Jacqueline Fernandez is torn between Sajid Nadiadwala and Karim Morani as she gave same dates to both their projects
Jacqueline Fernandez has a choice to make and it's not an easy one. The actress, who starts shooting today for Sajid Nadiadwala's directorial debut 'Kick' opposite Salman Khan, will have to either continue with the film's shoot in February or be part of the 'Temptations Reloaded' tour, a commitment she had made last year.
In fact, the Australia leg of the tour went off smoothly last year after which the Malaysia leg got cancelled. But with that concert now slated to take place on February 15, Jacqueline is in a fix.
A source close to the actress says that director Sajid Nadiadwala is not willing to let his lead actress go as he has some important sequences lined up in mid-February. "With Jacky shooting for 'Kick' on the same day, we're not sure if she will be a part of the Malaysia tour. The organisers may have to replace her," says the source.
The source adds that Morani Brothers - the organisers of the tour – have requested Sajid to let her be a part of the tour, but the issue has not yet been resolved.
When contacted, Mohammad Morani admitted that there is a clash of dates. "I spoke to Sajid about the same - it turns out that he is shooting key scenes with a lot of dancers and I can understand his situation. That said, Jacqueline's company has given me her dates, so now this is a matter that needs to be sorted out between Sajid and the company," he said.
And will he be replacing Jacqueline if she is unable to join them for the tour? "It's too early to say anything right now. Besides, it's a ticketed show, so posters for the same have already been sent out. But yes, if she doesn't join us, we will have to replace her," he replied.
Both Sajid Nadiadwala and Jacqueline Fernandez remained unavailable for comment.
