Nargis Fakhri turns dietician
Get your lowdown on what's going on in the world of Bollywood, right here!
After playing a no-nonsense war correspondent in Shoojit Sircar's well received Madras Cafe, model-actress Nargis Fakhri is set to play a dietician in her new film Main Tera Hero.
Nargis, who shed a considerable amount of weight by going on a special juice diet, made her co-star Ileana D'Cruz try the same.
"I had a great time shooting in Bangkok. While I was there I always wanted to try a juice cleanse. I have heard and researched great things about giving your body a break from regular or junk food, so I decided to try a six-day juice cleanse. I lost three kilos in six days," Nargis said.
She also said that seeing her diet course, Illeana got curious. But she could do it only for one day, the actress said.
Main Tera Hero, a contemporary commercial Bollywood entertainer, features Varun Dhawan, Nargis Fakhri and Illeana D'Cruz in lead roles.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Motion Pictures, the film hits cinema houses on April 4.

Amitabh Bachchan gets emotional on Abhishek's 38 birthday
Amitabh Bachchan says he wants to be a friend, companion and support to his son Abhishek, who turned 38 today.
The occasion brought many old memories for the 71-year-old actor.
"Abhishek just turned 38...! It is obvious cliche to start speaking suddenly of the day and moment he was born and what we were up to, of how he behaved when young, of his growing up, his days then to now, little incidents of nostalgic flavour," Bachchan posted on his blog.
"Now it is best to be with him as an adult, a friend, a confidante, a support, a companion... That is best what occurs to me, and shall ever remain...," he further added.
Abhishek will be next seen in Farah Khan's Happy New Year, that co-stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Boman Irani among others.
