Jacqueline Fernandez credits her success and failure for keeping her balanced and calm. The actress says she doesn't regret any of her decisions."The journey (in Bollywood) has been very rewarding, I have been blessed with opportunities to deliver my best and work with some of the biggest names and films," Jacqueline told IANS in an email interview."I look back and feel satiated to the balance of both successes and failures because both have taught me to be balanced and calm. Whatever I am today is a result of all the choices I made through the journey so I do not regret anything," added the actress of Sri Lankan origin.After winning the Miss Sri Lanka beauty pageant in 2006, she made her debut in the Indian film industry with 2009 film Aladin opposite actor Riteish Deshmukh. The film turned out to be a dud at the box office, but Jacqueline got noticed and went on to do films like Housefull 2, Murder 2, Kick, Brothers, Dishoom and Judwaa 2.She says she has learnt a lot through the journey."Meeting new people and coming across new experiences have given me several lessons which have been fruitful in not just dealing with the challenges in the industry but also the way of life. The love and support of the audience is my biggest asset that I have earned in my professional career," added the actress, who launched Skechers D'Lites range in Mumbai earlier this week.Asked about what she wants to try next, Jacqueline, who skipped an IANS query on the impact of #MeToo movement in Bollywood, says she loves to be surprised."So even I am looking forward to the next challenge," she added.Talking about her association with the shoe brand, Jacqueline said: "I have always loved the late 1990s era when it comes to fashion, especially the dad hats, jeans, and the chunky sneakers have always been my favourite. I was extremely delighted to be a part of the launch of the new range. Being in the showbiz, I love being up-to-date and my interest lies in a casual, trendy and comfortable style of footwear."She feels shoes let you express "yourself and the mood"."You can achieve a look of choice with the perfect shoes," said Jacqueline, whose Sri Lankan film According to Matthew featured in Reminder List of Productions eligible for the 91st Academy Awards.When it comes to picking brand endorsements, the actress says she is "very particular" about this."It is very important that the brands I choose are environment-friendly. I would never endorse a brand that in any way harms or hinders animals," she added.On the film front, she will soon be seen with actor Sushant Singh Rajput in Drive, scheduled to release on June 28.The Dharma Productions' project was earlier locked for release on March 2, 2018. Then it was announced that Drive, which is said to be a heist film, will race to cinema halls on September 7.
I don't regret anything: Jacqueline Fernandez

Actress Deepika Padukone, who was last seen onscreen in Padmaavat, says that everything boils down to the script itself for a film to work at the box office."I think it's amazing and nice for us to say that women-centric or female-centric films are working at a moment like this when we are talking about female role models. Having said that, when it comes to creativity, we need to look beyond female or male," said the actress.One witnessed that female-driven films like Hichki, Tumhari Sulu, Raazi, Piku and many others did exceptional business at the box office whereas films of big stars with big budgets bombed at the box office.Deepika added that for her everything boils down to a film script."It's about the film. It's a different thing that the films that the 'Khans' did, didn't work but there was film like AndhaDun which was led by Ayushmann Khurrana that did wonder at the box office so I think everything boils down to the script itself. But yes, I see a trend where films that are being led by women are doing much better," she said.She also feels that filmmakers now are more open to making female-driven films."We are in place today where directors are changing roles and that's unheard of. If you have a script that has a male protagonist and suddenly directors are like, 'Let me just flip that. Let me just make that female protagonist and then go to so and so with the film' so, you hear of a film that was offered to a male actor two-three years ago and it's coming back to you now with a female protagonist which is a huge achievement," she said.For the actress, the Indian audience has evolved over the years. "As a creative person, I would not like to make this distinction of male-driven or female-driven film. I would just say that great content is what is really working right now. I think a lot of that has to do with the audience. They are ready for that. I don't think it matters anymore who is in the movie," said Deepika."Now you can't blindly say that so and so is in the film, then let's go and watch. I think the year 2018 was a clear indication of that. Right from the promo, poster all of that, I think that the audience has that pulse," she added.Deepika will be seen next in Meghna Gulzar's female-centric' film titled Chhapak which is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.It also stars Vikrant Massey and is co-produced by Deepika herself.
