I am the sequel queen: Jacqueline Fernandez

Jacqueline talks shop and contrary to her sexy image, reveals her bookworm side.

Actress Jacqueline Fernandez is super-busy these days. And it’s not just her films that have her all tied down. She’s also doing up her house in between a host of other things. But besides doing commercial Bollywood cinema, the pretty lass apparently has also been offered a Hollywood film. Talking about her Hollywood aspirations, Jacqueline says, “It’s really amazing that people in Hollywood follow our work, and yes, I was offered a Hollywood film, but things are yet to materialise. However, I am in a happy space and I’d love to do crossover cinema.”

So the ‘number 2’ girl, who tasted success with Murder 2, was also a part of the recent box office success, Housefull 2. She’s now working hard towards making a hattrick with her upcoming film Race 2. “I think number 2 is my lucky number and maybe I am the sequel queen. In fact my flat number is also 2. (Smiles) And it’s amazing that all the sequels I’ve been a part of did well. I am very excited Race 2. But frankly, more than anything, I just wish to do good work and enjoy life to the fullest,” adds  Jackie.
Though Jackie sports a hot look in her films these days, not many know she was a bookworm back in school. She says, “I never really was the ramp model type. I was actually short as per modeling standards and it used to make me nervous. I guess I never belonged there. But what I miss is school and doing my home work, I know it may sound weird but I want to learn literature, history and get as much education on all these topics — I’d feel really enriched. In fact, when I started learning Hindi, I’d be excited to get home and go back to the books scattered around. I just feel whenever I get time from my work, I should try and complete my studies in these subjects. It’s one of the things I want to do for sure.”
