Bored of her good girl image, Jacqueline wants to play a ‘baddie’
Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who is riding high on the success of her last film ‘Dishoom’, is known for playing glamourous and girl-next-door roles. But, the actress says that she now wants to play a villain in one of her upcoming films.
The 31-year-old star, who has starred in films like Aladin, Housefull and Kick among others in her seven-year-long Bollywood career, feels it is time to try something new. “I would love to play a villain because this year also my roles have been very glamorous or very girl-next-door. I feel now I want to get into more villain kind of roles,” Jacqueline told PTI.
When asked about her favorite genre, the Sri Lankan beauty confessed that she enjoys fantasy the most. “I love fantasy and anything to do with superhero or fairy tales or even magic, I just love that.”
The actress is currently prepping up for the release of her upcoming superhero action film ‘A Flying Jatt’. The film, helmed by Remo D’Souza, stars Tiger Shroff in the role of a desi superhero and Hollywood actor Nathan Jones plays the role of his nemesis. The film will hit theatres on August 25.
Talking about her experience of shooting with Tiger, Jacqueline praised her co-star for being supportive on the sets and called him a professional actor. “I’ve learnt a lot from Tiger. He is very professional and talented. So, that was a fantastic experience for me to be able to work with him.”
The actress also said that she is open to doing Hollywood projects and it would be a dream come true if she gets to work with her childhood celebrity crush, Leonardo DiCaprio. “I idolized Leonardo DiCaprio ever since I was a kid when I first watched Romeo + Juliet. I have been his biggest fan all my life,” she said.
