Jacqueline mentioned how director Mohit Suri ensured that the leading pair had plenty of comfort level between them to make the chemistry look believable. After all, if a film of this nature has no real spark between the couple, it will surely go off like a damp squib. Remember the host of films that tried to imitate ‘Jism’? None of them worked because they couldn’t match the chemistry of Bipasha Basu and John Abraham.
The romantic scenes were difficult to shoot, admits Jacqueline Fernandez. She says, “So yes; there were intensive conversations around how to shoot certain intimate scenes between Emraan and me. But then it wasn’t like ‘let’s make it graphic’ or ‘make it way too revealing’. It was more about Mohit looking at capturing the right moment on screen and ensure that the intimacy came alive. Now if that required both of us to allow our inhibitions to fly away then that’s fine. We did everything that was required to make our intimacy look convincing enough on the screen.”
However, Jacqueline denies that ‘Murder 2’ was made with the intention of pulling in audiences by showing them titillating content. According to her, that was never the primary intention! She feels that the bold scenes add layer to the script and makes the characters look more believable. We leave you to decide whether you find her words believable or not!
