She may be best known for her glamourous and girl-next-door roles in films but Jacqueline Fernandez says she now wants to try her hand at playing villain in films.

The 31-year-old Dishoom star, who has starred in films like Aladin, Housefull series and Kick among others in her seven-year-long Bollywood career, feels it is time to try something new.

“I would love to play a villain because this year also my roles have been very glamorous or very girl-next-door. I feel now I want to get into more villain kind of roles,” Jacqueline told PTI.

Jacqueline praised her co-star Tiger for being supportive on the sets and called him a professional actor.

“I’ve learnt a lot from Tiger. He is very professional and talented. So, that was a fantastic experience for me to be able to work with him.”

The actress says she is open to Hollywood projects and it is her dream to work with The Revenant star Leonardo DiCaprio, who is her childhood celebrity crush.

“I idolized Leonardo DiCaprio ever since I was a kid when I first watched Romeo + Juliet. I have been his biggest fan all my life,” she said.
