Rohit Shetty has immersed himself into his next magnum opus Sooryavnshi starring Akshay Kumar as a top cop. Sources in the know suggest that Jacqueline Fernandez is in the running to play the female lead in the film opposite Akshay.
“Jacqueline is being considered to play the heroine in the film. Her pairing with Akshay has always been a hit and they look good together on screen. The movie is an out and out Akshay Kumar film and the female lead’s role will be limited. However they needed a popular actress opposite Akshay and Jacqueline fits the bill,” a source said.
Speculations were earlier rife that Jacqueline was earlier considered for Ram Lakhan remake that Rohit was planning to make.
Meanwhile, Sooryavanshi is all set to release in Eid next year. Buzz was Akshay called Salman Khan before finalising Eid as the release date. However, Akshay denied these reports.
