Jacqueline: I find it demeaning to ask for favours

From a point where she was wondering what to do next to a situation where she is in a position to pick and choose from what is being offered to her, it has been quite some turnaround for Jacqueline Fernandez who is riding high on the super-success of MURDER 2. Her uninhibited sex appeal played a major role in pulling the audience and after that it was the film as a whole that did the trick.

It wasn't an easy going though in the beginning since she had to wait and watch as the poor box office run of ALADIN and JAANE KAHAN SE AAYI HA' was out of people memory. However unlike many other actors who come up with standard quotes around 'my friends and family were my support system during this period of turmoil', Jackie stands up and admits that she has been pretty much on her own even till date.

"I never had any misgivings that you can have friends from the industry but then they can do only so much," she gets serious here, "I never found myself engaging with someone established in a conversation around 'Please do this for me or push my name here or there'. In fact all through last year many people advised me that I need to up my PR machinery or become more aggressive. However my belief was that if I had talent, I would eventually get work and a director will cast me for sure. I never even thought of taking any other route."

But in the industry where connections are what take one forward and recommendations are the order of the day, what made her take a different recourse?

"Honestly I would have felt that as demeaning to ask for favours from friends or acquaintances," she reasons, "It would have been unfair to the director as well as the story to step in just because of my connections. I didn't even want to go into that direction. I guess some strong conviction and belief in myself worked after all. Of course a little longer and I may have started doubting my place under the sun here. Thankfully these new films happened at just the right time."
