Salman Khan says, 'Sushant Singh Rajput who?'
While Salman Khan denies casting Sushant Singh Rajput for his next film, Jacqueline Fernandez says she's working in Salman's production with Sushant
Nearly four months ago, there were reports of Jacqueline Fernandez and Sushant Singh Rajput pairing up for an action film, co-produced by Salman Khan and Karan Johar. But, when Salman was asked about casting the young actor in the project last June, he simply said, "Sushant who?"
However, now, Jacqueline has confirmed that she is indeed teaming up with Sushant for the film under Sallu's banner. "It is an interesting script and I will start working on it soon. There will be a lot of action scenes and I am looking forward to it," she gushes. This mega collaboration, touted to be the first instalment of an action series, will be helmed by Tarun Mansukhani of 'Dostana' fame.
The actress admits that her career took off post Salman-starrer Kick (2014), which was directed and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The filmmaker is now planning a sequel to his 1997 comedy caper, 'Judwaa' and Jackie has been offered the film. "But nothing is confirmed yet," she clarifies.

Jacqueline is currently juggling promotions of upcoming film, 'A Flying Jatt', and dance reality show, 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' on which she's a judge. "I have had two back to back releases — 'Housefull 3' and 'Dishoom', and now gearing up for my third film this year. It has been tiring. I am wearing glasses today, not to look stylish, but because I have contracted an eye infection," she adds.
