Actress Jacqueline Fernandez who was earlier offered "Krissh 3" and "Race 2" has now opted out of "Raaz 3" as well. The actress apparently has put her foot down on performing steamy scenes on screen. In "Krissh 3", the actress opted out because she was not comfortable locking lips with Hrithik Roshan, and she is said to have walked out of "Race 2" and "Raaz 3" for the same reasons.
Jacqueline Fernandez is out of Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt's hyped movie "Raaz 3", which is slated to go on floors in just 10 days' time. As per rumours she was uncomfortable about weary skimpy outfits in the film and did not want to be seen in revealing clothes. Ironically Jacqueline who made headlines with the Bhatts' runaway hit "Murder 2", she seemed to have no problems doing intimate scenes and wearing scant clothes.
A source says, "We as a production house make films purely on the basis of the director's vision. Now for some reason when an actor has issues about what to wear in the film, we leave it to the director and given a choice go by what the director has in mind."
Director Mahesh says to this sudden change in star-cast," We are yet to find the replacement, as "Raaz 3" goes on the floors on 27th January, 2012. Destiny too plays an important role. When we were making "Raaz", Lisa Ray had a similar issue and Bipasha replaced her and went on to became a huge star. Let's hope that's what happens with the actress who replaces Jacqueline."
For her part, Jacqueline said, "Yes I am no longer a part of "Raaz 3". However we have come to a mutual understanding and agreed to part ways." When asked about her displeasure over the costumes, she retorted "Yes, there were certain concerns and I wasn't comfortable and I told them. But they weren't in a situation to make changes which is why I had to opt out of the film."
Jacqueline Fernandez has lost out on 3 big films owing to her wish of staying away from skimpy clothes and love scenes. We wonder if beau Sajid Khan had anything to do with her decision.
