Now, Jacqueline says that her intentions weren’t wrong. In a conversation with Bollywoodlife, she said, “I know what my intention was and it wasn’t wrong. I have a nephew. He does not like to be hugged at times, but I still hug him as I am his aunt. My intentions weren’t wrong and it’s my right to believe that.”

She also said that the celebs need to understand about the people’s concerns. She further said, “I feel it is important that people voice opinions. It is fantastic. Just because we are celebs, does not mean that people would stay quiet. It is not like you can do something and get away with it. It is great that people have opined and I respect that. I understand where people’s concerns are coming from.”

In Race 3, Jacqueline and Salman are reuniting after 2014 film Kick. The film, directed by Remo D’Souza, is set to hit the screens on June 15, 2018.
