Jacqueline Fernandez tells us how Salman Khan's Kick changed Bollywood for her

Jacqueline Fernandez can be touted as the busiest female Bollywood actor this year with back-to-back films like Housefull 3, Dishoom and now, A Flying Jatt, a Remo D'Souza directorial. The actor even did a music video -- GF BF with Sooraj Pancholi in between and is now judging popular dance reality show -- Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.

However, the actor says that things weren't this easy for her when she entered the industry. In a recent interview promoting A Flying Jatt, Jacqueline revealed how Sajid Nadiadwala's Kick did wonders to her confidence levels, something she felt was lacking earlier.

"Post Kick things have changed. Since Kick, it has been great work (for me) and it has been good. The offers have been great too. I am hoping I just keep growing."

"I think what went wrong before Kick was... I feel I didn't have any confidence before Kick. That was the only thing which went wrong. When I look back, I feel I didn't have the confidence back then," she added.

Kick, starring Salman Khan and Fernandez, released in 2014 to a great reception at the Box Office.

In the meantime, the Sri Lankan beauty has been enjoying her tryst with commercial cinema in Bollywood.

"It is extremely exciting. When you are a part of big commercial films, it's an amazing feeling. Having back-to-back releases feels great. It is taxing as well. You have to be on it, be aware, be focussed... And it can get very taxing."

Jacqueline was recently seen in Housefull 3 and Dishoom and now she is busy with promotions of her upcoming entertainer A Flying Jatt which also stars Tiger Shroff.
