re-creating the iconic song, Jacky said, “I think that was my first stress that how can we recreate something so iconic like 'is it even possible'. It made a lot easier for me when I understood that it's not possible, we are not trying to match up to what Madhuri Dixit and Saroj (Khan) ji did.”
On questioned whether she will be taking Madhuri’s help, she said, “I have connected with Madhuri ji. We will be chatting little more about how the song went once it done because right now, I am under lot of stress. My only focus over the past week has been this one song and of course, they (Madhuri and Saroj Khan) will be the first persons to whom we will show the song. We have already taken their blessings.”
Baaghi 2, starring Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani, will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and is the sequel of the 2016 film, ‘Baaghi’. The film is slated to release on March 30.
Apart from this, Jacqueline will be seen in Remo D’ Souza’s ‘Race 3’, along with Salman Khan, Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor, Daisy Shah, and Saqib Saleem.
