Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez says she has a keen interest to learn the “beautiful” Urdu language.
“I have a genuine interest to learn Urdu, a language that sounds so beautiful. At times, I read something and if I find any word that sounds interesting, I note it down, learn it and try to incorporate it in my conversation.
“In fact, once I learn the language, I want to read books in that language… It’s a gradual process, but I want to learn everything slowly,” Jacqueline told IANS in an interview
Jacqueline was working on Salman Khan-starrer Kick when it was reported that there was a coach on board to give her Urdu lessons.
She has Sri Lankan roots, grew up in Bahrain before settling for a career in Bollywood. She said that she has embraced everything that Mumbai has to offer, and enjoys engaging in outdoor activities.
“Whenever I get time, I go for horse riding… I love that. I also play the piano, love cooking and reading books. I am not a video game person,” said Jacqueline.
