American model-turned-actress Nargis Fakhri, whose voice in her debut film Rockstar was dubbed due to her poor Hindi diction, is busy working on the language and reveals that finally she can read and write a bit of Hindi.

"Everything takes time, it doesn't happen like this. I was plucked out of the sky and put here. So, it's taking time but it's going well," she said Monday at the launch of the Gaja Store.

"I am really happy, I am reading and writing, which is great. So at least when I can read I am like, 'Yes, I can read'," she added.

The 32-year-old has one film in hand, Khiladi 786 opposite Akshay Kumar. The film also stars Paresh Rawal. Meanwhile, she is reading scripts and may zero in on something soon.

"I have been doing a lot of events, brands and magazines and I have also been reading a lot of scripts and I have taken my time. Now I have found something I really love. So it's all coming along. It's patience. If I want to do it, I'll do it. If I don't want to do it, I will not do it," said Nargis.
