It’s just a year since she made her debut, and yet New York-based model-turned-actor Nargis Fakhri has managed to stay in the news, especially for her link-ups. From apparently being spotted with debut film co-star, actor Ranbir Kapoor at an awards event in Singapore to the speculation on her bonding with industrialist Ness Wadia and actor Shahid Kapoor.
Dismissing the reports as rumours, she thunders, “People enjoy making up stories which have absolutely no truth to it. They are created out of nothing at all. There are times when you get annoyed, but I guess one has to learn to take it with a pinch of salt and let it pass. It’s all part of the learning process. Yes, Ranbir and I are friends. The award ceremony was my first industry get together and I met quite a few people there. It was a great experience. As far as Ness goes, he’s someone who’s just an acquaintance. How the ‘so-called news’ came out? Your guess is as good as mine.”
The actor, who is currently back in the city from Bangkok, says she isn’t too much of a party person. Besides a close few people, she says, she doesn’t interact with a lot of people. “I don’t have too many friends so to speak. I’ve met some nice people whilst I’ve been here. I’m here to learn and concentrate on my work. I have friends all over the world, who I’ve known prior to getting into films. I connect with them of and on whilst I’m here, thank God for Skype and Facebook,” she says.
The actor also confesses to being a homebody, so much so that she goes to bed at 10 pm daily. “Believe it or not, I’m actually one of those people, who falls asleep at 10 pm and wakes up at 7 am, even if there is nothing to do. I’m quite a morning person. So keeping up a partying life is a bit difficult,” says Nargis.
Considered to be one of the sexiest stars in Bollywood, much has been written about the newbie’s lips. Ask her what she thinks of the brouhaha around her lips, and does she consider that her sexiest feature. Brushing aside the attention that her lips apparently seems to attract, Nargis says, “Saying that my sex appeal lies in my lips is hilarious. There is more to me than just a physical attribute.”
