Dubai: Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez who is currently enjoying rave reviews for her role in the hit film Judwaa 2 will be in the UAE this weekend to launch her juice brand, RAW Pressery. The star will be visiting Lulu Hypermarket in Al Khalidiya (Abu Dhabi) and Al Barsha (Dubai) on October 13 and 14 to launch the product. She spoke to XPRESS on a range of topics ahead of her visit. Excerpts from the interview:
You invested in the juice company RAW Pressery earlier this year after trying its products. What did you like about them?
All offerings from the brand are 100 per cent natural and free of artificial additives such as sugar, preservatives, concentrates and flavours, making it ideal for anyone looking for healthy alternatives in their diet.
Are juices from RAW Pressery safe for children?
Yes absolutely! These juices are rich in antioxidants, low in fat and boost immunity. Kids love our bestselling berry smoothie.
Dubai will be embracing a month-long fitness challenge initiated by the government. Can you share tips from your personal regimen?
Keeping fit is all about figuring out what your body enjoys. Never shy away from trying something new. Eat what your heart desires but always in moderation. Remember to include as much nutrition from greens/veggies and keep yourself hydrated! My favourite exercise is dancing and you will find me experimenting with diverse styles like belly dancing and pole dancing in my latest movies.
Who is your favourite actor?
My all-time favourite actor is Shah Rukh Khan. Even though I have met him so many times I still get star struck every time I see him.
What movies are you working on currently?
I am awaiting the release of Drive with Sushant Singh Rajput and just finished the shoot of Race 3 scheduled for later this year.
You’ve been a fan of Dubai. What according to you is unique about this city?
It’s absolutely limitless. It has something for everyone. This is what keeps me coming back to the city year after year. I’ve had a different experience every time I’ve come to Dubai.
You get good food, great views, stunning sunsets, warm people and adventures of a lifetime all in one place.
