Actress Jacqueline Fernandez made her Bollywood debut in 2008 with the film ‘Aladdin’. In her career lasting over a decade, the actress has starred in several hit films and made a mark for herself. But like all other celebrities, Jacqueline too is subjected to hatred and trolling on social media.
Recently, during a chat session with her ‘Bhoot Police’ co-actor Arjun Kapoor, Jacqueline said that some of the social media criticism makes sense to her as she takes it positively. Arjun has started a social media chat session titled ‘Bak Bak with Baba’ that will see the actor talk to his industry friends and family to unearth things that people might not know about.
He dropped a candid chat session with Jacqueline, where they spoke about a multitude of things, from her first crush, her fitness journey to how she tackles trolls. The ‘Gunday’ actor asked Jacqueline, “The meanest thing that you have read about yourself on social media?”
The actress said, “There are a lot of mean things. It’s ok we all get it. I read things about myself how terrible I sound, how terrible my accent is and how I speak Hindi, bad criticism on how I look. I kind of take it like positively. I am like ok what do they mean.”
She added, “Then, I feel may be there is some room for improvement. There is some criticism where you feel this person is being nasty. Some places actually makes sense to me.”
Talking about her first crush to Arjun, Jacqueline said, “There was somebody in school but I can’t name him. I also had a huge crush on Leonardo DiCaprio after watching ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Titanic’ and Ricardo from Backstreet Boys.”
She further revealed that she has “never been on a blind date.”
Arjun, who plays Chiraunji in the horror-comedy, then asked the actress about how important food is to her? Jacqueline shared that she definitely loves to celebrate with food.
She said, “There was a phase in my 20s when I did turn to food and that was late at night. I lived alone so it was like cake, ice cream, anything crispy. I actually did have a terrible relationship with food and then I went like starving for a week which is like really bad for you.”
“So, now it’s about knowing that I don’t need to turn to it, tomorrow is another day and we will get through it,” she quipped.
On the work front, Jacqueline has an amazing line-up of films ahead of her. She will be seen in ‘Attack’, ‘Vikrant Rona’, ‘Cirkus’, ‘Hari Sara Veera Mallu’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’ and ‘Ram Setu’.
