Jacqueline Fernandez is a Sri Lankan actress and model, currently working in Bollywood films. She is a former beauty queen who won the Miss Sri Lanka Universe in 2006. She has received an International Indian Film Academy Award and Stardust Award for Best Female Debut in 2010, for her role in the Indian film Aladin.
But the Sri Lankan beauty is far from being nervous or apprehensive about being compared to Sherawat’s sensual act. “It’s absolutely okay if comparisons are made. Besides, it’s natural to be compared to Mallika because she did the film Murder, and I’m doing the sequel. I have never met Mallika and I don’t know her personally, but from what I’ve seen of her, I think she is a good actress.”
Fernandez is also unfazed by the fact that the film will have a lot of skin-show and intimate scenes. “I have been a model and done many photo-shoots and shows so I am the most comfortable with my body. Plus as actors, these scenes are always a part of a story. There are 50 -100 crew members when we shoot these scenes, so it’s all work and no play!”
But did she have any apprehensions before she took on the project and she brushes it aside, “Not at all. Murder 2 is a very interesting story; it’s backed by the Bhatts who are known to make good quality film. Mohit is a good director, Emi is a good actor, and there was no reason to have apprehensions.”
Fernandezis looking forward to what the audience’s reaction to her pairing with actor Emraan Hashmi. “I feel we have good chemistry on screen,” she says.
