More than just glamour

MEATY ROLES

Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez feels that actresses are more focussed on getting meaty and quality roles rather than stressing on glamour alone.

“I love the fact that now if I look around at my contemporaries, they are not concentrating on glamour, which they are leaving to red carpet events or photoshoots. They are focussing on roles and I think that’s an amazing thing,” said Fernandez.

The actress, who is awaiting the response to Roy, which hit the screens on February 13, comes from a non-film background. And she believes that the only edge that star children have above “outsiders” is the goodwill they have, courtesy their parents.

“Actors from a film background have the goodwill of their parents. Directors will take care of them. We (outsiders) don’t come with that tag, and there are times we will have to compete and push ourselves to get noticed. Actors who have a backing, they start with support, but there will be a time they have to prove themselves,” she added.

The Housefull 2 actress will also be seen in a host of movies like Bangistan, Brothers, Definition of Fear and According to Mathew. She will make her Hollywood debut this year with Definition of Fear.
