Fernandez (right) enjoys doing action on-screen and is keen to do more movies in the same genre. Jacqueline tried her hand at action for the first time during A Flying Jatt alongside actor Tiger Shroff. And now, the actor will be seen doing a lot more of it in a couple of films releaing this year.
“It’s an amazing genre and I feel very comfortable about it. If I could be the action icon in Bollywood, it would be great. The roles in action genre for females are less as compared to actors,” says the 31-year-old actor.
“I am dying to train and do roles that give me the opportunity to do action,” she adds.
The Kick actor feels filmmakers in the Hindi film industry should draw inspiration from Hollywood, when it comes to heroines doing action oriented films.
“When it comes to action for females, then we can take a little bit of cue from what they (Hollywood) are doing. But if you look at actors like Tiger Shroff, there is lot that West can learn from us. He is phenomenal as an action hero and he does his own stunts and he is so good at it,” says Jacqueline.
