Jaqueline Fernandez Bares it ALL in an Interview

Jaqueline Fernandes is finally going to make it big. The Sri Lankan beauty who was noticed for her talent, only featured in forgettable films like Aladin, Jaane Kahan se Aayi Hai and did an item number ‘Dhanno’ in Houseful. But finally, it looks like she is making the big splash in Mahesh Bhatt’s Murder 2, the sequel to the famous film that made Mallika Sherawat a big name in 2004. The leggy beauty has also bagged Housefull 2 (a full length role, this time) and is being highly considered for Raaz 3 to be directed by none other than the horror guru Vikram Bhatt.

Here are excerpts of the interview with Jacqueline as she talks about her sexy image and her big plans

What do you think of your Bollywood journey so far?
The films I did are different from each other and I enjoyed playing both roles and also the item number that I did in Housefull. I am lucky to have worked in two films. It’s been an exciting phase so far. I have just started my career and have a long way to go.

The Bhatts have been credited with being the best platform to the career of their leading ladies.
I am fortunate that I got an opportunity to be a part of such a huge franchise. The Bhatts are an amazing family and a production house to work with and I guess anyone will back me up for this. I have had the best time working with them as they treated me like family and have pampered me on the sets and they were always open for suggestions. I am looking forward to doing a lot more movies with them. I just hope that I have delivered what they expected.

Have you lived up to their expectations?
There was a lot of speculation and expectations when I signed Murder-2. I guess I have lived up to the expectations as this was the first movie where I’ve done a lot of research. I had to do a lot of homework for my character. I was very particular about how I would project certain scenes. It was very difficult. I suddenly realised that this is what acting is (Laughs).

Can the audience expect steamier and more intense love making scenes in the sequel?
I know people are expecting a lot from this movie because of the success of the first movie. I feel people should leave behind whatever memories they have of Murder. Murder needed to have a lot of sexuality and boldness because it was based on a woman who was cheating on her husband which was shown so beautifully. This movie is completely different.

You play a centre-spread model in the film. Did you have any reservations of portraying such a bold character?
Let me tell you one thing. Actresses cannot have any inhibitions while portraying bold characters. It is something that we learn on the first page of the book on acting. We all portray a lot of characters and once we get into a shot we have to come out of our skin and be a completely different person. I wanted to explore myself. To be honest, sensuous roles appeal to me as they are very different from the regular fare.

A lot of leading actresses have shied away from doing intimate scenes. What is your take on that?
That is something which I cannot understand. A sensuous or a steamy scene can be done very aesthetically or in a way that titillates the audience. As an actor one needs to know the boundaries and has to put a lot of faith in the directors and co-actors. At the end of the day it is acting and if it fits into the script then it needs to be there.

What do you think about the comparisons between you and Mallika Sherwat. Does that bother you?
It bothers me when my role is getting compared to her. The stories are not the same and it doesn’t make any sense to make any comparisons. On a personal level I don’t have any complaints when people compare me to her. For me, Mallika Sherawat is someone who is so real and is unafraid to be herself. She speaks her mind and in an industry which is quite fake, she is someone who is completely different. She needs to be applauded for where she is today.

Will you replace Mallika as the next sex bomb of the industry?
I don’t want to replace her. I am not trying to be a sex bomb or the next sexy actress on the block. I am trying to be versatile and it will reflect in the movies I’m doing or will do in future.

How was your chemistry with Emraan Hashmi?
I got along with Emraan very well. He was very quiet when we met for the first time but as soon as the shooting comenced in Goa, he opned up and we had a blast. He has a very dark sense of humour which a lot of people don’t know about.

Will you do de-glam roles?
Yes, I would love to do it. I hate repeating myself and I would love to do different characters.

What are your future films?
I am doing Housefull 2 We had done a photo-shoot. Asin was very cordial when we met. I have known Zarine and she is a very sweet girl. I consider her as my younger sister. I am playing a very overtly righteous girl who grew up in London and she stands up for what she thinks is right with a comic element in it.

What about Raaz 3?
We will have Mahesh Bhatt making the announcement soon.
