The Karan Johar production has her paired opposite Sushant Singh Rajput for the first time and the actress, we hear has already started prepping for the film.
In order to play her character with conviction, Jacqueline Fernandez is now getting into the technicalities of the cars. However, it isn’t too difficult for the actress since she has been a fan of cars since early days. In fact, it is being said that Jacqueline is a Formula One junkie and as a teenager, she used to follow one of the largest sporting events of Middle East – the Bahrain Grand Prix.
Probably, this is the reason why the actress liked the character when she was approached with the script. Furthermore, sources close to her claim that she has grown interests in the peculiarity of engines.
As of now her preps include not just reading articles and watching videos online but she herself tries looking for the problem if anything goes wrong with her car.
