There have been aliens and there would be aliens. However, this is one alien who is bound to be loved, adored, admired and followed by one and all. We are talking about Jacqueline Fernandez a.k.a Jackie who plays an alien in search of love in her upcoming film Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai .
Though one looks forward to many more aliens like her landing on Earth, there is one trait about this alien which actually leads one to gasp in amazement. And that’s not just due to the beauty factor but the very fact that Jackie is shown to be carrying her own spacecraft wherever she travels. Puzzled? Well, here is what director Milap Zaveri has to say about Jackie and her spacecraft.
“The film is targeted at kids and young adults and hence it was imperative that we bring on enough funny moments that would keep them engaged. For that, we worked a lot on Jackie’s character and one such quality about this character is that she carries her own spacecraft wherever she travels. It does come in handy for her and while her friends on Earth, most notably Riteish Deshmukh, are quite baffled by how she makes it possible, it is this nice little trick that she has up her sleeves that makes it really work for her”, explains Milap.
Well, the secret behind this trick is that Jackie comes with the power of shrinking objects due to which she can drastically reduce the size of the spacecraft and make it so tiny that it could well fit into her pocket. Later, on need basis, she can get it back to its normal self and choose to fly away, as required.
This is not all as she has some other fun gadgets that she carries with her.
“However, the intent was not to make a film which focuses on gadgets and special effects. This is not a sci-fi film but a romantic comedy. This is why we focused on scenes turning out to be funny rather than gadgets being noticed in a big way. In fact even the special effects have been kept at the minimum and we haven’t allowed them to rule over emotions”, assures Milap.
Well, given the kind of fate that some overtly VFX laden films have suffered in the past, Milap’s cautious approach towards Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai is much understandable. Now as the film approaches its 9th April release, one looks forward to how it fares against Prince which is an action flick and is quite gadget-heavy as well as VFX laden right through its narrative.
