Ac­tor Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez (left) played the dam­sel in distress in the 2016 su­per­hero film A Fly­ing Jatt. Now she wants to take a step for­ward and be a su­per­hero her­self. She wishes to gain pow­ers of Cap­tain Planet and change the en­vi­ron­ment for the bet­ter. “If I could be a su­per­hero, I would love to be Cap­tain Planet. He is one su­per­hero I have grown up watch­ing and al­ways loved the fact that with ev­ery­thing he did, he was mak­ing the en­vi­ron­ment safer, greener and cleaner space,” says Jac­que­line.

Along with be­ing en­vi­ro­ment-con­scious, the ac­tor is also a fit­ness freak. About the se­cret to her svelte fig­ure, “I do a lot of ex­er­cises. It’s ei­ther pi­lates or yoga or even cardio that cov­ers most my work­out rou­tine,” says the ac­tor, who is pre­par­ing for her role in the se­quel to Jud­waa, where she plays Varun Dhawan’s love in­ter­est.

And is there any sin­ful food habit she has that she wants to get rid of ? “I have al­ways been a con­scious eater and don’t re­ally in­dulge in any­thing out­side my diet,” adds the ac­tor, who has done films such as Dishoom (2016), Kick (2014), and Roy (2015). While many go green with envy on see­ing her fig­ure, she does have some favourites within the film in­dus­try. Talk­ing about who has an hour­glass fig­ure in Bollywood, she shares, “I think Deepika Padukone and Ka­t­rina Kaif have the best bod­ies in the in­dus­try to­day.”
