New Delhi, July 26: With two big budget films "Kick" and "Roy" in her kitty, Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez feels she has finally found a space for herself in Bollywood.

The 28-year-old model-actress, who began her acting career with Sujoy Ghosh's box office bomb "Aladin" in 2009, said being an outsider it was tough for her to make a mark.

"It has been a very gradual process for me as I was a newcomer from Sri Lanka. It took some time for me to penetrate the industry and be accepted. But now I feel that with all the hard work and patience, I have finally found my place," Jacqueline told PTI.

In Sajid Nadiawala's "Kick", Jacqueline is paired opposite superstar Salman Khan and she begins shooting from today. In "Roy", the actress is working with Ranbir Kapoor and Arjun Rampal for the first time.

"I am happy and excited that I am working with some of the biggest actors in the industry. I haven't met Salman before. Ranbir is a gentleman as we have shot some advertisements for our film," she said.

The actress remembers her days of struggle to reach to this point of her career and said she did not get many good roles initially.

"It was very tough for me to be accepted by audience, directors, producers and actors. I was seen as someone who is a foreigner and could not speak the language. I challenged myself and proved everyone wrong."

Jacqueline was recently seen in an item number in Prabhudeva's "Ramaiya Vastavaiya".

The Bollywood diva is the brand ambassador for the India Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW) and also walked the ramp as a modern day bride for designer Jyotsna Tiwari last evening.
