Nargis Fakhri last seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar paired opposite Ranbir Kapoor has already bagged Shoojit Sircar’s directed “Madras cafe” starring her and the hunk Abraham in the lead. The film is a political thriller about the intelligence agents and terrorism. Shoojit Sircar and John Abraham were in association since the Vicky Donor days that turned out to be a huge hit and this is their second film as a director-producer duo. Fakhri may have seemed to disappear from the big screen with her last movie Rockstar released back in the year 2011 but the half Czech-half Pakistani beauty is no hurry making it quite evident that she will choose only big banners and successful directors to carve her niche out in Bollywood.
Nargis’ acting abilities were criticized in her last movie and even with those angelic charm and beauty she didn’t become the next B-town actress who were a hit with the commercials charging crores for her brand value. The only advertisement she appeared in was of Parachute hot hair oil.No matter how little attention she grabbed or how depressed she left her fans after that performance there can be doubt that the lady is a hard core professional when it all boils down to her work. She has been shooting for Madras Cafe recently where there was a scheduled bikini shoot to be done in the water. She had been flying back to back from L.A. to India where she had gone to meet her mother. However changes in the climate left her with a fever of 104F. Since the shoot was already scheduled and Johnny boy had no other dates free because of the promotional tours involved with his upcoming movie “Shootout at Wadala” it had to be done. And Nargis just went ahead and did it brilliantly even though she was hot inside out. There was a doctor on the sets closely monitoring her and gave her the nod to complete the shoot.
Sure this practice in Bolly doesn’t feel out of the world.Remember how Vidya Balan already feverish while shooting for two hours continuously in the spring shower in the movie “The Dirty Picture” for the song “Ooh La La” had to be rushed to the hospital where she was admitted for two whole days. Also are heard of instances where the heroines are made to wear shortest of the short clothes and sleeveless blouses with chiffon sarees in the midst of snow peaked alpine. All in the name of professionalism and glamour! Also in news is a major catfight seething to take place between either Salman’s or Ranbir’s Katrina and neither Siddhartha’s nor Ranbir’s Deepika who have always been at loggerheads with each other. Currently DP shooting for “Chennai Express” where she is playing the lead is unhappy with the fact that there is a cameo by Katrina in it.It also looks like one of the major reason why bollywood isn’t obsessed with creating superheroes like the Hollywood because we have our own class of super-heroines and cat-women…err…catty women.
