Jacqueline Fernandez’s latest release Race 3 collected around 60 crores at the box office. Directed by Remo D’Souza, the film also stars Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem.

Jackie is currently busy with the rehearsals for Salman Khan’s Da-Bangg tour. She is also practising for her performance at a beauty pageant.

About being busy and occupied by work, the actor told Mid-day, “After my films began doing well, it has been a busy ride. At one time, I am doing several things. I like it this way. I may compromise on my sleep and take fewer holidays, but I have no complaints.”

Along with Jacqueline, Salman Khan’s international tour will also have Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha and Daisy Shah performing. Talking about the tour, she said, “I have been prepping with choreographer Sanjay Shetty. We have to make sure that everything is perfect. From costume fittings to matching steps with the backdrop dancers to the lip-sync. It is a big production and if you are going on a tour with Salman Khan, it is a huge responsibility. You have to give your best.”

The actor was all praises for her Kick co-star. She stated that Khan has been very supportive of her. “He’s been there ever since I landed in India to make a career in the industry. More than a co-actor, producer and mentor, he is a friend. He will always be a friend before anything else. He has been honest, caring and supportive. I don’t have family here and am not an industry offspring.

Salman gave me the confidence to get going in Bollywood,” said the actor.

Jacqueline will be reuniting with Salman Khan for Kick 2 and the shooting will commence next year.
