'Jadoo Ki Jappi' phrase belongs to Sanjay Dutt: Jacqueline
Jacqueline Fernandez, who has done an item number 'Jadoo Ki Jappi' in Prabhu Deva's 'Ramaiya Vastavaiya', is hoping to hit the bullseye with the song, which is inspired from the line popularised by Sanjay Dutt in the 'Munnabhai' series
"I don't think that anyone can take away the phrase from him.
He is the original and first person to have created this line. We are hoping our song will become as popular as his (Sanjay Dutt) line," Jacqueline told reporters here at the song launch. "I was apprehensive to do the song as I had not done an earthy song before.
It was out of my comfort zone. But when I heard the song I liked it. Also it was an opportunity to dance with Prabhudeva which I couldn't let go," she said. The Sri Lankan beauty rehearsed the song for a week before matching up to Prabhudeva's energy.
She had a tough time with the ace choreographer-director, who is also a part of the song. "A day before we shot for the song, I showed it to him... He was not happy and felt it was robotic. He told me to add heart and soul to the song, so I kept rehearsing," she said.
This is her second item song, and Jacqueline says she is not the item queen yet, as she is yet to do many more songs to get this tag. Its Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's 'Kajra Re' that is Jacqueline's favourite item song.
