She made her big screen debut seven years ago and Jacqueline Fernandez says she is a much more confident actor today and feels ready to take up challenging roles. The actor first appeared in Sujoy Ghosh’s fantasy drama ‘Aladin’ before bagging her breakthrough role in Mohit Suri’s psychological thriller ‘Murder 2’.

“I am a more confident actor today. The change is definitely inevitable. It needs to be there, you need to grow. So that’s why I am looking forward to a lot more challenging roles today than ever before,” Jacqueline said. The 31-year-old actor has worked in big films like ‘Race 2’, ‘Brothers’, ‘Housefull 3’ and the Salman Khan-starrer ‘Kick’.

Asked if directors have tapped her full potential as an actor and Jacqueline said, “Possibly yes. I don’t know if directors have tapped into it but maybe, I wasn’t ready before. Now I do feel ready to take on more challenging stuff. Earlier, I think I probably had not given enough (in my roles) because I wasn’t ready for them.” The actor, who recently starred in ‘Dishoom’, is set for her next ‘A Flying Jatt’.

Jacqueline feels her perspective towards the craft of acting has changed and she is willing to contribute a lot more than what she used to earlier. “Now, the kind of roles I do and the films I take on, I look at them in a different way. The perspective has definitely changed. I am enjoying the process. So from now on, I will give them a lot more so then it helps even the directors a lot.”

‘A Flying Jatt’ will feature Jacqueline as the love interest of Tiger Shroff’s character of a superhero. The Remo D’Souza-directed superhero-action movie is scheduled to release on August 25.
