Nargis Fakhri Opens Up On Taking A Break From Bollywood For Mental Health: 'I Was Overworked And Stressed'
Nargis Fakhri is one of the popular stars in Bollywood. Over the years, she has been a part of many films including Rockstar and Main Tera Hero. Post 2017, Nargis decided to take a break from Bollywood. In a recent interview, Nargis shared that she was overworked and stressed and it is what made her realise that she wasn't doing things that made her happy. She added that she thought of taking a break to balance between her mind and body.

Speaking to Times of India, the actress shared, "Somewhere down the line, I realised that I was overworked and stressed. I missed my family and friends. I remember that 2016-2017 was a period of realisation for me. I felt that I wasn't doing things that made me happy. I did films back-to-back and thought there was just too much happening, and I needed to stop. I felt the need to pause to balance my mind and body. And that's when I took the step."

The actress further talked about how celebs fear of getting lost if they take a break. She added, "Once in a while, it is important for the sake of your mental and physical health to take a break. I know that in the industry, actors, their managers, and even PR agencies tell you that you have to be more visible and that if you take a break for too long, people tend to forget you."

She went on to add, "I think there is a lot of fear in the minds of the artistes who don't want to lose what they have worked hard for. My perspective is, you never lose, especially when you take time out for yourself, for self-care, and to instropect instead you actually win when you do that."

The actress was last seen in a supporting role in the Netflix film Torbaaz. She shared screen space with Sanjay Dutt and Rahul Dev. Up next, she will be seen in the Telugu film Hari Hara Veera Mallu, which stars Palwan Kalyan.
