Jacqueline Fernandez on Monday began filming her upcoming action-comedy “Bachchan Pandey”, featuring Akshay Kumar.
The actor started her shoot for the Sajid Nadiadwala-backed project in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.
Fernandez has previously worked with the “Kesari” star in films like the 2015 drama “Brothers”, and the second and third instalment of the comedy franchise, “Housefull”. The ‘Kick’ star hopped on to Instagram and expressed her excitement as she has started shooting with Kumar.
In the picture, Fernandez can be seen hugging the ‘Boss’ actor. She has sported a cold shoulder white top and donned a high ponytail, while her co-star looks dashing in a chequered shirt.
Taking to the caption, the ‘Judwaa 2’ star wrote, “The most excited today as I start shooting with @akshaykumar for #SajidNadiadwala’s #BachchanPandey directed by @farhad_samji.”
“Are you ready to meet this gang in cinemas next year?” she asked her fans.
