Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who was born and raised in Bahrain, is currently in Dubai with her family. The former Miss Universe Sri Lanka posted a photo of herself on Instagram yesterday (December 29), with the caption "Dubai here I come!!".

Her Instagram story, which goes out to her 24.1 million followers, shows her first stop in the UAE was the Dubai Frame, followed by a meal at Greek restaurant Opa Dubai. She then took a trip – looking very glamorous in a bright pink outfit – to the Miu Miu store in Dubai Mall. She then posted wearing a striking red suit at Harvey Nichols in Mall of the Emirates, tagging the Dubai Shopping Festival, saying she will be in the store from 8.30pm on December 30, "so see you there!".

Finally, she also gave us an enthusiastic sneak peek at the gorgeous grounds of the hotel she's staying in – the Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai on the Palm Jumeirah.

This year, Fernandez starred in Salman Khan's production Race 3, which was filmed in nine locations in Abu Dhabi over 23 days in March and April. During the trip, the 33-year-old sustained a minor eye injury which she later revealed had done permanent damage.

Before her trip to Dubai, she attended two birthday bashes – of Anil Kapoor on Christmas eve and Salman on December 27.

Her next role is in the Bollywood remake of Drive, the 2011 Ryan Gosling film of the same name, which is slated for a 2019 release. It was postponed from the originally planned December 2018 launch date due to re-shoots.
