Mumbai: Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez, who has established a career as a Bollywood actress, says that coming from a different country and culture, her journey in the Indian film industry reshaped her world completely.
The actress, who has been appointed the face of denim brand Lee, was present here on Wednesday to launch a new range ‘Body Optix’, especially designed for Indian women.
Asked about how she relates to the brand as an individual, Jacqueline cited the reference of her journey in Bollywood and said: “It was not easy for me to set my path here (in Mumbai) as I come from a different country and culture. I still can remember how nervous I was when I landed in the city for the first time and was looking for a cab to reach my venue.”
“From there, to the point where I have arrived today, has changed and reshaped my life completely. That is what I associate the most with the brand Lee Jeans as it also talks about ‘reshaping the world’.”
Jacqueline, who is also known for her fashion statement, she loves wearing jeans.
“I am very adventurous and playful and I love wearing jeans as it is not only a comfort wear but also my second skin. I don’t see any difference (of gender) when it comes to comfort… So, it’s very apt.”
The event also saw participation from Steve Zades, Vice President of VF Corporation and Sharad Wali, General Manager, Lee India.
