However, it is reported that Jackie will not join the promotional activities of Murder 2 as she is will be in London shooting Sajid Khan's ‘Housefull 2’.
In its prequel ‘Housefull’, Jackie performed only an item song, but the she is to have a more substantial role in ‘Housefull 2’, which is said to be the most expensive Bollywood film ever made after Blue.
