Jacqueline opts out of role opposite Arjun Rampal in Jai Ramji

The smouldering red-hot promos of Jacqueline Fernandez heating up the seaside splendour of Goa in Murder 2 raises fond memories of Mallika Sherawat's sizzling re-launch in Murder five years ago.

And the sizzle-quotient has not escaped the Bhatts' notice. Having earlier successfully re-launched Bipasha Basu and Mallika Sherawat in all their oomphy-glory in Jism and Murder, respectively, it's time for the Bhatts to give Jacqueline's career that box office boost that would hopefully make her the new pinup sensation.

And the Sri Lankan beauty who had earlier done two films (Aladin, Jaane Kahan Se Aaye Hai) that almost branded her a fairytale actress, is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that Murder 2 does her what Murder did for Mallika.

Jacqueline has recently said no to a film opposite Arjun Rampal begging off with the age-old excuses of no dates. But Tigmanshu Dhulia's Jai Ramji was not even into the date-zone as when Jacqueline begged off.

Says Dhulia, "There was no talk of dates. I met Jacqueline and she loved the role of Arjun Rampal's classy girlfriend who is suddenly thrown into Lucknow's hotbed of crime and politics. It's a role similar to Pooja Batra's in Viaasat. I don't know what happened. I already have another option in place, so no problems."

A bit of probing reveals that Jacqueline has now decided to do films only with the biggest banners.

Says a source, "After Murder 2, she is going into Sajid Nadiadwala's Housefull 2 where her co-star is John. Jacqueline is looking at a new beginning for herself at this stage. A film directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia doesn't fit into her scheme of things right now."

The Bhatts have completely taken Jacqueline under their wings and are guiding her through her career moves.

Arjun Rampal who was to be Jacqueline's co-star in Jai Ramji had backed out of Housefull 2 making way for John Abraham. That's when Jacqueline stepped into Housefull 2 and out of Jai Ramji.
