This actress of Sri Lankan descent shot to fame as the beautiful face of the movie Aladin and went on to star in successful films like Housefull 2 and Murder 2. Born to a Sri Lankan father and a Malaysian-Canadian mother, Jacqueline is the youngest of four siblings. She spent her early childhood in Sri Lanka and later moved to Bahrain. She stepped into the television at the young age of 14, when she started hosting shows. After completing her graduation in mass communication from Australia, she moved to Sri Lanka and became a TV host. Soon enough, she received modeling assignments and was crowned Miss Sri Lanka in 2006. She also starred in a music video in Sri Lanka. Jacqueline started her career in Bollywood movies with a fantasy movie called Aladin opposite Ritesh Deshmukh in 2009. She managed to get mixed reviews on her performance. She has won several awards including Best Female Debut by the International Indian Film Academy Awards for her role in Aladin. She then appeared in Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai (2010) opposite Ritesh again. She performed in the song Dhanno in Sajid Khan’s Housefull (2010) and was part of the sequel Housefull 2 (2012).

In 2014, she starred alongside Salman Khan in the blockbuster film Kick. The following year, she acted in Roy, alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Arjun Rampal but the movie didn’t fare well at the box office.
