Nargis Fakhri has been out of the limelight for a long time. And while she is away from Bollywood, the actress is busy with her modelling projects. Recently in a conversation with former adult star Brittni De La Mora, Nargis revealed that before making it big in Bollywood during her modelling days, she was asked to pose naked for Playboy magazine. The actress, however, refused to be on the cover of the magazine. “When I was modelling, there was this college edition Playboy magazine thing. My agent said they are asking for girls, they have chosen to see you if you would want to do something like that. I was like, Playboy is so huge and the money was so much! But I said no thanks, I’m good,” Nargis said.
Nargis, who has been part of big films like Shoojit Sircar’s Madras Cafe and David Dhawan’s Main Tera Hero, also spoke about the Hindi film industry and how she became a part of the industry as it didn’t involve skin show. “I was really happy to work in Bollywood because they don’t do sex scenes. That made me so happy, because I am so not into getting naked in front of a camera. I can’t do. Any overly sexual or passionate scene would be difficult for me because even though it’s acting and what you are supposed to do, I had reservations about that,” Nargis added.
Nargis also opened up about the idea of compromising for work. While shedding deets about it, Nargis said, “I always knew that I am not going to be so hungry for fame that I am going to pose naked or sleep with a director… I have lost jobs because I didn’t do certain things and that was heartbreaking because I am trying to live in a place where I have high standards and boundaries, and it sucks!” she said. Even though she “got kicked out more than once.”
Nargis was last seen in Amavas, earlier this year.
