Last month, Jacqueline Fernandez was seen in a new music video of the popular Spice Girls track, Wannabe. The video was made to highlight issues of gender inequality faced by women across the world. It was an initiative by the United Nations’ Global Goal campaign. The Bollywood actor says working on the video was a fun experience.
“It is great to be part of innovative ways of helping out. As celebrities, one of the things we can do is create awareness. We have all grown up listening to songs by Spice Girls. It was amazing to get a chance to spread awareness about violence against women in this way,” she says.

Jacqueline is also an animal lover. Talking about the increasing instances of cruelty to pets and stray animals, the actor says, “The accused should get harsh punishments. Otherwise this will never stop, and they will keep getting away with it. If this is not dealt with soon, it could get out of hand.”
Currently, Jacqueline is busy promoting her upcoming film, A Flying Jatt, with Tiger Shroff. Even though she has worked with stars such as Salman Khan in Kick (2014) and Akshay Kumar in Brothers (2015), she says she didn’t find working with the younger lot of actors in her new films (she worked with Varun Dhawan in the recently released film Dishoom) any different.
“Salman and Akshay have the same energy levels as Varun and Tiger. I find that amazing. They have spent around 25 years in the industry, as opposed to others who have just started their careers. Yet, all of them share the same energy and passion towards their work. That, for me, is commendable,” she adds.
