Is Jacqueline Fernandez shedding more clothes than ever before in Murder 2? The buzz is that the Bhatts are taking the erotic content in Murder 2 further than they did with Bipasha Basu in Jism and Mallika Sherawat in Murder.
Jacqueline plays a centrespread model in Murder 2. And she promises to sizzle up the screen like never before in this Murder sequel.
Apparently, Jacqueline plays the centrespread model of a Playboy-ish men's magazine. The role requires her to shed all inhibitions and most of her clothes, which the Sri Lankan beauty identified with fun films such as Aladin and Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai, is more than willing to do.
Jacqueline has shown a keen interest in discarding her goody-goody image and is game to go all-out for the role. Director Mohit Suri has shot some never-before-seen sequences with Jacqueline where she has shown much more than just her histrionics.
Director Mohit Suri, currently helming the new-age erotica in Goa, admits to the film's high erotic content. "Murder was five years ago. Back then adultery and a wife stealing away to meet her lover was a big thing. People were turned on by Emraan's 17-18 smooches and Mallika Sherawat's bare back. Times have changed. It takes a lot to shock and titillate the audience. And we're doing just that."
Mohit however, refuses to divulge if Jacqueline has gone completely nude. "All I'll say is she's gone as far as the role demands. Jacqueline told me, 'My earlier films were for small boys. I want Murder 2 to be for the big boys.' She plays a model for an adult magazine, an Indian equivalent of Playboy. So you can imagine what that entails! Jacqueline has completely surrendered to the role."
Murder 2 is set in the world of pimps, hookers and prostitutes. An area familiar to Mohit Suri who made Kalyug about an innocent girl being whisked away to a brothel. "It's a thriller exploring the world of prostitutes, transvestites, pimps and gigolos. It is not a film for the young. Jacqueline will be going far ahead of anything seen so far in terms of erotic content," promises Mohit.
Mallika Sherawat was never considered seriously for Murder 2. Explains Mohit, "Bringing her and Emraan together again after Murder would've been too much of a repetition. There is a special challenge to making Jacqueline go into the erotic space. Though Murder 2 is a sequel to Murder, it has no connection with the earlier film. I've taken up the challenge of carrying a franchise from Bhatt saab's Vishesh Films forward. I made Raaz 2, remember?"
Jacquelin has been working on upping the erotica level of Bipasha in Jism and Mallika in Murder. We've got to wait and watch if she truly sizzles or fizzles.
