Hot Jacqueline Fernandez to Star in Sri Lankan Film

Jacqueline Fernandez is not your average Bollywood star who has spent her life growing up in India with Bollywood actors, actresses within her family. This leading lady is of mixes Sri Lankan and Malaysian and born in Sri Lanka itself. With this as her background, Jacqueline now explores the option of starring in a Sri Lankan film, depending on her Bollywood schedule of course.

Sri Lankan cinema is knocking on this beauty's door, a source close to the actress dishes to Times of India and reveals, "She is in Colombo shooting an ad for an international food brand. While there, she got offered a Sinhalese film. Budgets for Sri Lankan movies are quite small compared to Bollywood, and an actor there is paid around US $1,000 for a full-fledged role. "Since Jackie gets paid very well in Bollywood, the director and producer offered to pay her US $10,000 for the part. It's too small an amount for Jackie, as she can make the same amount through appearances in India. But since the role is a cameo and she wants to do something in Sri Lanka, Jackie has decided to do the role for free."

According to Jacqueline's business manager, "After the Sri Lankan cricketers, Jackie is the most popular face there," making her the prime pick for the industry's biggest film.

Jacqueline spent her youth growing up in Bahrain and Australia adding to her rich cultural background. Once she graduated university, she followed her passion and turned to modeling. Jackie's modeling years were quite successful and led her to travel throughout Asia and the Middle East. Jacqueline then took her career to a new level when she enrolled in beauty pageants.

In 2006, Jacqueline was crowned Miss Sri Lankan for Miss Universe. Unfortunately, Jacqueline did not place at Miss Universe, but the opportunity in and of itself boosted her presence in the world. With her face a fresh one within India, Jacqueline got her first Bollywood role in Aladin across from Riteish Deshmukh and Amitabh Bachchan. Jackie played the leading role of Jasmine and earned the IIFA Award for Star Debut of the Year and Stardust's Exciting New Face Award. We then saw Jackie in Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai and then as the item girl in Housefull's "Aapka Kya Hoga (Dhanno)." Most recently, Jacqueline starred in Murder 2. Despite the less than impressive films thus far, Jackie has managed to grace every red carpet and build up quite a name in Bollywood.

Perhaps the Sri Lankan film will boost her fame another notch and then Jacqueline will get more substantial roles increasing her credibility as an actress.
