Actor Nargis Fakhri is eagerly waiting for the release of Hollywood actor Jessica Chastian’s next film, Miss Sloan. The actor who has always been attracted to women-centric films, says: “I’ve always liked Jessica Chastain’s work and the content she stands for.”

“It’s great to see women performers push the ante like Jessica and help carve a solid and contemporary image of women in powerful roles,” adds the actor who made her Hollywood debut with Spy (2015).

Fakhri, who has been part of Bollywood films such as Rockstar (2011) and Madras Café (2013), says: “I’m hoping Jessica earns an Oscar nomination yet again for this one.” Chastain had won an Academy award for her performance in Zero Dark Thirty (2012).

“Miss Sloane is a tale of a strong and strategic woman playing the game with the big dogs, using all it takes to win,” Fakhri explains.
