Himalayan Paths

Mumbai, March 31 (IANS) Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez, who shot to fame in India through performances in films like �Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai� and �Kick�, says though acting was not her childhood dream, she was �always comfortable in front of the camera�.

�I did a bunch of things from the age of 14. I hosted TV shows on local channels in Bahrain and did some modelling. I was always comfortable in front of the camera,� Jacqueline said in the April issue of Jabong’s The Juice magazine in its April issue.

�I knew I�d be doing something in the entertainment industry, something that required me to be on television or required me to be a journalist or a broadcaster. I wanted to intern with CNN or BBC. Their investigative reporting inspired me.

�I even thought I�d be a documentary filmmaker, because I loved travelling,� she added.

She was such a travel junkie that when Jacqueline turned 16, she went to London on her personal investments that she had made through modelling and TV shows.

�I travelled on my own for 10 days. It was a crazy experience. On the second day, I ended up spending all my money and I still had eight more days to go – my first time there and I had no cash and was lost. There were no mobile phones then. One really sweet Indian lady helped me out,� she recollected.

Among her favourite destinations are Japan and Antarctica.

Asked about things she hates about travel, Jacqueline said: �Sometimes, I dislike airports, the immigration and the security process. It�s a big mess and is irritating.�
