'After my illness, I encountered another unfortunate situation that caused me not to be able to come back to Bollywood.'
'I do not want to talk about that, maybe one day I will.'
The gorgeous Nargis Fakhri wants to come back to Bollywood.
But she tells Subhash K Jha, "Since the other issue has been solved, I feel I can come back and be a part of Hindi cinema again."
You seem to have given up on Bollywood.
No, I did not. I was extremely ill, but that is a story I don't feel like sharing.
After my illness, I encountered another unfortunate situation that caused me not to be able to come back to Bollywood.
I do not want to talk about that, maybe one day I will.
I miss India a lot.
I miss acting and I miss my friends in India.
Unfortunately, sometimes life has other plans.
I remember how uncomfortable you were with the dancing and with the way actresses are expected to suck up to leading men to be in their good books. Would you say these are the factors made you recoil from the Hindi film industry?
Having to pander to the male ego is international so that did not make me recoil or leave Bollywood.
Although this is not true for all people in the industry.
I have met and worked with some wonderful people and really appreciate them.
I love the dancing in Bollywood; I love to dance.
At that time, I was unfamiliar with the style. It takes me a little longer to learn choreography.
Who are your friends in Mumbai?
I don't have too many friends in Mumbai. But the few that I do, I really appreciate them and am grateful that they are my friends.
I was planning to come back to India in April, but COVID happened and plans changed.
Since I am in good health and the other issue has been solved, I feel I can come back and be a part of Hindi cinema again.
How seriously do you take the digital platform? Are you going to be any part of it?
If you mean digital platforms like Netflix, Amazon and other streaming sites, yes, it's a big part of the future.
Finally, who is that someone special in your life we keep hearing about?
Not sure whom you are hearing about.
I am single and hope to meet a good man to settle down with.
