Born on 20th October, 1979, Nargis Fakhri had already made a name for herself in the entertainment business before venturing into films. This gorgeous girl has been the face of many brands all over the world including Herbal Essence, Subway and Ponds. She has also appeared on the cover of world renowned magazines such as Elle, Vogue, Grazia and Harper’s Bazaar.
Nargis made her debut in Bollywood with Rockstar, opposite Ranbir Kapoor in 2011. The movie went onto to become a super hit and her performance was appreciated by audiences and critics alike. As she’s the daughter of a Czech mother and a Pakistani father who’s been born and brought up in New York, she had problems with the language and unfortunately, her voice had to be dubbed in the film. However, following in the footsteps of another lead actress who had similar problems, Nargis is determined to improve her diction by her next movie.
This New-York based model was also a contestant on the second and third cycles of America’s Next Top Model. She made it to the semi-finals in Cycle 3. Nargis was also a part of the 2009 Kingfisher swimsuit calendar.
When asked to describe herself, the actress is quick to reply that she loves to talk, crack jokes and drinks lots of coffee. She also enjoys cooking, meditation and yoga.
Unfortunately, due to changes beyond her control, Nargis will no longer be a part of Khiladi 786, Akshay Kumar’s home production. Guess the audiences will have to wait a while before seeing this stunning face on-screen again!
