Jacqueline Fernandez was crowned as Miss Sri Lanka in 2006. She was into modelling since a young age and took acting lessons as well. In 2009, she made her Bollywood debut with Aladin. This was followed by Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai in 2010. Both films failed miserably and her career was almost over. In 2011, she tasted her first success with Murder 2 opposite Emraan Hashmi. Even though her next two ventures (Housefull 2 and Race 2) were successful, she had little to do in the films. Her first major success came with Kick in 2014, where she was praised for her acting.
In 2015 she appeared in 3 films, but all were unsuccessful. In 2016, she saw another two failures but had some consolation with the successful Dishoom. Since 2015, Jacqueline has been starring in multiple top production projects. She has also formed a reputation of appearing in item numbers.
She landed into controversy when Sikh Community objected to a kirpan she wore in a song in the movie Dishoom. It was rumoured that Jacqueline rejected Jism 2 due to being forced by then-boyfriend Sajid Khan.
Jacqueline is a huge fan of SRK, Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie. She loves eating French cuisine. She is a fitness freak and loves doing gymnastics, swimming or dancing when she gets time.
