Jacqueline Fernandez

Actress Jacqueline Fernandez has completed shooting for Reload opposite Siddharth Malhotra and has stepped into the shoot for Dharma Productions’ upcoming, Drive, after which she will start Judwaa opposite Varun Dhawan. Despite a hectic schedule, she is following the 40-day tradition of lent. It is the 40-day period before Easter, excluding Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. The actress is a firm believer of pondering over the virtue of values throughout the lenten period and her lenten observations have included giving up on sugar, sweets, dairy, etc.

Jacqueline shares, “I believe lent is a time to introspect, pray and seek blessings. Lent teaches you to give up what you cherish the most, to be able to grow as a person. I feel, rather than giving up on something it is important to practise the values weaved into us and make sure we follow it to the tee, as it is a season for self-examination and to become more mindful, more penitent and more reflective. Every year I give up on something and this year I would be giving up on anything indulgent like sugar, sweets, dairy.”

Jacqueline is known to celebrate Christmas on a grand scale each year, however very few people are aware that the actress also observes lent every year. Despite being in a hectic schedule for Drive, the actress is observing lent.
