'I was petrified of AB'

MUMBAI: Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez was in the city recently for a fashion show.

When we caught up with her, she told us that though she has modelled before, this was her first show as a Bollywood showstopper. Jacqueline is all set to sizzle in Bollywood, in her forthcoming movie Aladin. She said, “I’ve walked the runway in Delhi before, but the city will remain very special to me because of my first showstopping act here.”

She added that she feels quite lucky to have worked with Big B in her debut film. However, she admits that AB petrified her initially. “The night before I had a scene with him, I just couldn’t sleep. I was tensed up about having to act with such a seasoned actor,” she said.

Jacqueline also said that her B’wood journey hasn’t been a cakewalk. “I had to work hard on my language and dialogue skills. But I’m learning the ropes now
