It's a busy time for Bollywood ladies, as they work on multiple movies opposite leading stars.

Like Kiara Advani and Rakul Singh, Jacqueline Fernandez has her plate full of exciting projects too.

Joginder Tuteja looks at the leading men Jackie is starring with.

 

Saif Ali Khan, Bhoot Police

Jacqueline will be seen with Saif Ali Khan in the comedy, Bhoot Police.

This is not the first time they have been paired up; they were seen as a couple in Abbas-Mustan's Race 2.

Ramesh Taurani produced both Race 2 and Bhoot Police.

 

John Abraham, Attack

Jacqueline's character was working for John Abraham in Race 2 and now she stars in his home production Attack, as his leading lady.

She has worked with John earlier in Dishoom.

 

Ranveer Singh, Cirkus

Jacqueline will be seen with Ranveer Singh for the first time in Rohit Shetty's Cirkus.

In the film, Ranveer and Varun Sharma will be seen in double roles.

This is the first time that Jacqueline will be seen in Rohit Shetty's world of comedy. Of course, Jackie has tried comedy before in films like Housefull 2 and Judwaa 2.

 

Akshay Kumar, Ram Setu

Jacqueline has done quite a few films with Akshay Kumar, including in Brothers, where she played his wife.

She will be seen with him in Ram Setu, though one waits to see how much romance there is in a film about a man's expedition to explore history.

The film co-stars Nushrratt Bharuccha.

Incidentally, Ram Setu takes a trip to Sri Lanka, where Jacqueline hails from.

 

Arshad Warsi, Bachchan Pandey

Kriti Sanon is paired opposite Akshay Kumar in Bachchan Pandey and one wonders if Jacqueline is paired opposite the leading man too, or if she's the love interest of Arshad Warsi.

This film has been produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, who has cast her repeatedly in his films.

 

Salman Khan, Kick 2

Yet another Sajid Nadiadwala biggie, Kick 2 will also be directed by the enterprising producer, just like the first part.

Salman Khan leads the show in the sequel as well.

A teaser had been released a whole ago though the film has yet to go on the floors.

Interestingly, Jacqueline recently did an item number, Dil De Diya, in Salman Khan's Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai.

 

Sudeep, Vikrant Rona

Jacqueline will be seen in her first film down South, Vikrant Rona.

In Kannada, this '3D fantasy, action-adventure thriller film', has her paired opposite Sudeep who has done a number of Hindi films, the last big one being Dabangg 3.
