Nargis Fakhri did not have an easy time in Bollywood and during a recent interview Nargis Fakhri makes some shocking confessions like never before.
Nargis made her debut with Rockstar opposite Ranbir Kapoor and she has done a number of movies like Madras Cafe, Main Tera Hero, Azhar, Housefull 3 and Banjo. But it was not as easy as it seems for her. In a recent interview with Bombay Times, Nargis Fakhri makes some shocking confessions like never before.
Here they are-
1. About her love for travelling-
“I LOVE TRAVELLING. I TRAVELLED EVEN WHEN I DIDN’T HAVE MONEY. I ATE NOODLES TO SAVE UP A TICKET AND A HOSTEL. GIRLS USUALLY SPEND ON SHOES MAKE-UP, JEWELLERY, CLOTHES, PARTYING AND DRINKS. I DON’T SPEND ON ANYTHING. I SAVE UP FOR TRAVELLING. EVEN WHEN I WASN’T IN THIS PROFESSION, I DID THAT. EXPERIENCES ARE FAR MORE VALUABLE THAN SHOES.”
2. About her name being linked to Uday Chopra-
“I GUESS THE MEDIA HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO. BUT THAT WAY, I MAKE HEADLINES, WHICH MEANS I AM RELEVANT. I’M TOTALLY COOL WITH THAT.”
3. About being stereotyped-
“I’VE BEEN LIMITED BY BOLLYWOOD BECAUSE I AM NOT FLUENT IN HINDI. THEY CAN’T CAST ME AS A VILLAGE GIRL. THAT WOULD TAKE A LOT OF TRAINING. WITHOUT KNOWING THE LANGUAGE, IT’S DIFFICULT TO BECOME THE BEST. IN ACTING, IT’S ACTION AND REACTION. HINDI IS NOT MY LANGUAGE. IT WILL ALWAYS BE A STRUGGLE. IF I EVER HAVE A CHANCE TO GET A ROLE TO GET OUT OF THAT PIGEONHOLE THAT THEY’VE PUT ME INTO, I’D GET A TRAINER AND WORK HARD ON IT.”
4. About her friends in the Town-
“THE PEOPLE I WORKED WITH WERE NICE. PEOPLE SAY HELLO TO ME AT PARTIES. BUT I DON’T HAVE ANYTHING TO CONVERSE WITH THEM. THEY ONLY TALK ABOUT MOVIES. I DON’T EVEN WATCH MY OWN. SO, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO TALK ABOUT. ALSO, I DON’T KNOW MOST PEOPLE. I DON’T REMEMBER NAMES. AND BECAUSE I USUALLY SLEEP EARLY, I’M SLEEPY AT THE PARTIES, TOO.”
5. About her journey so far-
“I HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO HAVE MADE IT THIS FAR HERE WITH NO SKILLS, NO KNOWLEDGE, NO FAMILY, NO FRIENDS AND WITHOUT SACRIFICING MY VALUES AND MORALS. ON MY OWN, I WOULDN’T EVER HAVE COME HERE TO TRY. I’D HAVE CHOSEN ANOTHER CAREER. AND I’D DO THAT EVEN NOW WHENEVER I MOVE BACK HOME BECAUSE THERE’S NO NEED TO PIGEONHOLE YOUR CAREER IN A CRAMPED SPACE. DON’T BE SURPRISED IF YOU FIND ME DOING SOME CHARITY WORK IN ANOTHER COUNTRY. IT’LL BE FAR MORE SATISFYING.”
