Jacqueline Fernandez was so impressed by a visit to Sheikh Zayed Grand mosque in Abu Dhabi that she is making a painting of the iconic site.

Injured in Abu Dhabi

The actress also alluded to a recent injury sustained while playing squash in the capital via an Instagram story. She is wearing an eyepatch, and says that she has decided "never to play squash again and to just stick to painting, because it [squash] can be really dangerous."

Perhaps she was inspired to paint on a recent trip to Louvre Abu Dhabi:

The actress is back in Abu Dhabi to film Race 3, which sees Salman Khan take the lead role as Ranvir Singh, and also stars Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem. It is being directed by Remo D’Souza

On Saturday, Fernandez thanked her fans for their concern in an Instagram video, saying "Thank you all for your 'get well soon' wishes, really means a lot. I did kind of injure my right eye and I have to do an entire climax scene in sunglasses now, so don't be shocked."

Race 3 will open in cinemas on June 16.
