Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who is gearing up to play a street racer in her next film, says she was always fascinated with the world of fast cars and racing.
Titled “Drive”, the movie which also stars Sushant Singh Rajput will be produced by Karan Johar.
The actress says she is a Formula One junkie and as a teenager she used to follow one of the largest sporting events of Middle East – the Bahrain Grand Prix.
“While growing up in Bahrain, I and my friend have done so many car race rallies and we have also won a lot of times. We never missed Formula One races. I love Formula One.
It is exciting to be part of ‘Drive’ as I love this world.
“The film is about fast cars and people behind it and their stories. Tarun Mansukhani is back in action and it has Sushant. It is a fantastic team,” Jacqueline told a news agency.
The actress, however, says the movie has a lot more to offer than just racing cars.
“This is not going to be that crazy like ‘Formula One’.
It’s going to look very different and the story is very thrilling and it’s a film that will keep you glued to your seats. I can’t talk too much about it.” The film is touted to be the first in a new action franchise backed by Dharma Producitons.
Beside films, Jacqueline is also focusing on endorsing a healthy lifestyle. She has recently invested in Rakyan Beverages that makes juices under brand – Raw Pressery.
“This is my first investment. I believe in the company.
It is a lifestyle I advocate. I want to give back to the society as I care for the customers,” she says.
