In the Capital recently as a face of an upcoming fashion week, actor Jacqueline Fernandez seemed excited about scouring the city for some quick shopping. “I love Delhi because I get to shop so much! While I can drop into a mall in south Delhi for luxury, I also like the city for its street shopping. Khan Market is another place I like to check out in the Capital,” the 28-year-old former beauty queen told us.
When asked if she put on a disguise when she went out on Delhi streets, prompt came the reply: “I don’t need to! You won’t recognise me without my makeup. So the trick is to go out without putting any on.”
The actor further told us about her upcoming projects. “I’m doing Kick with Salman Khan, but we haven’t started shooting for it yet. Then there is Roy with Ranbir Kapoor by debutant director Vicky Singh,” she said, adding that she get’s excited about working with new filmmakers.
“The star cast is not my concern — I usually go for directors. I love working with first-timers, it’s really exciting.” And any films she watched recently that she loved? “I haven’t got the time to see any because I was busy traveling. Even Sonam (Kapoor) was like, ‘you haven’t seen Raanjhanaa yet?’ And now, I really want to!”
Diverting from the filmy realm and delving into the personal, we asked Jacky how she handles personal controversies, rumours and speculations when they are splashed across the media. “There have never been any hard feelings, ever. Journalists have a job to do, just like us actors. But yes, sometimes, it does hurt. But, in an industry like ours, you need to get over things quickly and learn to move on.”
