Jacqueline Fernandez may have got a lot of praise for her dancing moves in songs like 'Jumme Ki Raat' and 'Chitiya Kalaiyan,' but the actress says there was a time when she was 'shouted at' for not being good.

Jacqueline says she worked hard to improve herself as a dancer and got better with time. When asked if she was always a good dancer, the Dishoom star told PTI, "No, my God, never. I was screamed at, shouted at and made fun of when I did my first movie by certain choreographers I can't name. It was a very important lesson because it basically kind of woke me up."

Post that the 30-year-old actress started training in dance so as to not hold back a film. "It was then that I started training in dance because I didn't want to disappoint and hold a movie back anyway with my 'not upto the mark' dancing. I worked on that and I grew on to love it. I wish I could honestly invest more time on it on training because it is very therapeutic."

Jacqueline will now be seen as a judge on the season nine of dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa". The "Kick" actress says when the show was offered to her, she took her time to think as she found herself to be an "unconventional" choice to be a judge. "I took a little bit of time to think about it because I thought it was quite an unconventional choice to have me as a judge. I didn't know if I was prepared enough to take something like that on,"
