Jacqueline Fernandez is one of the hottest properties in B-town right now and every actor wants to work with her. Ironically she doesn’t agree that she has “arrived” in Bollywood just yet. She says there is still long way to go for her to achieve something substantial in the Hindi film industry.
Jacqueline forayed into Bollywood with ‘Aladin’ and went on to do some multi-starrer films like ‘Kick’, ‘Roy’, ‘Housefull’ and ‘Dishoom’. She recently starred in ‘A Flying Jatt’ and the movie has done decently in cinema halls.
Asked if she feels like going back to her country she says, “I have done quite a bit in Sri Lanka. I have worked in Sri Lankan movies and we did something with Miss Sri Lanka pageant as well in terms of mentoring and judging. I think right now in order to do stuff like that (giving back to the people), I want to establish myself enough first. I still feel I have a lot more to do and achieve. Once I am able to do that, I will be able to focus my attention on things like reaching out, helping and giving back to people. It really needs to come at the point when you feel you have enough to give back. Right now I feel I still have to do lot more.”
She says there is “still a bit more to go” before she arrives in Bollywood.
Jacqueline is currently one of the judges on ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Season 9’. “We have such an amazing time together and everyone will vouch for that. We all have great, positive energy and the journey is great,” she said.
Talking about her endorsements Jacqueline says, “I have been very selective with the brands with whom I associate, which is why there are very few but fantastic brands (on my endorsement plate). I only go for brands that I am loyal to, as for me, authenticity is very important. It’s the belief that you have with the products, that sells it. If you don’t have that belief, people will notice it. A lot of times things do look forced, which I think should not happen,” she said.
Very interesting Jackie! We love watching you no matter where you star.
