Nargis Fakhri agrees to don Bikini
The model turned actress, Nargis Fakhri, has finally been considered to play antagonist in the sequel of Krissh. After two major ladies walking out of the movie citing their problem to don bikini, Rakesh Roshan started a hunt who could match Hrithik Roshan and finally zeroed upon Nargis.
Nargis has also played female lead along with Ranbir Kapoor in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar. She started her career as ramp model, but she got noticed instantly after she posed topless for Kingfisher Calendar. Though, her acting calibre has not yet been measured, director squared upon Nargis.
Ever since its inception, the sequel to the 2006 blockbuster Krrish has faced an unprecedented roadblock in the form of the film’s female antagonist. Initially, Chitrangada Singh was brought on-board to star alongside Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra in the film.
However, the actress, who was not happy with her part in the film, opted out and so, Jacqueline Fernandez was offered the coveted role. But since Jacqueline was unwilling to lock lips with Hrithik in the film, she lost out on the role.
A source informed that Rakesh Roshan watched parts of Rockstar and was impressed with Nargis’ work. And so, the filmmaker met the actress to discuss becoming a part of the franchise.
The source explained, “Nargis really loved the script. The modalities are being worked out. It looks like Rakesh Roshan has finally found his heroine.”
