Mumbai: Pop sensation Justin Bieber is all set to visit India this summer as a part of the Purpose tour to enthral his fans at a gala event scheduled to be held at the DY Patil Stadium here on May 10. And the diva who is all set to play host to him is none other than Jacqueline Fernandez.

The Bollywood actor will reportedly take Bieber to the Gateway Of India, Iskon Temple, Colaba Causeway and also on auto ride through the streets of Bandra apart from a tour of Film City.

"I am a huge fan of Bieber and I already have quite a few things I've thought of that would make his visit multi-dimensional. While he's in India I'd love to take him around and give him a taste of all things desi and be his tour guide," Jacqueline said in a statement.

The actress also plans to curate a special menu comprising of Maharashtrian, South Indian and Gujarati delicacies at her newly-launched restaurant.

She may also take him to meet underprivileged children at Dharavi slum area.
