Nargis Fakhri felt ‘Unsafe’ in Bollywood due to ‘Unprofessionalism’!
The starlet has spoken about her early days of work at Bollywood in a recent interview.
American national grabbed her first Bollywood role in the 2011 romantic drama Rockstar, for which she was nominated for Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.
Nargis in a recent interview with ETimes said that it was way too difficult to make that kind of effort and then feel unsafe sometimes.
The Rockstar actor said, “There are so many stories. It was extremely difficult and I faced many obstacles. Thank goodness for my agency who helped me navigate things. Besides intense workshops in Hindi and dance classes and tons of shoots and meetings, there were also times I encountered humans that behave in unprofessional ways. That made it difficult to feel safe at times.”
Nargis is soon going to be back in Bollywood after taking a break during the pandemic, with a new film starring along Anupam Kher and Neena Gupta.
Nargis for the first time also opened up about dating Uday Chopra for five years in the same interview.
Calling him a ‘beautiful soul’, she said that she should have ‘shouted from the roof top’ during their relationship because he was a really wonderful person.
Nargis was quoted as saying, “Uday and I dated for 5 years and he was the most beautiful human I met in India. I never have said this to the press as people told me to keep my relationship quiet, but I regret that because I should have shouted from the mountain tops that I was with such a beautiful soul.”
Nargis said that sometimes, the stars that the people idolize are not worth all the love but sometimes, you meet really good people in the industry.
“The internet and social media are very fake and the people out there won’t know what the truth is. Most often, we idolize certain people who are actually bad behind closed doors,” she said.
