Nargis Fakhri becomes a star in the film KICK which is all set to release this Friday worldwide as she plays a dancer and does an item number for the film. She sat down with Urban Asian and talked about the upcoming film along with how she hurt her knee during the shoot! Check out Nargis interview!
Q: Were you excited to work with Salman Khan?
A: I was nervous! He’s such a big Bollywood star, I was afraid I’d mess something up. When I went to the set and met him, all my fears faded away. Salman is a very positive person and his sense of humour is amazing! I had such a great time working with him and the whole team.
Q: You had some problems with your knee whilst shooting the song ‘Yaar Na Mile’. Did it affect your performance in any way?
A: Yes, I suffered from a ruptured knee and it was extremely painful, but I pulled myself together because I know that opportunities like this don’t appear very often. I have no idea how, but I managed to complete it in just four days.
Q: It’s your second item number. Do you think there will be more?
A: I really enjoy dancing, but I don’t want to be seen as just an item dancer. Acting is my passion and I want to do some good meaty roles. I am currently talking to different directors, but nothing has been finalized just yet.
Q: You will be making your Hollywood debut quite soon. What do you prefer Bollywood or Hollywood?
A: I think it has to be Bollywood. I am feeling more comfortable in Bollywood because I have spent more time here and I do have a much better understanding about it. Besides dancing and music is my passion, this is why I prefer to spend more time here [Bollywood].
Q: Tell us a bit more about your dance number?
A: It is a very urban, edgy yet sexy dance number. There was a lot to learn. At first I thought I might miss some steps, but everything went brilliantly well. Salman has a great energy and I think that is what made me so comfortable around him.
