Jacqueline Fernandez recently opened up about the hard work that goes behind being a social influencer and how her decade-long journey in Bollywood has been so far. According to her, artists have a lot of responsibility to bear on their shoulders. Speaking about the baggage that comes with fame, Jacqueline Fernandez said, "It has been such a life lesson and a blessing. I’m humbled. Going back to yesteryear to my early beginnings and where I am today, I’m so grateful to all the people involved in this journey of mine. Even though I’ve been a part of the film industry for a decade, I’ve never actually studied acting and it wasn’t something I could learn in a classroom,” she said in a recent interview.
“It has been quite a ride so far and has definitely shaped me into a stronger person. I’ve learned that hard work, patience and perseverance bring you a long way,” continued Jacqueline. She feels that when one tries out different things, not everything will turn out as expected and it’s important to not give up. Speaking about her mantra, she added, “I’d like to quote Winston Churchill: Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. I think one should sing, dance, laugh and never ever give up on that!"
While social media trolls did get to the best of Jacqueline initially, she has learnt to handle the trolls and criticism in a healthy way. "Social media trolls are best to handle with a sense of humour and film critics, with an open mind to constructive criticism. I would rather not take up the daunting task of dealing with the allegations, controversies and offending anyone. I don’t take trolls or the people creating memes, seriously. Things can get misconstrued over social media. Certain things that we say or talk about are sensitive and we need to be very cautious,” Jacqueline concluded.
