They thought her dress was way too revealing for their audience to be comfortable with.
Nargis wore a neon green dress with stylish cuts, but the producers didn’t clear it. The assistant directors on the sets were told to instruct Nargis to change it. That didn’t help as the actor didn’t see anything wrong with her outfit.
Later, the show director had to intervene, and made it clear that Nargis can shoot for the show only after pinning up her dress.
Nargis made her Rockstar debut in 2011, which earned her a Best Female Debut nomination. But a few months ago, amidst speculations about her personal life, actress Nargis Fakhri took a break from Bollywood.
Nargis will soon be seen in Banjo, opposite actor Riteish Deshmukh. Describing the movie, she says, “Banjo is a quirky movie in which I play a DJ who goes to Mumbai in search of a band.”
Nargis confesses that she has no friends in the industry, except for Imtiaz Ali’s assistant director. “She is my best buddy and always ready to help me even during the wee hours. I am happy to have her by my side.”
The actress has her plans laid out. “After Banjo releases, I will be flying to New York to shoot a Hollywood film opposite Raj Kumar Rao. I have also been deputed to write a story for a magazine,” she says.
About the recent incident, the channel has said that the small screen has always been considered for family viewing and makers of few TV shows still hesitate from airing anything bold on their shows. Something similar happened when Nargis Fakhri appeared on a dance reality show, Dance Plus to promote her upcoming film, Banjo.
