She is not scared of the cut-throat competition in Bollywood but actor Jacqueline Fernandez says she keeps analysing trends in the film industry.

The actor said she continuously questions her career decisions as it helps her in carving her own niche in movies.

"The competition doesn't get on my nerves but there are days when I contemplate them. It's important to gauge, understand and ask questions. Working in the industry gives me extreme joy and purpose. At the same time, you want to be at the top of your game," Jacqueline said.

"There are days when I am like, 'Okay, this is the competition I am facing now, what could I be doing, how to rise above this, what's working now that others are doing'. You need to continuously keep asking yourself questions so that you are always on top of your game," she added.

The 32-year-old actor said she wants to explore other arenas beyond acting. "Acting is more like a passion for me. I love it but it doesn't mean it defines me as a person. As a person, there are so many things I need to explore. I love branching out to do things which gives me immense happiness," she said.
In her quest, Jacqueline has now become the co-owner of Delhi Heroes in the MTV Super Fight League (SFL) a mixed martial arts tournament.

"For a woman to support something like this is a little out of the box. What caught my attention was they do have women fighters. I thought this is something that needs to be encouraged. I felt this is something I want to promote," she said.
