Nargis Fakhri has one answer when asked these days about her rumoured link-up with actor Shahid Kapoor. “I wish!” “No, really,” she insists. “I wish my life was as exciting as the media makes it out to be. My life is so boring.”

So, is she not seeing anyone? “I would love to be in a relationship but the fact is that I am single. I start my day at 8am and it usually ends at 11pm, during which I have to attend so many classes. And amid all that I don’t have time for a relationship. I don’t even get time to speak to my mom. But if and when I am seeing someone, I won’t hide it,” says the 32-year-old model-actor, on a visit to Delhi to cheer for Delhi Daredevils at an IPL cricket match.

She says the popularity of cricket fascinates her and she wanted to have a first-hand experience about the ‘cricket-craze’ she’s heard so much about.

“In India, Bollywood and cricket are the two biggest obsessions. I have never seen a live cricket match, as back home in the US, we don’t have cricket, so I wanted to be part of the craze that cricket has in India. I don’t know much about cricket, but my friends do tell me about it, so I am here to experience the thrill.”


Though there are reports that after the success of her debut film, Rockstar, in 2011, Fakhri, a New York-based model, born to a Pakistani father and a Czech mother, has signed her second film, Khiladi 786, opposite Akshay Kumar, but won’t reveal anything. “I can’t confirm anything. Wait and watch,” is all she says.

Nargis Fakhri on dating Shahid I wish my life was as exciting as the media makes it out to be. The fact is, I’m single on signing a film I can’t confirm anything (about signing Khiladi 786 opposite Akshay). Just wait and watch.
