Jacqueline Fernandez has been a part of some of the most commercially successful movies like Housefull 3 and Judwaa 2. 

In an interview with a leading daily, Jacqueline revealed how she loves commercial cinema and said, "I am a lover of cinema, and, in fact, would watch a lot of world cinema, foreign films as well as small niche movies [when I was growing up]. But still, I would be really excited about big commercial cinema, as it would make me laugh or cry."

Jacqueline is going to be starring in a female-oriented movie as the actress is set to collaborate with filmmaker Ribhu Dasgupta in the Hindi adaptation of the 2015 book, The Girl on the Train. The novel is written by British author Paula Hawkins and is a psychological thriller.

"I am not going to do a female-oriented film just for the sake of it. I really loved the book but I must say that I didn’t like the film as much (laughs)," the actress stated.

Talking more about the movie, Jacqueline said, "I am very excited about the film because the character is flawed and has so many different dimensions. So I am really looking forward to playing her."

Earlier, Ribhu spoke to a leading tabloid about the movie and said,  "I have just finished the script. Jackie has come on board as the protagonist. While the novel had an ensemble cast, our film will revolve around her character. I have been looking forward to working with her and this seemed like a perfect project to collaborate."

Jacqueline performed well in Murder 2, Kick, Brothers, Roy & Race 2. So I'm actually looking forward to seeing her in this project as she will be carrying it on her shoulders. Instead of writing her off guys, she did achieve a lot for a foreigner in India, she's been here 8 years now and speaks Hindi well now too. Give her a chance and let's see what she does in this film.

Sorry, I like Jacqueline, but unless she gets some serious acting skills, she will NEVER be able to carry a movie on her own. She will always be part of an ensemble cast. If she devoted the same amount of time to pole dancing and MMA, to acting. Then she would be able to achieve much more.

I think she's really an underestimated actress. She is talented. She did a great job in brothers that real acting. She just needs to do more performance worthy movies and she will do great

Jacqueline is capable of giving a good performance. She acted well in Brothers. I wish she was more careful in choosing her scripts. She'll do well by focusing less on glamorous roles and more on emotional roles.

Good news is that her limited talent will keep her away from any serious movie.. Male or female centric

she is absolutely correct...Jacquiline is still an ultra glamorous, young, vibrant and breezy actress...she will fit for commercial movies in young bubbly characters...she can set fire steamy scenes with her hot body, sexy expressions and super smooches with her gorgeous lips...so she can continue in glamorous roles without a sigh of thought.
