From the past few weeks, there have been several reports about the female leads in John Abraham starrer Attack. The actor announced the film a few months ago, and it was said that Jacqueline Fernandez and Rakul Preet Singh will be seen as the female leads in the movie.
Now, Jacqueline recently at an event confirmed that she is a part of the film and also spoke about sharing the screen space with John and Rakul. Jacqueline said, “It’s a fantastic film and it’s a fantastic script. I am coming together again with John and we have Rakul also in this film with us. So, it will be great. It’s such a fantastic role, and the one that Rakul is doing is also brilliant. Actually, when I was hearing the story, I was thinking ‘wow Rakul’s role is really nice’. But she will do full justice to it and I am very happy that she is a part of the project.”
When asked her when the shooting of the film kickstarts, Jacqueline said, “We start shooting in January.”
Jacqueline was last seen on the big screen in Saaho in which she had a special dance number. Her last big-screen outing in a full-fledged role was 2018 release Race 3 which unfortunately failed to make a mark at the box office. The actress was recently seen in Drive which was released on Netflix and received negative reviews.
Attack is slated to release on 14th August 2020. For the past two years, John has been releasing his movies during the Independence Day weekend. Last year was Satyameva Jayate and this year was Batla House. Both the films clashed with other biggies at the box office but were successful. Next year, Attack will clash with Bhuj: The Pride Of India which stars Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, and Rana Daggubati.
