In what could possibly be a turning point in her career Jacqueline Fernandez will play the distinguished British actress Emily Blunt’s role of alcoholic in the Hindi remake of The Girl On A Train.
Emily Blunt was nominated for an Oscar for her unconditional surrender to her part. She was so convincing as the woman sozzled and losing touch with reality, that critics wondered whether she was actually drunk.
She was, actually, at times drunk. But Fernandez won’t have the luxury of surrendering to drinks.
Says a source, “Director Ribhu Dasgupta will take Jacqueline through the paces. He will visit rehabilitation centres with her, so that she can study firsthand how alcoholics on the wagon, behave.She will have stop saying every dialogue with a giggle. This will be her chance to get over her air headed image.”
