Re­cently, Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez’s dream came true when she got an op­por­tu­nity to shoot for an ad film with Hema Malini. Jac­que­line is a fan of the vet­eran ac­tor, and was very ex­cited to meet her. “Hema ji is one of my favourite ac­tors. I have grown up watch­ing her films,” says Jac­que­line.

Even though she has been in Bol­ly­wood for six years now, Jac­que­line never got an op­por­tu­nity to meet Hema be­fore this. “I’d seen her at events, but this was our first in­ter­ac­tion,” she says, adding that they spent time chat­ting about di­verse top­ics. “Meet­ing her felt spe­cial. We spoke about films, and how things have changed from the time she was a lead­ing lady in Bol­ly­wood, to now,” she says.

Jac­que­line also re­quested Hema to teach her a few Bharatanatyam steps, and to her sur­prise, the 67-year-old obliged. “The kind of grace she has is amaz­ing. It is some­thing I hope I can bring to my per­for­mances too,” she says.
