Akshay taught me a lot about comedy: Jacqueline
Mumbai : Jacqueline Fernandez is giving a shot at comedy once again with “Housefull 3″ and the actress is thankful to Akshay Kumar for teaching her the tricks and tips to do well in the genre.
Directed by Sajid-Farhad, the movie is the third instalment of the comedy franchise “Housefull”.
The film has an ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon.
“I think working with Akshay Kumar has definitely taught me a lot about comedy and comic timing. It is the second time I am part of ‘Housefull’ series. I think you learn a lot when you work with someone whose comic timing is impeccable,” Jacqueline told PTI in an interview.
Besides “Housefull”, the 30-year-old actress is busy with “Flying Jatt” and “Dishoom” and is enjyoing this phase where she is getting to work in an “exciting range of movies.”
Directed by Remo D’Souza, “Flying Jatt” stars Tiger Shroff as superhero and Jacqueline as his love interest.
“It is a superhero film, but gives has a great message. It is not about just about having a superhero. For me it’s a sweet girl-next door role. It is something I haven’t ventured into since ‘Aladin’,” Jacqueline said.
The “Kick” star will be sharing screen space with John and Varun in “Dishoom”, an action film directed by Rohit Dhawan.
However, she will not be seen performing any serious action sequences.
“I get to do very little action, it is more of the boys. But I am part of the scenario,” she added.
