Nargis has earlier talked about her weakness and told DNA in an interview in 2016, “Stage fright, which I have… I know I seem confident and outgoing, but it’s a lie. It’s a mask I have to put on before facing the world. On stage, I get very nervous, I sweat, have palpitations, diarrhoea and have even vomited a few times, I can’t breathe. Someday I will get over it… Who knows?”
“Lot of people made fun of me when I was growing up in New York, so I developed a sense of humour. Kids are mean when they are young. I was chubby then and couldn’t dance well, so everyone made fun of me. Now I can tell people ‘Look at me! I can dance! Screw everyone,” she added.
Nargis Fakhri was last seen in a horror film called Amavas.
