In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, actress Nargis Fakhri who gained popularity through her debut in Imtiaz Ali’s film “Rockstar” discusses how she started in the film industry and dealt with dating rumors and fame while being interviewed.
However, the rumors affected Nargis deeply, despite being Ranbir’s co-star in ‘Rockstar’ or featuring alongside Shahid in ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’. On one occasion, false information was published that claimed she lived with her mom at Shahid Kapoor’s apartment. As a result, she received phone calls from friends asking about her mother’s visit.
Furthermore, she also spoke about her anger towards journalists who had wrong intentions concerning her relationships with stars from Bollywood; for example, one time she retorted in a sarcastic manner which led to a false headline that made things worse for her.
Looking back at when I got famous overnight after ‘Rockstar’, Nargis admits that she felt overwhelmed and stressed out because of a lack of realization of the weightiness of the movie as well as its lead role by Ranbir Kapoor. She admitted that she behaved ignorantly and was unaware of how things worked around then.
