She made her debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Imtiaz Ali’s 2011 hit Rockstar and has been ruling Bollywood ever since with her with her charisma and style. But did you know Nargis Fakhri, who was last seen in Riteish Deshmukh’s Banjo, auditioned for America’s Next Top Model in 2004?
In an old audition video that is going viral on the internet, Nargis is seen fumbling with her words as the video begins. What must have been the dampener was her reply to why she wanted to be a model -- she calls it ‘just a job’ -- obviously leaving the judges unimpressed. The judges, loved her ‘body’ and said she had ‘good DNA’ for a model.
The New York-born model-actor managed to enter the show but was eliminated in the third cycle.
It is interesting to note that the 36-year-old actor has been maintaining that stunning body, diva-like attitude and panache straight from 2004.
In the video, Nargis also says she had participated in the hit reality show (before 2004) and was evicted in the semi-final round.
Nargis has featured in films like Madras Cafe (2013), Main Tera Hero (2014), Spy (2015), Housefull 3 (2016) and Azhar (2016). She also did an item song for the Tamil film Saagasam (2015) with Prashanth.
