Actress Nargis Fakhri made her Bollywood debut in 2011 with Imtiaz Ali's romantic drama 'Rockstar' opposite Ranbir Kapoor. The movie got her fame overnight but dating rumours also followed. It was reported that Nargis was dating her co-stars Ranbir and Shahid Kapoor. Nargis and Shahid featured in the song 'Dhating Naach' in the film 'Phata Poster Nikhla Hero'.
In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, when Nargis was asked about those rumours, she said, “It used to drive me insane. One time there was an article that said I moved into Shahid Kapoor's apartment. I wish I had saved these articles…and that my mom came down to visit and meet him. And I had people messaging, ‘Oh, your mom is in town?' What the hell, my mom never even came here. So, I had to get used to all of that''.
She also recalled another incident as she said, “A reporter came up to me and said, ‘Oh, how does it feel to be enjoying the B-town stars' and she said it in a way like she was insinuating something. They were writing so many stories about different people. I don't even know anyone yet. I just told her, ‘Well, I am waiting for you to turn me into a lesbian' and that was the headline; I got into trouble. I was being sarcastic. But her face dropped and she walked away''. Nargis added, “Those were interesting times.”
The actress also revealed that she was stressed post the release of 'Rockstar'. She said that the fame was very weird and added, ''I was so stressed I didn't know my shoulders were touching my ears…My body was so stressed out but I was trying to go through life. It was such a big movie. I didn't know anything; I was very naive.”
Apart from 'Rockstar', Fakhri was also seen in 'Madras Cafe', 'Azhar', 'Main Tera Hero', and 'Housefull 3'. She will be seen in the web series 'Tatlubaaz'.
