Nargis Fakhri believes hard work is important than infamy



Nargis Fakhri, Bollywood star, considers that there is really no any shortcut to get fame and success. The Bollywood gorgeous actress still believes, when scandals have become part of show business, that the “romantic notion that skill and hard work are more important than notoriety.”

It was inquired from her that whether the Hindi film industry pays more attention to actors who have performed in Hollywood, Nargis replied in the statement that it “doesn’t ring true” for her. The actress further added that “I came here with no background or Hollywood credits so it certainly doesn’t ring true for me. I think occasionally, fame and popularity can garner more attention for individuals or films,” she continued by saying that “But as a person who believes in her craft, I like the romantic notion that skill and hard work are more important that notoriety. As the money-focused industry that Bollywood is, I also appreciate that there is a balance and we’re all part of that.”

More than the past some years, well-known Bollywood names such as Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan Khan have moved out to foreign shores, breaking stereotypical beliefs vis-à-vis Indians with the roles they opt. Nargis, though, who was born to a multi-cultural family and grown up in New York, considers that the progress to breakdown stereotypes for all the time begins with one person. The 36 year old star stated as, “I am so proud of Priyanka to be a shining instance of Bollywood’s talent and merit,” she added, “Stereotyping of any race or culture is narrow-minded and I can’t wait to help break the shackles.”

Nargis started modeling in 2005 and after shining in the world of glamour she made her Bollywood debut in 2011’s hit Rockstar. After that she did a variety of movies such as Mein Tera Hero and Madras Café. She was also included in the cast of 2015 Hollywood action-comedy Spy. In future Nargis will appear opposite with Riteish Deshmukh in Banjo and Housefull 3
