Jacqueline Fernandez has several commercial hits to her credit in the form of 'Kick', 'Housefull 3' and others. But the actress says that she is now keen to do challenging roles.
In an interview to Film Companion Jacqueline admitted that her roles so far haven't been too meaty, but she looks forward to challenging herself in the future.
She said, " The reason why it took me so long for this is that for the longest time I never really had that confidence as an actress. If someone had offered me a really meaty role I never thought I would be able to do it. I watched Anushka, Deepika and Priyanka's performances and I am like 'how did they do that.' They are so good and confident. They know what they are doing. But now I feel that I can. I feel I have done enough films now and it would be very disappointing to myself and to my viewers, followers and fans if I don't move up and if I don't challenge myself. Trust me, people love seeing actors and actresses take those risks and challenge themselves. I think that really works well. "
She further said that she is actively scouting for such roles. She added, "This year I knew I had three releases. Honestly before it used to be like 'okay, whose the hero'. If I was offered something with a big hero I would be like 'oh I am doing the film.' I wouldn't ask about my role. I knew the film would be big. In my head I would be like 'oh at least I have a big film irrespective of what my role was. Now it's like 'okay, it's a huge film but what's my role.' Is there something which I haven't done before. Is it going to be challenging for me? I want to prep for something. (laughs)
We would love to see more of you, girl!
