Actor Sidharth Malhotra is surprised that his co- star Jacqueline Fernandez never seemed stressed out on sets of A Gentleman, even when they shot some real tough scenes for the film.

“We did tough and hectic schedules for this film but she was never stressed out. I envy that. I wish I had that magic,” Sidharth said.

The Kick actress too was all praises for Sidharth.

“This is our second film together after Brothers but we just had one scene together. This is the first time we are sharing screen space together. It was great fun working with him, we got along well. It’s not that I am happy all the time. I am happy as I work with a good team.”
