Mumbai: After raising temperature in ‘Murder 2’ teasers by her super sexy act, Jacqueline Fernandes has landed the makers of ‘Murder’ sequel in a fix as she flew to London to shoot for ‘Housefull 2’ instead of promoting her upcoming release.
Apparently, the Bhatt camp is furious at Jacqueline’s sudden move. Meanwhile, talking to a daily, defending the actress, a source said, “She had no choice. She was required for ‘Housefull 2’ in the last week of June and the first week of July and she just couldn`t say `No`. Needless to say that Jacqueline did not want to ruffle feathers with the Nadiadwala camp.”
When contacted, Mahesh Bhatt, the filmmaker said, “I was angry with Mukesh and the production team. We have a premium product in ‘Murder 2’, which is now a franchise. The marketing should reach its peak in the last few days, but now Jacqueline has gone away. The film has a very high erotic content and hence it is important that the female lead of your film is there on every platform with you towards the end, during the promotional phase right before the audience sees it.”
“Mukesh and the production team should have made arrangements to rope her into the publicity campaigns,” added the irked filmmaker.
However, Mukesh Bhatt has a different version as he explained, “I called Sajid Nadiadwala but got no response. If I was in Sajid`s place I would have let her go. They have capitalised on her casting in ‘Murder 2’ since she has only now become hot property. Hereafter, I will ensure that I have a legal bound contract with every actor that they have to be actively involved in the promotion of the film.”
Well, one thing is for sure that Jacqueline has become hot property in Bollywood!
