Jacqueline Fernandez tries a different style of ballet

Jacqueline Fernandez in ROY (1)Jacqueline Fernandez has become a favourite with choreographers and directors to dance in her films. With her next film, ROY, the actress has tried a completely different style of contemporary dance, a ballet on sand for the song ‘Boond Boond’. Director Vikramjit Singh wanted a sequence in the song that is artistic, sensual and passionate. When he briefed choreographer Ahmed Khan, Ahmed instantly knew what he wanted to capture.

Jacqueline will be the first Hindi actress to try this form of dancing in romantic thriller ROY. Speaking about it, Jacqueline says, “Ahmed gave me a couple of videos to watch to understand the body language and refer to before the shoot. He is one of the finest choreographers, who loves experimenting and is passionate about his work.”

Jacqueline, who loves dancing, suggested some moves to Ahmed who loved them and incorporated them on shoot. Jacqueline adds, “Ahmed gave a completely different, fresh touch to the kind of ballet we have always seen on screen. I too had ideas and together we put a piece together. The final scene that you see on screen is sensuous and passionate.”

Filmonix to release ROY in UK cinemas on 13th February

Life imitates art and the lines between fiction and reality are blurred in 2015’s most stylish and engaging romantic thriller, ROY, releasing on 13th February, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar and Freeway Pictures and distributed in the UK by Filmonix.

Bhushan Kumar’s upcoming romantic thriller, ROY, has created quite a stir; a film that has been much-anticipated by the industry as well as the fans. The trailer crossed three million views on YouTube in just three days of its release followed by the songs, which have gained popularity across all media platforms.  

Ayesha - ROY (1)After giving audiences several musical hits such as Aashiqui 2 and Yaariyan, ROY is said to be another feather in this renowned company’s hat. Debutant director Vikramjit Singh presents a handsome and accomplished lead cast comprising Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez in a slick, romantic thriller, set against a sweeping backdrop of international locales. Ankit Tiwari, Meet Bros Anjjan and Amaal Malik have created a beautifully haunting soundtrack to complement the air of onscreen mystery and suspense. Sure to be lauded by critics and a new generation of Indian cinema audiences, ROY marks a dynamic new turn in the Indian thriller genre.

While Ranbir Kapoor plays the title role, Arjun Rampal plays the role of a director and will be seen in a completely different look in ROY. The two are paired with Jacqueline Fernandez for the first time in a film. Jacqueline, who plays a double role, is seen romancing the two most dashing leading men of Bollywood in ROY. The actress will be seen in two different looks: elegantly glamorous and vivaciously hip, respectively.

Arjun and Ranbir in RoyT-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar says, “We received a fabulous response to the theatrical trailer and the first song Sooraj Dooba Hai, which is now a party anthem for the season, followed by Tu Hai Ki Nahi and Chhitiyan Kallaiyan. The rest of the songs from the album have an individuality of their own and help the story go forward. The trailer helped us build enough curiosity on the characters each actor plays. Where Arjun is seen in a role and look he has never tried before, Jacqueline plays a double role for the first time and both are poles apart; while Ranbir plays a dynamic title role and he is supportive to the film and Vicky.”
