The new crop of actors in Bollywood is known for speaking their mind, and Banjo girl Nargis Fakhri is no different. The American model-actor feels blessed to have worked in the Hindi film industry for a good five years despite limited talent.
In an interview to the Times of India, Nargis said, “Sure, I’d like to try but only up to a point. I have been blessed to have made it this far here with no skills, no knowledge, no family, no friends and without sacrificing my values and morals.”
Nargis, who made her acting debut in the 2011 romantic drama Rockstar, goes on to say that she, on her own, wouldn’t “ever have come here” to try.
“I’d have chosen another career. And I’d do that even now whenever I move back home because there’s no need to pigeonhole your career in a cramped space. Don’t be surprised if you find me doing some charity work in another country. It’ll be far more satisfying.”
She was asked “Would you like to do more Hollywood films now?”
Answering another question, this time about her sickness, she said, “It’s not anyone’s business to know. When you are sick, you are sick. Period.”
New York-born Nargis, 36, also talked about her rumoured relationship with Uday Chopra. “Yeah, I see that. But that’s cool. I guess they have nothing better to do. But that way, I make headlines, which means I am relevant. I’m totally cool with that.”
Banjo, starring Nargis, who is of Pakistani-Czech ethnicity, opposite Riteish Deshmukh, will hit the screens this Friday.
