Rockstar Actress Nargi Fakhri Turned Down 'Appealing' Offer By Playboy

New Delhi:

Actress Nargis Fakhri has been in Bollywood for eight years now. The actress who made her entry to acting with Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar recently bared about her "reservations" about posing naked in front of the cameras. The actress was at former adult star Brittni De La Mora's talk show recently when she revealed show was once offered an opportunity by popular adult magazine Playboy

Nargis, who began her career as a model in the age of 16, then turned down an offer from adult magazine or their edition of a college magazine Speaking on the show, Nargis said while the money offered by Playboy was a rather appealing deal, she decided to skip it: "When I was modelling, there was this college edition Playboy magazine thing. My agent said they are asking for girls and they have chosen to see you if you would want to do something like that. And of course I was like, 'Playboy is so huge and the money was so much'! I was like 'That's a lot of money!' But then I was like... no. I said no thanks, I'm good."


Elaborating on her point why she rejected the offer or proposition of posing ‘anaked’ on camera Nargis added: "With models, you are just this mannequin. So, there are times when they ask you to do topless shots or to be like super naked in an ad but I was never comfortable with stuff like that." Nargis Fakhri also featured in America's Next Top Model in 2004.


Nargis Fakhri, was comfortable about joining Bollywood because , “ They don't do sex scenes. So that made me so happy because I am so not into getting naked in front of the camera. Like I can't do it. An overtly sexual or passionate scene would be very difficult for me because even though it's acting and that's what you are supposed to do, I just had reservations about that. So, I was happy about that."

Nargis Fakhri has also featured in films such as Madras Cafe, Main Tera Hero, Azhar, Housefull 3 and Banjo.
