Actress Nargis Fakhri today dodged queries about her apparent break-up with actor Uday Chopra and asked the media not to ask “irrelevant” questions.
The actress has made headlines ever since the news about her alleged break-up with Uday started doing the rounds. When earlier this year, she left the promotions of “Housefull 3” mid way and went back to US, some reports suggested she had quit Bollywood forever due to split from Uday.
Nargis’ spokesperson, however, stated that time she was exhausted due to work and needed a break. At the trailer launch of her latest 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 prodded further, Nargis said, “Your question is irrelevant, so it’s quite sad. I don’t think you should continue.” The 36-year-old “Rockstar” 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 for the reason behind it, 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 “Azhar” actress said she missed promoting “Housefull 3” with her co-stars and was “sad” about it.
“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’)”.
Directed by Ravi Jadhav, “Banjo” is a musical drama which features Riteish, 37, as a Banjo player while Nargis will portray the role of a DJ in the movie. The film, also starring dancer-actor Dharmesh Yelande, is set to release on September 23.
