Jacqueline Fernandez is not new to item songs as she has done Dhanno in Housefull, and some sizzling tracks in Race 2. However, this time the Sri Lankan beauty has gone desi with a vengence for a song in Ramaiya Vastavaiyya starring Shruti Haasan and debutant Girish Taurani.
She has been styled by Manish Malhotra for the song, Jaadu Ki Jhappi De De Tu Abhi, which was shot in Chandigarh recently. Director Prabhu Dheva has also grooved alongside Jackie.
“You are not a complete Bollywood heroine till you dance in the fields of Punjab. Thanks to this song, I feel that I completely belong here,” laughs Jacqueline. “I enjoy dancing, but it’s the first time that I have done such a number with desi steps. And it was super-exciting.”
Adds the actress, “I can’t thank Rameshji (Taurani) and Prabhu Dheva enough, for not many filmmakers would have thought that I would look convincing as a village belle.”
As for matching steps with Prabhu Dheva — not an easy feat for any actress — was not daunting for her, Jacqueline shrugs, “I was very anxious about getting it right, but he put me completely at ease. I was in awe of dancing with him, but he is so non-starry that all my nervousness was put to rest.” The song was shot over three days.

How did Bollywood happen?
It just did. After being crowned Miss Sri Lanka, I was doing a few fashion shows in India. That’s when I was offered Aladin and Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai.
And when the two films fell flat…
People are very hard on you if your film doesn’t do well. It was a very frustrating time for me, until Sajid Khan called and asked me to dance to the Apni Toh Jaise Taise number in Housefull.
I knew that Sajid’s film was a big ticket and the Laawaris song was equally big. But still, I didn’t get any good offers. In fact, I decided to pack my bags and go back to Sri Lanka. And then suddenly, Mukesh Bhatt called up.
You must have been happy with the Murder 2 offer. No. In fact, many people advised me not to accept it. They said I’ll get stuck with the hot and sexy image and inevitably there would be comparisons drawn between Mallika Sherawat (who played the female lead in Murder) and me.
One fine morning, I got up and decided to go with my own gut and instinct. I knew that I was heading for something that would either make or break me. I said, chalo let me take the risk.
People feel you looked sexier than Mallika
(Laughs) That’s an inevitable but unfair comparison. I really love Mallika for the way she leads her life on her own terms and is not apologetic about it.

Mahesh Bhatt discusses the Bhatt brand of erotica
Meena Iyer (BOMBAY TIMES; June 12, 2011) There’s tremendous buzz around Vishesh Films’ Murder 2 starring Emraan Hashmi and Jacqueline Fernandez for obvious reasons. The trade and the public who have now come to expect a staple erotic quotient from the Bhatt brothers (Mukesh and Mahesh) — Jism and Murder being the reference points — know that Murder 2 won’t just push the envelope but tear it.
Mahesh Bhatt, the brain behind these films, admits that Jacqueline is bolder than Jism’s Bipasha Basu and Murder’s Mallika Sherawat (Murder). Says he, “We at Vishesh Films decided to make films with a high quotient of erotica to cater to the new consumer who is living a life radically different from the life I lived in my youth. “Bollywood cinema was slow to realise this but society had moved on. That is why when we made Jism and Murder and Raaz, the audience lapped it up. They had no problems with it. But the purists were outraged.
“For the first time in Indian cinema, Bipasha uttered the words, “the body doesn’t know love, it only knows lust.” Then we had Mallika in Murder who sleeps with another man and returns to her marriage only because her affair isn’t working out. She has an intensely fulfilling sexual extra-marital relationship and feels no guilt. This is the post modern Indian woman.
“The India in which we were groomed, was shackled to certain beliefs. In the cinema made by our More >

Though Emraan Hashmi debuted with Footpath, it was Murder which catapulted him to stardom. Emraan is now hoping that the sequel of Murder too proves to be equally lucky for him. While the original film starred Mallika Sherawat and was directed by Anurag Basu, Murder 2 has the sexy Jacqueline Fernandez paired opposite Emraan while Mohit Suri takes over the mantle of directing the film.
From the looks of it, Emraan and Jacqueline share some really steamy scenes in the film. Apparently, Jacqueline plays the centrespread model of a Playboy-ish men’s magazine. The role requires her to shed all inhibitions and most of her clothes which the Sri Lankan beauty surely doesn’t mind doing.
Emraan too has got completely in shape for this role and his chiselled torso is there for one and all to see. After recent hits like Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai and Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, Emraan would be hoping that Murder 2 also clicks in a big way at the Box Office.
