2016 has been particularly eventful for Jacqueline Fernandez, with Housefull 3, Dishoom being successful at the box-office and A Flying Jatt – which is slated to hit the screens on 25th August, we’re seeing a lot of her. In between all of this, the 9th season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is keeping Jacqueline busy. She is judging it alongside Ganesh Hegde and Karan Johar.
The previous season of the show has seen phenomenal dancers like Shahid Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit Nene as the judges. This has definitely upped the level of expectations when it comes to Jacqueline’s stint, in a press conference she spoke about it at length –
I am feeling the pressure. I hope I do justice… Honestly, I am not a dance guru. The contestants are better dancers than me. I can judge by seeing how much your performance moved me or the goosebumps it gave me. I don’t want them to see me as a judge. I want them to see me as a mentor, as someone who has come here to encourage them
The actress wants to ditch her gowns and dresses and intends to bring some informality to the show. Just a few episodes into Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and Jacqueline already has a favourite! The actress goes red in the face whenever actor-dancer Shantanu Maheshwari performs.
Fan frenzy aside, there’s no denying that even Bollywood bows down in front of Kabali superstar, Rajnikanth. After having worked with the who’s who of Bollywood, Jacqueline wants to work with the South superstar.
A self proclaimed Rajnikanth fan, the actress decided to take out time to watch Kabali, despite her busy schedule. Now that’s a Jabra fan! We would love to see the Thalaiva and the Sri Lankan beauty create magic on screen.
