The perpetually excited and bubbly Jacqueline Fernandez turns 32 today. To celebrate her birthday, she has flown off to Japan. One can understand from her Instagram stories that she is having a gala time in Tokyo. Her co-star and good friend Sidharth Malhotra gifted her a lovely bouquet with the words ‘Happy Birthday Jacqueline’ embossed on every single rose. Now, who wouldn’t wish for a friend like Sidharth!

The Sri Lankan actress who debuted in Aladdin opposite Riteish Deshmukh has ever since been climbing the ladder of success. And there’s no stopping her. She came to the spotlight with Murder 2 and the Salman Khan starer Kick. The actress turns 32 years today and we can’t stop gushing about this bubbly girl of Bollywood, who has won our hearts! Happy Birthday, Jacqueline!

The Sri Lankan beauty is only 8 years old into the industry and she has already carved a niche for herself. From representing her country Sri Lanka at the Miss Universe pageant 2006 to being a busy Bollywood A-lister, she has come along way. She has some big films like A Gentleman, Judwaa 2 and Drive in her kitty. The movie Drive takes inspiration from her real life and is produced by Karan Johar.

Sonam Kapoor and Jacqueline are best friends forever

It has been 5 years that ‘Jack’ and ‘Sones’ (Yes! that what they call each other) have been best friends. And they haven’t done a single film together. Their friendship grew on the sets of Race 2 where Jacqueline worked with Sonam’s Father Anil Kapoor.

Their love for each other will give you some serious friendship goals! In B-town, where BFFs don’t last long, they have proved otherwise. They hang out together when they are not shooting and go out for dinners. Whenever Jacqueline is having a wardrobe malfunction, Sonam looks takes care of her. They share an enviable camaraderie.

Her thoughts on marriage

Love is what matters to her the most. She wants someone who will be there with her through thick and thin.“Marriage does figure in my life, as I do want to have children. But I could also consider having children without getting married. The primary thing is having a good father, a partner who could be there with me through that journey.”

Her fitness regime

Jacqueline says when it comes to her skin, she likes to experiment with home remedies.“Take care of yourself by eating right, sleeping right, and exercising regularly! These are the only rules I swear by. If you follow this religiously and use the right products, your skin and hair will thank you.”

“When buying beauty products, I always check the ingredients. The product should be sourced from natural ingredients. It should not have been tested on animals, as I am against animal testing, and it should be soft on the skin.”

Pole dancing and yoga always helps!

“Yoga disciplines both the mind and the souls and not just your body. It helps me in having a constant positive outlook in life. I would love my family to adopt this form of fitness as well.”

She learned pole dancing for the song Chandralekha from her upcoming movie A Gentleman. And now it has become part of her fitness regime as well. “Not only did I learn this amazing dance form but it’s also become a part of my fitness regime now. It’s helped me to improve my upper body strength and it’s fun to do and we got to put it in the song too!”
