Jacqueline Fernandez believes that one of the toughest genres in Bollywood is comedy. In fact, amidst fitness and martial arts trainers and life coachers, it seems that Jacqueline decided to learn comedy from a trainer for Housefull 3 – and it was none other than her co-star Akshay Kumar.
Jacqueline Fernandez plays the role of Akshay Kumar’s girlfriend and it seems having her coach for comedy by her side made all the difference. Talking about it, the former Sri Lankan beauty queen said, “I had the best trainer with me – Akshay Kumar. If I have managed to do any comedy at all in this movie, it is only because of him. He says things with such a straight face even while cracking a joke that it’s hilarious. In comedy, if you don’t have the right tuning with your co-actor, the humour can fall flat. I wish actors got more credit for humour. I’ve worked with Akshay in an intense movie (Brothers) and the kind of effort he takes to get into the role is a learning experience.”
Directed by Sajid – Farhad, Housefull 3 stars Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon and it is all set to release on June 3.
