Jacqueline Fernandez is already no stranger to Netflix. Alongside Sushant Singh Rajput, she starred in ‘Drive’ (2019), which was critically destroyed by critics alike. Fernandez now returns to the platform in a lead role in the original ‘Mrs Serial Killer.’
The Hindi crime thriller revolves around a doctor being jailed for a string of shocking murders which leads to his loyal wife setting out to commit a copycat crime to prove his innocence.
In an interview prior to the release of the movie, Fernandez discussed how she had to prep really hard for the role because there was not a single happy moment in it, reports Pinkvilla.
Fernandez said, “That was very difficult for me. To perform such an extreme emotion, you have to actually understand the character and have to go through them. Certain things for me was very difficult like aggression, pain, fear. I think when I was prepping for this character, it really became about empathising with the character, and being to foray things I had gone through but amplifying it by a 100. And that was extremely challenging.”
She went on to say, “Throughout the film, there is so much struggle and conflict, there is never really an happy moment for her. We shot continuously for two months and we thought to stay in this zone of conflict and aggression throughout. Finding and understanding what is that one thing for which you would through any single length to achieve.”
The star also added that she would go through such extreme lengths perhaps only for her family. Fernandez also revealed that she is extremely excited to see how the audience react to it.
‘Mrs Serial Killer’ is available now on Netflix.
