Many actresses of today’s times refrain from accepting older roles in the movies, depriving them of the opportunity to experiment with the roles and one such actress is Jacqueline Fernandez , who was earlier reluctant on doing the role of a mother for ‘Brothers’.
It took some convincing on Salman Khan’s part for her to say yes to the role. “Both the Karans (Johar and Malhotra) came to me with the story of ‘Brothers’. I met them at the office and he told me what this movie is about and that they wanted me to play Jenny Fernandes. I was like, ‘Why would they want me in the film?’ I was a little apprehensive about taking on an intense role like this. You are playing a mother and there are too many stereotypes attached to that. So I was a little skeptical.” She said
Later she added, “I discussed it with Salman and he convinced me to say yes. He told me it would benefit me and that here was a chance for me to prove myself through this performance and I should not worry about the glamour and styling taking it away. I thought if I could pull this off, it would be fantastic for me and my credentials as an actor. I pretty much owe it to Karan and Salman for believing that I could carry off the role.”
‘Brothers’ is releasing on 14th August and it’s the official remake of the Hollywood movie ‘Warrior’.
