What is this one hears about Saif Ali Khan recommending Jacqueline Fernandes to his producers? According to the industry grapevine, the newly remarried Nawab has told producers that he’s happy to work with Jacqueline, so they’re free to consider her for projects he’s discussing with them. Jacqueline, who starred in the duds Aladin and Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai before she landed a bonafide blockbuster in boyfriend Sajid Khan’s Housefull 2, has just completed Race 2 with Saif, and the actor is reportedly impressed with her “work ethic”. (His words, apparently, not mine!)
Or perhaps it’s just Saif’s way of returning a favour to Sajid Khan, who has signed him to star in Judwaa 2 for producer Sajid Nadiadwala. But Saif Ali Khan playing a double role in a comedy that’s a sequel to a Salman Khan hit? I’d be worried.
