Jacqueline Fernandez to return to her roots
Sri Lankan director approaches Jacqueline to star in a film based on real-life double murders in the '80s Colombo
She may have done several films in Bollywood, but Jacqueline Fernandez is looking to return to her roots. Los Angeles-based director of Sri Lankan origin, Chandram Rutnam has apparently approached Jacky to star in an English film, co-starring Alston Koch, who is a singer-telly actor from the South country.
The film apparently is based on a real-life incident that took place in Colombo in 1980.
A source says, “Jacky is in an exciting stage of her career. After Race 2, she has caught the eye of many filmmakers. She has now been approached to feature in an English film that is based on a true story. She has a huge fan base overseas and Koch has already been signed for the project. The makers are keen to have her on board.”
A source close to the actress however says that Jacqueline is taking her time to make a decision. “The subject of the film is quite controversial and Jacky is thinking things through. She is excited to get an offer from a Sri Lankan filmmaker.”
Murder he wrote!
The plot deals with the story of Father Matthew Pieris, a priest who planned the chilling murders of his wife and the husband of his mistress. The incident is also famously known as the Vicarage Murders.
