While many Bollywood actors go through strenuous workout regimes to get fit for their looks in different films, Jacqueline Fernandez had to do the opposite. She was asked to put on weight for her role in Kick, which also stars Salman Khan. So far, she has gained seven kilos in just two months.
The actor has been indulging her inner gourmand to gain weight. “Jacqueline wants to play her character to the T. And for that, she has left no stone unturned. She has completely stopped working out and has been gorging on food to gain weight,” says the actor’s spokesperson.
Jacqueline has also undergone a workshop to perfect her spoken Hindi for the film. “Apart from gaining weight, she has been working hard on perfecting her Hindi dialect to aptly deliver the lines in the film. The workshops took place for two months before she resumed shooting for the movie,” adds the spokesperson. In a previous chat with HT Café, Jacqueline had mentioned how Kick is one of the most important projects for her.
She said, “Yes, it is definitely the biggest film of mine. Sajid Nadiadwala, who is debuting as a director in the film, is taking great measures to make it really look good. I think it’s going to show things in a very different light.”
Jacqueline is currently in London to start filming for the film.
