Interview: Jacqueline Fernandez talks about ‘Brothers’

Jacqueline Fernandez in London -BollyNewsUK (3)Bollywood beauty Jacqueline Fernandez stars in the much-awaited sports drama, Brothers, an official remake of Hollywood film Warrior.

Released by Fox Star Studios worldwide, the high-octane family drama also stars international icon Akshay Kumar along with Sidharth Malhotra (Ek Villain), and Jackie Shroff (Dhoom 3) in pivotal roles.

Directed by trailblazer Karan Malhotra (Agneepath), known for extracting inspiring performances from his actors and sending his audiences on an emotional, cathartic journey, Brothers has been produced by renowned filmmaker Karan Johar, under his Dharma Productions banner, along with Lionsgate Films and Endemol India

Brothers is the story of a broken family, set in the world of mixed martial arts and underground street fighting. Akshay Kumar plays the role of Sidharth Malhotra’s elder brother; both siblings are martial arts fighters locked in a fierce rivalry for victory in the ring.

Speaking to Bollywood reporter Sunny Malik, Fernandez talked about the film, her movie choices and playing a mother on-screen for the first time.

Your career changed drastically after starring in Kick last year. How has it been?
It has been great. Last time we spoke, I had just finished Kick and was starting Bangistan. I also finished Roy with Ranbir Kapoor and Brothers. I have also started Rohit Dhawan’s movie with John Abraham and Varun Dhawan. I will also be filming Remo’s next directorial also starring Tiger Shroff. I will now be starting Housefull 3 shortly.

Jacqueline Fernandez in LondonSo you will be filming in London for Housefull 3 again…
Yes, it’s very exciting and I can’t wait.

Everyone wants to work with Dharma Productions. How did you feel when you were offered Brothers?
I was ecstatic. I have always wanted to work with Dharma Productions. This film and my role is a bit unconventional for me because I have been previously only seen on-screen in glamorous roles. This was different and I was honestly surprised that I was even offered such a film. I am so glad that I did do the film because I was in very good hands.

Were you slightly conscious that you will not be seen in make-up on-screen?
Yes, I was but it was also a relief. In films like Dishoom which I am working with John and Varun, I know that I have to look my best. In Brothers it wasn’t about that at all.  It was purely about my performance. It was a relief that I didn’t have to worry about how I was looking, my make-up, clothes or my styling. It was a completely new experience for me.

Do you think not having to worry about these factors brought out a better performance?
I don’t think that styling, clothes and make-up should come in the way of your performance. You should be able to look your best and yet give your best performance. Sadly, what happens is that you get so involved in these things for some roles that they become your priority more than your performance. This time it was different and a little bit weird for me. I wanted to look at myself first before some takes and I was told to not worry and just give the shot (laughs). It was amazing because I felt myself that I was giving a real performance and nothing else mattered.

Who offered you the film? Karan Johar or Karan Malhotra?
It was Karan Johar who came to me with Brothers.

Were you worried that playing an on-screen mother would not go well with your image?
I was very aware of it. I even contemplated not doing the film. I didn’t know whether I wanted to play a Mom at this stage in my career. Even when I started the movie, I was still a little bit apprehensive and not sure. But then it was all about how convincing the audience that I can also be a mother on-screen. I don’t know how that can go against me. When I go and start my movie with Tiger Shroff next, I should still be as convincing in whatever I portray in that film.

Brothers is the first film to release by 20th Century Fox through the Fox Star India and Dharma Productions partnership. Do you feel this film can reach a wide international audience because it’s a Hollywood remake?
I hope so. The story of the film can connect with people from any nationality, region or religion. Everyone can relate to the storyline. I do hope that people come and see it because I don’t think what they will see in Brothers is something that they would expect from a Hindi audience per say.

Brothers is now playing in cinemas nationwide.

Sajid Nadiadwala’s association with Tiger Shroff began in the Football field

Tiger Shroff_Heropanti (2)Sajid Nadiadwala and his  production team have been busy training the future star, Tiger Shroff, for Heropanti.

Sajid first met Tiger 15 years ago, at the football field and Jackie insisted that Sajid train his son in football.

Tiger was introduced to Sajid as a 5-year-old boy by Jackie Shroff, as he accompanied his father to an enjoyable football match. The producer regularly played football during those days and was a tough goal-keeper. After the match,  Jackie walked up to Sajid and expressed his desire for the ace producer to train his son in the game.

Who knew then that 15 years later, Sajid’s entire unit would be working towards  Tiger’s larger-than-life Bollywood debut with ‘Heropanti’.

Talking about the irony, a nostalgic Sajid stated, “I am very happy with how the movie is shaping up and the fact that I am actually fulfilling the responsibility given to me 15 years ago by Jackie to train his son. It certainly is a different space, but training it is!

Under the banner of Nadiadwala Grandsons Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. (NGEPL), Heropanti is directed by Sabbir Khan.

Starring Tiger Shroff and Kirti Sanon in lead roles, the film is slated to release on the 16th of May, 2014.

Tiger Shroff – The most promising, young face of 2014

Tiger Shroff_Heropanti (1)This New Year will see Tiger Shroff making his much awaited Bollywood debut in Heropanti.

Tiger is certainly one of the most promising newcomers of 2014. The debutante has been working hard for his acting debut, putting in his best to deliver a remarkable performance. Having honed his skills in martial arts and dance from a really young age, the young actor will be seen giving life to an off the edge character and some adrenaline-filled action scenes in the movie.

Director Sabbir Khan made sure that the young actor underwent rigorous workshops and extensive training before the film went on floors, and that Tiger started shooting only when he was absolutely ready to.

Looking forward to the release of Heropanti, Tiger Shroff commented, “It’s been a really long journey, firstly of understanding the movies and the craft and then immersing myself totally into the character and becoming it. Following that began the actual shooting … So yes I am really eager to see how the entire team’s hard work comes across, especially since it was a cast and crew that was entirely new.”

Tiger Shroff_Heropanti (2)Director Sabbir Khan said, “It’s been an exciting journey. Apart from Tiger and Kriti being newcomers, the rest of the cast and crew are relatively freshers. In fact, the average age of the unit was about 23/24yrs. The shoot shifted from Punjab to Mumbai and from Delhi to Kashmir. We’ve shot for endless hours but the energy and spunk of the unit was infectious and I think we’ve given it our all.” 

Producer Sajid Nadiadwala said, “It’s the first time that my banner is launching newcomers, but I am happy it’s come at the right time and with the right script. Tiger is extremely talented and focused, an amazing combination for a young newcomer. We firmly believe in this star of tomorrow.”

Directed by Sabbir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the film also marks the debut of Kriti Sanon with Tiger Shroff. Heropanti is slated to release on May 16, 2014.
