Nargis Fakhri, who is a diehard fitness enthusiast, has been keen on learning Muay Thai for a while now.

Recently, she found the time to attend a 12-day martial arts boot camp in Phuket, Thailand. A source close to the actor says, "Nargis has wanted to learn Muay Thai for a while, so when she had some time free amidst her brand shoots, film meetings and appearances, she decided to go ahead with the trip. During the boot camp, she was completely disconnected from everyone for 12 days. She learnt the core of the martial arts form."

We have heard that Nargis’s keenness to learn Muay Thai may also be part of her preparation of a new film (nothing has been announced yet). Not denying this rumour, the source adds, "There could be a film in the pipeline where she will showcase her flair for action, and perform a few stunts herself."

Interestingly, the actor has already shot some stunt sequences as part of an upcoming Hollywood film, co-starring Jude Law, Jason Statham and Melissa McCarthy.
