Mumbai : Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez escaped unhurt after her car was hit by an autorickshaw allegedly driven by a drunk driver at Bandra here, officials said. The incident took place at Carter Road late on Friday.
The 32-year-actress was returning home around 2.45 am from actor Salman Khan’s Galaxy Apartments residence after attending a party to celebrate the upcoming film “Race 3”. Her car suffered minor damage but she did not suffer any injury.
Speaking to a website, she said, “Yes, it did take place. The rickshaw driver was drunk. We will soon give out an official statement. We are fine. Police came and sorted it out.”
According to some onlookers, the auto-driver along with a couple of others seemed to be drunk. They were trying to get close to the actor’s vehicle when they lost control and slammed into her car.
Jacqueline will don an action-packed character in the film and has been practising Mixed Martial Arts for two hours every day to enact the scenes perfectly. Directed by Remo D’Souza, “Race 3” features Salman, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Jacqueline, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem. The trailer of Race 3 will be out on May 15 and the film will hit the big screen in Eid 2018.
