Nargis Fakhri, who made her Bollywood debut with mixed reviews for her movie ‘Rockstar’, had recently signed her second Bollywood movie after 6 months from release of her debut. She will next be seen opposite Akshay Kumar in ‘Khiladi 786’.
The actress said that she was excited to be a part of ‘Khiladi 786’ as the movie was very different from ‘Rockstar’.
“‘Khiladi 786’ is a comedy, and it’s a genre I’ve really been really waiting to experiment with. I’m very excited because it’s completely different from the role I played in ‘Rockstar’. I’m doing two more films with them, but I’m not allowed to talk about those yet,” she said to a daily.
The actress who moved from New York to Mumbai few years ago has been continuing her dictation and dance classes, which she started in preparation of her movie ‘Rockstar’.
“It’s only been a short while since I’ve been in India, but a lot of things have improved. I’m on my way, and as long as I’m diligent, I know I will get better. It’s a different kind of challenge and I’m getting to learn something new,” she said.
Recently Nargis Fakhri has been in news more for her personal life and links up with Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor than her professional life. The actress said that she has learnt to accept rumors and just smile.
“It doesn’t bother me anymore. Gossip is a part of my profession. I personally find it weird, but I understand where it is coming from. It’s the paparazzi culture all around the world,” she said.
“Everything I’ve been reading about myself crosses the line. It’s ridiculous, boring and untrue. I’ve decided that I should just smile and wave at everyone instead of denying rumors,” she concluded.
'Khiladi 786' will be directed by Rohit Shetty's assistant Ashish R Mohan.
The movie also stars Himesh Reshmiya, who is also writing and providing music score for the film. The movie stars Paresh Rawal as Himesh Reshmiya’s dad.
Eros International will present the film in association with Himesh's company HR Musik and Akshay's banner Hari Om Entertainment.
