By Sayantan Dalal (DNA; April 23, 2012)
For actor Jacqueline Fernandez, actor Rishi Kapoor has always been a star she looked up to. Her admiration for Kapoor started since her childhood days and lately, she even got to share screen space with the actor in a recent movie. It left such a huge impression on her that Jacqueline has now got a customised pendant with the name ‘Bobby’ engraved on it.
This ‘Bobby’ is not a new love interest of the actor, but Kapoor’s famous film Bobby (1973). A source tells us, “Jacqueline has got a customised silver pendant with ‘Bobby’ engraved on it. She is extremely fascinated with Kapoor and has a lot of respect for him. Her all time favourite movie is also his blockbuster Bobby, directed by Raj Kapoor.”
“It was an impulsive decision, which she took after sharing screen space with him in Housefull 2. It was a dream come true for her,” the source further adds. On being asked about the pendant, Jacqueline says, “I have been a great admirer of Rishiji since childhood. The name ‘Bobby’ revived some old memories, so I decided to make a silver pendant with the word engraved on it.”
And at a recent event she even got the chance to show off her pendant to Kapoor. She adds, “It was not only the pendant but Rishiji’s reaction that got me really excited. I was glad he liked and appreciated it.” The source also mentions, “Kapoor was hugely impressed with the pendant and thanked her for the sweet gesture.”
