Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Jac­que­line

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.
