Actress Jacqueline Fernandez considers her film Kick as a turning point in her acting career adding that she gained confidence in herself after featuring in the Salman Khan-starrer.
“Since Kick, it has been great work (for me) and it has been good. The offers have been great too. I am hoping I just keep growing,” Jacqueline said addressing the media.
“I think what went wrong before ‘Kick’ was… I feel I didn’t have any confidence. That was the only thing which went wrong. When I look back, I feel I didn’t have the confidence back then,” she added.
Kick, released in 2014, had done well at the box office giving a foothold for the Sri Lankan beauty to make her foray into commercial cinema in Bollywood. “It is extremely exciting. When you are a part of big commercial films, it’s an amazing feeling. Having back-to-back releases feels great. It is taxing as well. You have to be on it, be aware, be focussed… And it can get very taxing.”
Jacqueline was recently seen in Housefull 3 and Dishoom and now she is busy promoting her forthcoming entertainer A Flying Jatt.
Talking of ‘A Flying Jatt’ Jacqueline Fernandez also said that she was initially scared of 7-feet tall Australian actor and retired professional wrestler Nathan Jones, but later bonded well.
“First time when I saw Nathan, he looked scary. I used to talk to Nathan about Hollywood, I would ask him about how it is working with this or that actor or actress. We used to gossip about Hollywood. It was cool. I enjoyed his company,” said Jacqueline.
“Both Tiger and Nathan are introverts. But when you put them in front of camera Nathan would scream, shout and Tiger would become a superhero so he did action and stuff. It is just amazing to work with people like that. They are nice and calm people,” the 31-year-old actress said.
In Remo D’Souza directed superhero film A Flying Jatt, Jacqueline will be seen romancing Tiger.
“Romance can look sparkling even if the actors have not spoken to each other. Sparks can happen on screen even if you don’t know the opposite person well. Even though Tiger is an introvert, we had some common things between us like fitness and we both are driven by our work,” she said.
Jacqueline said the Heropanti actor is someone who gave her own space and respect. – CINEWS
