Aprt from movies, Nargis made headlines for her alleged relationship with Uday Chopra. Earlier in an interview, Nargis stated, ” I am glad that Uday always keeps me in news. We often laugh about everything that’s written about us. But I am repeating myself, Uday and I aren’t dating. But he will always remain a part of my life. I have a very few friends in India and I feel fortunate that he’s one of them.”
After spending a lot of time in the industry, Nargis still feels like an outsider. Fakhri said, ” People behaved strangely after Rockstar. I received a lot of criticism, but it didn’t bother me.”
