Nargis Fakhri says she loved the experience of shooting for Madras Cafe. Nargis Fakhri plays a war journalist in her upcoming film Madras Cafe, and says it was wonderful to learn about the real women who risk their lives on war fronts to get truth across to people.

"My experience of working on Madras Cafe was intense and interesting, like doing a lot of background work on what these women do... I think most of us watch the news and we don't really care what's going on in the world," the 33-year-old said here Friday at the unveiling of the cover of magazine Hi! Blitz featuring her.

"It was great for me to do so much research on certain events that happened...As well as learning about these amazing women that are out in the field, in a war zone risking their life to get truth out to us," she added.

Nargis believes Madras Cafe is very different from typical Bollywood fare. "It was a wonderful experience where I play a journalist, an on-field war correspondent. This film is very different from typical Hindi films. I am hoping you all will go out and see it," she said.

Directed by Shoojit Sircar, Madras Cafe has been co-produced by John Abraham, who features in the lead in the film.
