Many Bollywood actors travel abroad for international shoots. But because of their hectic schedules, it becomes difficult for most celebrities to explore the tourist attractions of the countries they visit.
Nargis Fakhri, however, makes it a point to do some sightseeing along with her shoots. The actor likes to travel and explore new places. She recently visited London, UK, and Greece, and posted some interesting pictures from her trip on Instagram.
Nargis says it was author Daniel Defoe’s 1719 novel, Robinson Crusoe, that inspired her to travel since a very young age. The book is a travelogue based on true incidents. “Growing up, when I would go to the public library in New York, USA, to catch up on my reading, I would find myself attracted to the genre of castaway novels and travelogues,” Nargis says.
The novel has now been adapted into a movie, which will release this year. Nargis adds, “Reading about a tropical island filled with animals, and encountering cannibals, captives and mutineers was exciting. Since that day until now, I continue to be intrigued by the idea of exploring the world and experiencing all that it has to offer. ”
