MUMBAI: Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who will be seen in Karan Malhotra's directorial "Brothers", says that her role as a young mother in the film was "challenging".
"The role was challenging for me, because I am not a mother. And it wasn't really an ordinary situation, or an ordinary family, it was a lot more dramatic," says Jacqueline.
"It is a young mother's struggle with her husband and daughter. And I am grateful to Karan, because I was really thrown to deep ends with this role" she further added.
In the movie, Jacqueline's daughter suffers from "kidney failure" and her husband, Akshay Kumar, takes on a fight challenge to win prize money in order to get her better treatment.
"Whatever I have learnt from this movie, has helped me immensely as an actor", says the "Roy" actress.
