Nargis Fakhri and Uday Chopra’s flirtatious exchange on Twitter may suggest otherwise but the Madras Cafe star says she is currently single. The 34-year-old Bollywood beauty said Chopra is a “funny guy who loves to poke fun at others.”
“I don’t think about it. I have always been linked with everybody. Only I know the truth and the truth is I am currently single. I laughed at Uday when I read in the newspaper about his latest tweets. He is a funny person with a good sense of humour and he knows he can tease me and it doesn’t bother me,” Fakhri said.
Recently, Chopra, 41, posted a picture on Twitter, posing with a mug that had a picture of Fakhri on it and wrote: “Who is this Nargis Fakhri that everyone keeps linking me with. I’ve never heard of her.”
The Rockstar actress was in New Delhi on Tuesday for a store launch. Looking chic in a short pencil skirt and top, Fakhri said that she is a moody dresser and does not think twice when it comes to donning a bikini.
“I have a variety of styles. I don’t stick to one particular style. For me, fashion means dare. I don’t mind wearing a bikini. I am okay with it. I was a model before and all this is part of our job. You learn to be comfortable with your body. It’s fine and not a big deal,” she said.
Asked about who is the most stylish actress in the industry, Fakhri, who has been in Bollywood for the past three years, said: “I really like Deepika [Padukone] and Sonam’s [Kapoor] style. Deepika looks superb whereas Sonam is a bold dresser. She is not afraid to wear what she wants to wear. It could be over the top but she doesn’t care. That’s what fashion is all about. It’s an expression of individuality.”
Fakhri will be seen next in a Hollywood project Spy, which will hit theatres in May 2015. The action comedy stars Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Jude Law and Miranda Hart. “It [shooting] finished just two days ago and it was loads of fun. A completely new experience for me and I feel great to be a part of it as the film has an ensemble starcast.”
The New York-born actress is also geared up for her debut Tamil project Saahasam. She is making a guest appearance in the film. “I will start shooting for it. I am excited about it. I want to try everything before I die. No matter how small or big the project is,” she said.
