With her making way to Netflix, Jacqueline Fernandez is set to essay dark role in the fil. When asked how she is prepping for the same, she said, “Usually before my first day on any film set, I start keeping a journal. It’s fun to embark on that journey with it and later read what I’ve written.”

When asked about the time first she learnt that she wanted to act in films, she said, “I was seven years old, I think I was watching Gone With the Wind, and I just knew that I wanted to be that actress. I wanted to be Vivien Leigh.”

Jacqueline Fernandez made her way from Sri Lanka to India and starred in Aladdin. The actress since then has worked with numerous actors including Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, John Abraham, and Varun Dhawan among others. When asked who her heroes are, she said, “So many people. There’s Sajid Nadiadwala, with whom I’ve worked on seven films. Salman Khan, of course. Sujoy Ghosh, who launched me. Sonam Kapoor (Ahuja) has been such a great friend. And Priyanka Chopra (Jonas) inspires me.”

Talking about Priyanka, she further added, “I go to her a lot for advice and she always pushes me to be better,” she told the magazine. Among the directors, she said that she admires Sujoy Ghosh who directed her first film Aladdin.
