Nargis Fakhri On Taking A Break From Acting: I Was Told You Will Just Disappear; I Didn’t Want To Give Into That Rat Race'
Actress Nargis Fakhri made her impressive acting debut in 2011 with Imtiaz Ali’s romantic musical 'Rockstar' opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Her brilliant portal of Heer Kaul, the girl diagnosed with aplastic anaemia, and sizzling chemistry with Ranbir were appreciated by audiences and critics alike.  Nargis also starred in commercially successful films like ‘Housefull 3’ and ‘Azhar’. However, just when she was earning a name for herself, she took a break from acting. Now, in a recent interview, Fakhri has revealed why she took a break from the industry.

Speaking to Pinkvilla, the Main Tera Hero explained that it was a hard decision for her to take a break. She was told she would 'just disappear off the map' but despite warnings, she took the chance. “I never had a day off or I would have a day off. But when you have 1 day off and your friends and family are like 24 hours plane ride, how do you actually get to go see them and recharge? There came a point when I had to ask myself, why am I working so hard when I can’t even enjoy the fruits of my labour? So I had to make a decision,” Nargis was quoted saying.

She added, “Initially, I said that I need a few months off and people were like if you are going to take a few months off, you are going to be gone. You will just disappear off the map. But then I had to just take that chance and I am happy that I took that chance. I am happy that I wasn’t scared into continuing in that rat race.” 

Meanwhile, Nargis Fakhri is all set to make her comeback in the industry and is looking for good opportunities. The actress mentioned that she wants to do a lot more and that she is open to doing all sorts of roles. Nargis said she is looking forward to exploring drama, action, and comedy genres.  She was last seen in the action-thriller 'Torbaaz' directed by Girish Malik opposite Sanjay Dutt.
