New Delhi, Oct. 27 -- Actor Jacqueline Fernandez, who is in Ottawa, Canada, to shoot for an international film, was stranded in her hotel for two days, after a shooting incident on October 22 put the entire city under lockdown.
Incidentally, the 29-year-old is staying only 30 minutes away from Parliament Hill, the place where the firing took place.
While the lockdown was lifted in many other areas after 11 hours, the actor and her film's crew were made to stay put in their hotel for two days.
Recalling the incident, she tells us, "We were about to start shooting, when we were informed that we can't travel as there had been a shootout in the city. The main gates of the hotel were locked, so no one could go out. We were locked in for two days and kept watching the news to stay updated, and were only hoping that everyone would be safe and no lives were lost."
The actor's family, too, was worried about her safety.
"My family also called to check on me after they saw the news. Our shooting was interrupted for two days, but we have resumed now," says Jacqueline, who was last seen in the film Kick alongside Salman Khan.
