Jacqueline Fernandez has been part of a few films that have been hits, but she now feels the need to prove her acting chops. The actor says that she is working hard to showcase her talent, and isn’t satisfied being known as just a pretty face.
“Everyone who works hard — in any profession — wants to be known for their work. I, too, want the audience and the industry to praise me for my acting skills, and not just for starring in hit films. Looking glamorous and being a good dancer may be a part and parcel of my work, but I’m consciously trying to work harder and establish myself as a talented actor. Just being a glam doll won’t satisfy me, or any other actor,” she says.
Jacqueline says that she has a long way to go and plenty to learn. “Acting is a difficult art, and it takes years of training and experience to do justice to it,” feels the actor, who has become conscious about every scene she enacts. She explains, “When I judge my performance, I try to gauge what I should or shouldn’t have done. Between shots, I think about my expressions, dialogue delivery and body language. If you are appreciated for that, it’s an accomplishment.”
