Sri Lankan actress Jacqueline Fernandez who has big banner films in her kitty, turned down a role as she did not want to play second fiddle to Parineeti Chopra
When Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha were part of Namastey England, model Aisha Buzz had been signed as the second female lead. Apparently, Jacqueline Fernandez was recently approached for Buzz’s role, but she turned down the offer, since she didn’t want to play second fiddle to Parineeti Chopra.
A source says, “Jacqueline is doing some big films with top stars, including A Gentleman with Sidharth Malhotra, Judwaa 2 with Varun Dhawan, Drive with Sushant Singh Rajput and director Remo D’Souza’s untitled next with Salman Khan. She didn’t want to play a role subordinate to Parineeti. Jackie’s market price is also more than Pari’s. Why would she do Namastey Canada?” Filmmaker Vipul Shah
says he hasn’t approached Fernandez yet. “I don’t know where you have heard this from. I have not met anybody for the role,”
