Sri Lankan-born Jacqueline Fernandez who made her debut in Bollywood seven years ago says she is a more confident actress today and feels ready to take up challenging roles.
The actress first appeared in Sujoy Ghosh’s fantasy drama Aladin before bagging her breakthrough role in Mohit Suri’s psychological thriller Murder 2. “I am a more confident actress today. The change is definitely inevitable. It needs to be there, you need to grow. So that’s why I am looking forward to a lot more challenging roles today than ever before,” Jacqueline has told the media.
The 31-year-old actress has worked in blockbuster like Race 2, Brothers, Housefull 3 and the Salman Khan starrer Kick.
Asked if directors have not tapped her full potential as an actress, Jacqueline said, “Possibly yes. I don’t know if directors haven’t tapped into it but maybe, I wasn’t ready before. Now I do feel ready to take on more challenging roles. Earlier, I think I probably had not given enough (in my roles) because I wasn’t ready for them.”
The actress, who recently starred in Dishoom is set for her next, A Flying Jatt. Jacqueline feels her perspective towards the craft of acting has changed and she is willing to contribute a lot more than what she used to earlier.
The Remo D’Souza-directed superhero-action movie in which she acts along with Tiger Shroof is scheduled to release on August 25. – CINEWS
