Jacqueline Fernandez looks slimmer and more petite in real life when she popped in at our office for a chat with her fans on Monday.
The Sri Lankan beauty who made her debut in Aladin was quite delighted to hear from her fans, who are dying to see more of her in her new movie, Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai, which releases on April 9.
For those who missed the chat, here's what transpired.
Jacqueline says, hi guys! im here finally, its me Jacqueline Fernandez
jack asked, Hi Jacqueline. How do you find bollywood?
Jacqueline answers, I'm loving it here... it's really professional and you get to meet great people. It's also something I've always wanted to do and I'm finally doing it!
amit asked, hi jacqueline I m dying to see you in Janne Kahan Se Aayi Hai
Jacqueline answers, Please don't miss it at the cinemas on April 9. I'm hoping to see you there!
lubu asked, Ms Fernandez. How comfortable are you with Hindi now? Are the movie scripts in English? How difficult is it to understand the sentiment of any scene when it is in any other language.
Jacqueline answers, Hey there! I am somewhat comfortable with Hindi now but am still in the process of learning. I'm thoroughly enjoying it, though!
apadhy asked, Hi Jacqueline, who is your dream actor/actress in Bollywood you want to act with?
Jacqueline answers, I would love to act with Ranbir Kapoor. He's one of my favourites!
'The media tries to make it look like Ritiesh and me are in a relationship'
milena asked, Whats your favouite song from JKSAH? What's your next project? Where you ever been to Vienna? Love to you my dear
Jacqueline answers, The title song Jaane Na Jaane is my favourite, I'm sure you guys will also love the slow song which will be out soon.
priya asked, How did you get the oppurtunities in JKSAH and Aladin? Did you have any screen test?
Jacqueline answers, For Aladin, I had to go through an audition and luckily JKSAH happened through that.
Chakde asked, Hey Jacq, you have a stunning look, but why you are always found with Ritesh. This is not to link you with him.
Jacqueline answers, Good question! Me and Ritiesh are promoting our movie so we will be seen in public a lot. The media tries to make it look like we are in a relationship but really we are just doing our job and promoting our movie.
Retan asked, Good to know that you are from Venus... but how do you feel about acting from a different planet... because the emotions would be different... Dont you think?
Jacqueline answers, Hahaha... That's a funny question but aliens are great actors so I didnt have too much of a problem!
abdulwahab asked, Hi, Which is your favourite Hindi filim?
Jacqueline answers, I love Dev D and Devdas! Both types of cinema interest me a lot.
'Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai is extremely funny and emotional at the same time'
basavaraj asked, When you will come to Bangalore?
Jacqueline answers, Very soon. I'm sure as we're starting a city tour to promote JKSAH and Bangalore is definitely one of them!
sushil asked, Hi Jacq, Can you please tell us your forthcoming movie.
Jacqueline answers, My next film is Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai and it's about a boy from Earth who is trying to help an alien from Venus in her search for love. It's extremely funny and emotional at the same time. Make sure you catch it on April 9.
rajeshmamta17 asked, What is your future plan about acting?
