'Race 2' has been most challenging: Jaqueline Fernandez

Mumbai, Dec 9 (IANS) Actress Jaqueline Fernandez considers "Race 2" as her most challenging film and says a lot of hard work has gone into it.

"It is the most negative character I have played. It is very challenging to do something like that. I had to tackle each scene with an underlying thought that the character is concealing a deep dark secret. Every character is dark and that is the beauty of the film," she said in an interview.

"It is a nice change. It's something new to try. It was very challenging. To be this evil person and be negative, you have to work on yourself," she added.

Comparing "Race 2" to her previous hit "Housefull 2", Jaqueline said: "'Housefull 2' was like a walk in the park. It was fun, everyone was having a good time. Everything was spontaneous. 'Race 2' is more calculative, you have to rehearse. You need to understand that certain messages need to be sent to the audience. So 'Race 2' was most challenging."

With so many films crossing the Rs.100-crore-mark, Jaqueline feels the term is overrated now.

"I feel that a lot of films have crossed Rs.100 crore now, I think it has become overrated. Now we should talk about Rs.200 crore," she said.

Asked how does she go about choosing scripts, Jaqueline said: "I don't have any strategy, I just took whatever came my way. It just happened that these were fantastic offers which just came my way. Things have really started shaping up for me," she said.

Directed by Abbas-Mustan, "Race 2" also features Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ameesha Patel in prominent roles.
