Jacqueline, Akshay Kumar get dizzy for a cause

Jacqueline Fernandez and Akshay Kumar took the #DizzyGoals challenge for the Global Goals campaign. Watch the videos!

Jacqueline Fernandez became the first Asian woman to take the #DizzyGoals challenge for the Global Goals campaign. Seen as her usual chirpy self, raring to take the Dizzy Goals challenge, Jacqueline did this on the sets of Houseful 3 in the UK coastal town of Dorset, with Bollywood’s star Akshay Kumar cheering her on!  The talented Jacqueline added another feather in her cap when she scored a goal. Earlier, Akshay Kumar too took the challenge in Dorset, leaving India’s undisputed action hero no less dizzy! This was his second time and, incidentally, Akshay is the first Indian to take the challenge.

The Global Goals are a series of ambitious targets to end extreme poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030 and will be agreed by 193 world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly. Using the connection of ‘goals’, the dizzy goals challenge invites personalities and the public to run around a ball until they’re dizzy and then to try score a goal.

Some of the world’s leading footballers were challenged to shoot a dizzy penalty. Real Madrid FC and Wales national football team’s Mid-fielder Gareth Bale took the first dizzy penalty challenge for The Global Goals. He was followed by former footballer Gary Lineker OBE, former England striker Alan Shearer OBE and Liverpool Football Club players Jordon Ibe and Joe Gomez.
