For Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez, moving to India to have a career in Bollywood was a challenge.

The 30-year-old actress, who made her debut with “Aladin” opposite Riteish Deshmukh and Amitabh Bachchan, said the Hindi film industry has always been supportive of her.

“Moving to India was challenging being a foreigner. I don’t have any family here. I didn’t have anyone to guide me. But I never felt for a second that I am not welcome here. Industry has been very good to me. I am glad that destiny brought me here,” she told reporters here.

“Modelling industry was a good training ground. It is a medium that is about shedding your inhibitions, knowing your body, confidence and that are also the few characteristics which an actor requires. It definitely was a good starting point and a platform,” she said.

Known for her glamorous avatar, Jacqueline in her upcoming outing “Brothers” will be seen playing a mother.

“Brothers is first of its kind. I am taking on a different role compared to the parts I played before in my career. I am taking on the role of a mother, who is going through a certain crisis of her own. This is a very big turning point for me in terms of my role.”

Asked if she had any inhibitions about playing a mother at such an early stage of her career, Jacqueline said, “I didn’t
have any apprehension about playing the role of a mother. I don’t know why actresses have apprehension to play a mother especially when we have mothers of all ages in our world and society.”
