I always feel I don’t belong here in Bollywood: Nargis Fakhri

Nargis Fakhri is currently on a break in the US. Recently, her spokesperson issued a statement, which revealed that the actor has suffered “multiple injuries – torn hamstring, anterior knee ligament thinning and mild socket dislocation, along with burning of the stomach lining due to lead and arsenic poisoning”. Hence, to address her medical issues and to recuperate, Nargis decided to take a break from work. However, the 36-year-old will soon be back in town, as she has two films lined up — one with Ritiesh Deshmukh, and the other with Varun Dhawan.


The actor says she has a special connection with Varun, with whom she had worked on Main Tera Hero (2014). “If I had worked with someone in the US, and I knew that that person is new, I would try my best to make him or her comfortable. That didn’t happen here with me. But Varun is such a nice person. He never hesitated in checking on me, and saying hello every now and then. He also regularly invites me to get-togethers etc,” says Nargis.

In fact, the actor feels that she probably doesn’t belong in Bollywood. “I always feel I don’t fit in…I don’t know if there are more people like me here, but I feel that I don’t belong here,” adds Nargis.

Meanwhile, the actor feels she has come a long way from her Rockstar (2011) days, and says it is your passion that drives you to do what you want. “Everyone is talented. If I can make it big here (in Bollywood), than anyone can do anything. Not that you will become successful overnight, buy you need to keep trying,” says Nargis.
