Peo­ple for­get celebri­ties are also hu­man be­ings: Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez

Scru­tiny is the part and par­cel of be­ing fa­mous but ac­tress Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez says things be­come ridicu­lous at times as peo­ple some­times for­get that even celebri­ties are hu­mans. The 31-year-old Dishoom ac­tress said the stars are ex­pected to be proper al­ways, which is a bit too much as they can also have bad days. “As a celebrity, a lot is ex­pected from you. It can even be a lit­tle ridicu­lous. Peo­ple at times don’t re­alise that even we are hu­man be­ings. Like ev­ery­one has their bad days we too have, but the pro­jec­tion of things is so dif­fer­ent that you see it dif­fer­ently,” Jac­que­line told PTI. The ac­tress, who came from Sri Lanka to find suc­cess in Bol­ly­wood, said dur­ing her ini­tial days in the in­dus­try, the judg­ments peo­ple passed on her would dis­turb her. But she has now learnt the art of ig­nor­ing it and has come out stronger. “If you al­low the scru­tiny to take a toll on you, it can even af­fect the ac­tor within you. Ini­tially, I had no idea what fame, act­ing and this film in­dus­try was. I used to get swayed by what ev­ery­one was say­ing. “But, then you come to a point where you are like ‘Why some­body else should de­ter­mine who I am?’ Now I don’t even no­tice peo­ple judg­ing me. I used to feel the pres­sure be­fore, now I don’t get into it at all.”

Jac­que­line feels deal­ing with things both in­side and out­side of the film in­dus­try has changed her a lot as a per­son and she is happy with the way her life has shaped up. “There is a huge change in me now. When peo­ple fi­nally un­der­stand that they don’t need to fit in all the time and they can be them­selves, it shows ex­ter­nally as well. There are things that in­ter­nally hap­pen but they show a switch in your at­ti­tude as well. “I am pretty happy with my life. I am happy with the way I am look­ing and the work I am do­ing. There is in­ner peace which I feel right now,” she said. With A Fly­ing Jatt be­ing her last re­lease of the year, the ac­tress is now busy film­ing Raj and DK’s un­ti­tled project with Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra. She is also do­ing a Dharma project which stars Sushant Singh Ra­jput as the male lead. The ac­tress turned show­stop­per for de­signer Ash­sih N Soni’s new col­lec­tion at the on­go­ing Lakme Fash­ion Week Win­ter/Fes­tive 2016. In­dian Ex­press
