Nargis Fakhri, who is playing a lead role in Madras Cafe, says that it's very difficult to live in a place like India. In an exclusive interview with Oneindia's correspondent Sonika Mishra, Nargis talked about her family, films and her rumoured link-ups. Read the excerpts.
Tell us about your role in Madras Cafe.
Madras Cafe is a very beautiful film. I always wanted to be a part of such brilliant film. I was very happy when I got the offer to do Madras Cafe. I am playing the role of a reporter in the movie. I always used to think about the tough life of journalists, who are always surrounded by some difficulties. But they never let these difficulties hamper their work.
Did you follow any particular journalist for this role?
No, I have not followed any one journalist. Instead, I closely followed the way they all work. I saw their videos and saw them covering events.
Shoojit Sircar says that Madras Cafe is your debut film. What do you have to say on this?
Maybe Shoojit is very proud of me and that's why he said something like this. I am very lucky that I have got the opportunity to work with two big directors -Imtiaz Ali (Rockstar) and Shoojit (Madras Cafe).
Which was your toughest scene in Madras Cafe?
There was one scene in which I am sitting inside a car and people are firing gun shots. While filming this shot, some pieces of the glass came straight on my face. If it would have got into my eyes, I would have turned blind. I was very scared while shooting for this scene.
How is John Abraham as a co-star?
John has played a real role in Madras Cafe. He has worked really hard for this role, which has impressed me a lot. Not only he is talented, but is a very good human being also.
Did John take you on a bike ride?
No, but I will ask him to take me on a bike ride some day.
Any particular place in India that you would love to visit again?
During the shooting of Madras Cafe, we want to Cochin. We visited Amrapali Falls there. We also did night safari and enjoyed a lot. I loved that place and would like to visit it again.
