How She Started Her Career
Unlike other stars, Nargis Fakhri’s date of birth was never a closely guarded secret when she entered the modelling arena. She is like an open book. If her Autobiography is ever written, this fact shall be highlighted, for very few have attained such heights of fame, glory and success and have remained level headed while always following the path of honesty, truth & innocence.
Her attempt to enter the showbiz started with Cycle 2 of America’s Next Top Model, a TV show, aired on January 13, 2004, where she narrowly missed the title. She made her second attempt in Cycle 3 and was commented by Tyra Banks, one of the judges on the show as a ‘women with substance’. Unfortunately she again had to end up as a semi-finalist.
But this brought the lovely lass in the eyes of international brands advertisers and she bagged modelling commercial Ad contracts for big brands like Sony Vaio, Bruno Banani Perfume and Platinum Jewelry. She also signed modelling deals with several Model Managements wordwide – to name a few; American Modelling Agencies: Ford Models & CESD, German Modelling Agencies: ANC, East West, Clear Models, and many more agencies around the globe.
Her Gradual Entry in Bollywood
Nargis Fakhri was living a regular modelling life where things were really chilled out for her. A literal smile was enough to make a living. She used to live in exotic locations where she could do anything as hardly anyone knew her. She was always au fait on making new friends which she calls as ‘Genuine Friendships.’
She was accustomed to surviving in a very open culture where she used to do everything by her own. She confessed she had bought groceries, drove herself around, cooked food and cleaned floors. For her modelling career, she had lived in Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, and kangaroos land Australia, and Kiwis place New Zealand, Germany, UK, US, France and Greece.
She was connected to India gradually. In 2009, she shot sensual photoshoot for Kingfisher Swimsuit Calendar for February & July leaf. She was highly appreciated by the famous photographer, Atul Kasbekar, “She is gorgeous in her own way with a great body….” She worked with many other Indian Brands but outside India.
During all these shoots, Imtiaz Ali, the director of Rockstar, seemed to have noticed her. When Nargis was living in Copenhagen His assistant messaged her, “Imtiaz would like to meet you. He’s coming to Prague.” She was really confused about this but she decided she would go and visit her Grandmom who she hadn’t seen since she was 10yrs. old and that she would also meet Imtiaz.
And thus they met. Imtiaz recited the story of Rockstar and straight away she fell in love with it and gave her consent to do the film.
