As the much-awaited film Aladin releases today, Jacqueline Fernandez must be pretty nervous. Being her debut film, people in the film industry and the viewers will have their eyes fixed on her. Moreover, she must be curious to know the reaction of the audience, as even established actors admit to feeling butterflies in the stomach on Fridays.
Not many actors get the opportunity to start with a big movie. In Aladin, Jacqueline got the break that only star kids enjoy. And acting with superstar Amitabh Bachchan in her very first film is a dream come true. She just couldn't have asked for more.
This Srilankan beauty is a sort of 'Jack of all trade and master of all'. Born and brought up in Bahrain, she did her higher studies in Australia. She was into TV anchoring, TV reporting, modelling and columnist.
In spite of trying her hands in many professions, she never forgot her dream of becoming an actress. She won Miss Sri Lanka crown and went on to represent her country at the Miss Universe contest in 2006. There was no looking back since then. She packed her bags and headed for India.
Her dream turned true when Sujoy Ghosh chose her to play Jasmine in Aladin, which also features Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Riteish Deshmukh. Now, the big question is – will she taste success? Only time can tell this!
Keep your fingers crossed girl!
