Jacqueline Fernandez

Born on August 11, 1985 Jacqueline Fernandez is a former model and winner of the Miss Sri Lanka Universe pageant in 2006.  When she was on a modeling assignment in India she received an offer to join the film industry. Her debut film was 2009’s fantasy drama Aladinwhich turned out to be a commercial failure.
