While interacting with the media on Tuesday, actress Nargis Fakhri dodged questions about her alleged break-up with actor Uday Chopra and asked reporters not to ask irrelevant questions.
The actress has been making headlines ever since the news of her break-up with long time boyfriend Uday started doing the rounds of the media. Following their split earlier this year, Fakhri left the promotions of ‘Housefull 3’ mid way and returned to the U.S.
Later, some reports claimed that the actress had decided to quit Bollywood for good. Her spokesperson, however, clarified that she was simply exhausted at the time due to work and was in need of a break.
At the trailer launch of her upcoming film ‘Banjo’, when she was asked about her reported break-up, her co-star Riteish Deshmukh came to her rescue and told reporters, “Are you kidding me? I am her spokesperson I’ll answer this question.”
When reporters continued to prod further, Nargis responded by saying, “Your question is irrelevant, so it’s quite sad. I don’t think you should continue.”
The 36-year-old ‘Azhar’ actress came to India yesterday after a gap of almost three months. She was clicked by the paparazzi at the airport, where she was covering her face.
When asked why she had decided to cover her face, Nargis said, “Actually when I travel I wear a hoodie and a scarf all the time, because a lot of people are sick on the airplane, so, you get sick all the time. I just do like that. That’s the way I walk around.”
To which Riteish quipped, “She comes to sets that way.”
The ‘Rockstar’ actress even confessed that she missed promoting ‘Housefull 3’ with her co-stars. “I was very sad not to be a part of promotions with my co-actors because they are hilarious. I missed out on a lot of fun. But unfortunately I was unwell. Now I am better and super excited for promotions of this (Banjo)”.
Helmed by Ravi Jadhav, ‘Banjo’ is a musical drama which features Riteish, 37, as a Banjo player and Nargis as a DJ. The film, also starring dancer-actor Dharmesh Yelande, is set to release on September 23.Back to latest news
