Jacqueline Fernandez is on a roll. The actress recently wrapped up a schedule of Bhoot Police, and reportedly, she will soon start shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Cirkus. She also has films like Attack and Kick 2 in her kitty, and now, Jacqueline has been roped in to star in Bachchan Pandey.

Jacqueline took to Instagram to inform her fans about it. She posted, “Super excited to join #SajidNadiadwala’s #BachchanPandey gang 💥 My ‘Happy Place’ with Nadiad @akshaykumar & the whole crew at @nadiadwalagrandson ♥️ @kritisanon @farhadsamji @arshad_warsi @wardakhannadiadwala.”

This will be Jacqueline’s fourth film with Akshay Kumar. She has earlier worked with the actor in films like Housefull 2, Housefull 3 and Brothers. And with Sajid Nadiadwala, this will be her fifth film.

Jacqueline has been away from the big screen from more than two years. Her last theatrical release was Race 3. However, we got to see her on Netflix in two movies Drive (2019) and Mrs. Serial Killer (2020).

Directed by Farhad Samji and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Bachchan Pandey was announced last year with Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles. A few days ago, it was revealed that Arshad Warsi is also a part of the film, and there were reports that an A-list actress will join the cast.
