Jackky stays off television
Gone are the days when a film actor turning to television made headlines. Many leading actors, today, are either judging or hosting shows on the tube. However, actor Jacqueline Fernandez (above) doesn’t want to join the club, just yet.
It seems that even a big pay cheque couldn’t convince the actor to accept an offer to host a dance-based reality TV show. A source close to Jacqueline reveals, “A leading lifestyle channel will launch a new dance based reality show. It will feature contestants from all over the world. The makers felt that Jacqueline will be apt to host the show. In the last week of September, they approached her for the same, and even offered her a huge amount. However, she wasn’t convinced.”
So, what exactly stopped her? The source says that the 30-year-old actor doesn’t think that the time is right for her to take up a television show. “She is not averse to the idea, and neither does she want to undermine the power of Indian television. But, at present, she wants to focus solely on films. She feels that it’s too early in her career to do both films and TV. When she feels settled enough, she will consider doing TV too,” says the source.
Jacqueline was last seen in Brothers alongside actors Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra.
