I was always comfortable in front of camera: Jacqueline Fernandez

Mumbai, March 31 (IANS) Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez, who shot to fame in India through performances in films like “Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai” and “Kick”, says though acting was not her childhood dream, she was “always comfortable in front of the camera”.

“I did a bunch of things from the age of 14. I hosted TV shows on local channels in Bahrain and did some modelling. I was always comfortable in front of the camera,” Jacqueline said in the April issue of Jabong’s The Juice magazine in its April issue.

“I knew I’d be doing something in the entertainment industry, something that required me to be on television or required me to be a journalist or a broadcaster. I wanted to intern with CNN or BBC. Their investigative reporting inspired me.

“I even thought I’d be a documentary filmmaker, because I loved travelling,” she added.

She was such a travel junkie that when Jacqueline turned 16, she went to London on her personal investments that she had made through modelling and TV shows.

“I travelled on my own for 10 days. It was a crazy experience. On the second day, I ended up spending all my money and I still had eight more days to go – my first time there and I had no cash and was lost. There were no mobile phones then. One really sweet Indian lady helped me out,” she recollected.

Among her favourite destinations are Japan and Antarctica.

Asked about things she hates about travel, Jacqueline said: “Sometimes, I dislike airports, the immigration and the security process. It’s a big mess and is irritating.”
