However, the model-turned-young actress denies it all, saying she takes her own decisions and no one is playing mentor to her. When Jacqueline started shooting for her yet-be-released film, Housefull 2, helmed by Sajid, sparks flew and soon there were reports that they are dating and would get married this year. Most industry folks feel that Sajid keeps a watch on the films she signs. In an interview, Jacqueline Fernandez told PTI, “No.. he (Sajid) is not my mentor, I don't actually have one. I don't have any mentor. I am very professional person, I have never had any mentor. And no he never does tell me what films to do and what not. I think for me it is important that I make my own decisions.”
Jacqueline further went on to say, “As I am not from the industry..I am an outsider, so it is easy for me to make mistakes as I don't know how things work in the industry, how people function. It is important to make your own mistakes and learn from them and not based on someone else advice to know what you are doing is right," she said. The 26-year-old made her debut in tinsel town with Aladin (2010) opposite Riteish Deshmukh. In her next film Jaane Kahaan Se Aayi Hai she was again paired opposite Riteish, but both these films did no magic at the box office. This was followed by a cameo in Housefull and a full-fledged role in Murder 2. More than her professional life, she was talked more about for her rumoured relation with Sajid which she thinks is unfair.
