Former Miss Sri Lanka and Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been offered a lead role in a British film, The Definition of Fear.

The ‘Kick’ star revealed that the film’s makers approached her from London.

“They were keen to sign me. The offer came from them, without me taking any initiative. It came as a shock to me. They have offered me the lead role. I am excited to work with Simpson, who has directed actors like Al Pacino and Penelope Cruz,” she said.

Revealing details of the film, she said: “It will be shot abroad and will be a completely new experience for me. We start shooting this month. I will have three female co-stars and I play a psychology student,”

The actress added that her role in the Salman Khan blockbuster Kick was a factor in raising her profile in the mainstream, India Times reports.

“Indian films get so much recognition in the international market. I think the success of my last release has made me visible at the international level,” she said.

Fernandez is set to play a double role in Roy, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Arjun Rampal.
