Jugalbandi Star Cast

We still remember the time Jacqueline Fernandez confessed that Salman Khan had promised her another film. Well, Khan is a man of his word and has offered her the leading role in Jugalbandi, the third production under his banner, Salman Khan Films (SKF) opposite Saif Ali Khan. Initially, Parineeti Chopra’s name was supposed to be the female lead.

A source confirms the development. “Salman felt Jacqueline fit the bill perfectly and asked her to come on board.” This happened right after Baba Siddique’s iftaar party when onlookers saw the actress sharing a dinner table with the ‘Khan’daan.

Jacqueline, who is busy promoting Brothers, will soon start filming Dishoom opposite Varun Dhawan and John Abraham and Flying Jat opposite Tiger Shroff, almost simultaneously. She also has Housefull 3 on her plate. With such a choc-a-bloc schedule, she will need to find time for Jugalbandi, expected on floors end-2015.

This would mean another blow for Parineeti Chopra, who has had no releases since Kill Dil last November. Not just that, she has not even signed anything yet.
