Shraddha, Jackie fight over Sushant

They are in a race to bag their next film opposite the actor.

No, this isn’t a catfight, but a film fight. Actresses Shraddha Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez are both vying for a role in Nitesh Tiwari’s next. The film is produced by Fox Star Studios and Sajid Nadiadwala, and will star the charming Sushant Singh Rajput. Shraddha and Jacqueline are both eager to star opposite Sushant in the film, which is set to go on the floors by the end of this year. Interestingly, Sushant and Jacqueline are already sharing screen space in Tarun Mansukhani’s film Drive, which is bankrolled by Karan Johar and will release in September this year.

“So, the dilemma for the makers is if the pair is fresh, it will be an interesting option for the viewers. If Drive does well, it will be common sense to repeat the pair. Jacqueline who is close to Sajid Nadiadwala and also stars in Kick 2 with Salman Khan is also pushing her luck with Sajid. Shraddha too is keen to be a part of the film. So, it is more of a decision to be made by the filmmakers as to who suits the role better,” says a trade source.
