Jacqueline wants to break her bold, glamorous image

Mumbai, Dec 8 (IANS) After doing bold and glamorous roles in films like "Murder 2" and "Housefull 2", Jacqueline Fernandez now wants to break out of that image, though she admits it is a risky step.

The actress feels people are just waiting to stereotype an actor and she doesn't want to do same roles again.

"It does take a conscious effort (to change your image), because people are just waiting to stereotype you. If you have done a movie which is successful, and your performance is successful, then people want to encash on that. You have to put your foot down," Jacqueline said.

But after having achieved success, she does feel it is risky to change the image.

"It is risky because people don't like being said 'no'. But you just have to do what is good for you. I love actors who can shock you. Like Ranbir Kapoor, every single character he does is different. Even Priyanka Chopra challenges herself and I like that," said the actress, who made her Bollywood debut with Sujoy Ghosh's "Aladin".

Jacqueline will now be seen in Abbas-Mustan's "Race 2" and says the film is very glamorous.

"'Race 2' is not gory. It is more glamorous. It has got a rich backdrop to it. It is not dark, it is all about suspense," she said.

The film, which releases Jan 25 next year, also features Deepika Padukone and Ameesha Patel. Jacqueline says they share a good rapport with each other.

"I had the experience of working with other actresses in 'Housefull 2' and we got along really well. We really bonded and it made the experience really good. Even in 'Race 2', we (Deepika and Ameesha) got along. You see them as your team. I don't think you should even think about rivalry," she said.

Asked if she ever felt threatened by having other actresses in the same film, the 27-year-old said: "I am comfortable with it. I think what works for me is that, I look at it as different characters. You make the character your own and be confident with that. I don't think it threatens you in any way, if you follow your own track and do well," she said.
