Jacqueline Fernandez has joined the cast of Bachchan Pandey, starring Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon. Recently, actor Arshad Warsi was also roped in for the action-comedy.

”I was very new to the industry when I did the Dhanno song in Housefull for Nadiad and our bond and friendship goes way back,” Jacqueline shares. “I am elated to be back working with him and Bachchan Pandey will mark our eighth film together after Judwaa and the Housefull series. I can't wait to reunite with Akshay once again. It's a crazy mad ride always with him and I am sure we will have a blast together.”
Talking about the shooting schedule, she adds, “I’m looking forward to beginning the shoot in January with them. I can't spill the beans on my character yet, but I can tell you it's a totally different avatar.”
