This will be the actress second Hollywood venture.
Nargis Fakhri who was last seen in Hollywood’s action comedy Spy, will now be seen in her next. The actress has signed a film that will be helmed by actor turned producer Namrata Singh Gujral. She will be the lead in movie and share screen space with Oscar nominee Candy Clark and Golden Globe nominee Bo Derek. The movie revolves around an American journalist who travels to India to write a story on Bollywood weddings.
Talking to a leading daily, Nargis says that she’s extremely excited about her leap from Bollywood to Hollywood. She feels connected to her role in this film as the character is American but has multi-ethnic heritage. In the film, she is forced to connect with her roots and it becomes a life changing experience for her. The movie will be shot in US and in India towards the end of this year. Probably now we know the real reason why Nargis disappeared from the Bollywood scene suddenly.
Nargis considers herself lucky since she is working in Bollywood and in Hollywood as well. She is happy that Bollywood has proved fruitful for her but now she wants to do projects back home in the US.
Nargis who was last seen in a cameo appearance in Dishoom will be next seen in the Riteish Deshmukh starrer Banjo.
