Jacqueline Fernandez to sign Sri Lankan film

, who is currently in Sri Lanka shooting for an ad campaign, is all set to sign her first Sri Lankan film.

A source close to the actress says, “She is in Colombo shooting an ad for an international food brand. While there, she got an offer for a Sinhalese film.”

Budgets for Sri Lankan movies are quite small compared to Bollywood, and an actor there is paid around US $1,000 for a full-fledged role. “Since Jackie gets paid very well in Bollywood, the director and producer offered to pay her US $10,000 for the part. It’s too small an amount for Jackie, as she can make the same amount through appearances in India. But since the role is a cameo and she wants to do something in Sri Lanka, Jackie has decided to do the role for free.”

Jacqueline’s business manager confirms the development, “Yes, Jackie has been approached to do a Sri Lankan film. It is the country’s most expensive film to date and they plan to spend four times more on the budget. Jackie wants to do the film only because she wants to give something back to Sri Lanka. It’s just one scene but they want to promote it as her first film there. After the Sri Lankan cricketers, Jackie is the most popular face there.” One of Sri Lanka’s biggest rock band, Bathiya & Santhush, has composed a song for the film and the makers want Jacqueline to be a part of the song too. “Though Jackie is very keen to do the film, currently we are working out the dates.” (Source: Times Of India)
