Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri who has been brought up in New York is working really hard to learn Hindi. The actress born to a Pakistani father and a Czech mother has been taking Hindi classes since a year. She says that she is adapting and adjusting in Bollywood by working on her Hindi diction every day.
The actress wishes that she should have learnt Urdu during her
younger days."I'm still learning everyday, and I'm learning to
adapt and adjust. I work as much as I can. I have learnt to read
and write, I try to watch films without subtitles so that I can
understand Hindi better. I wish I would have learnt Urdu when I was
a child," said Nargis.
Nargis got an opportunity to star in a big Bollywood movie
Rockstar but she was denied to give her voice for her
lines in the movie. Now she will be seen in Madras
Cafe as an European Journalist, so the audiences will not
speaking in Hindi this time. Nargis looks forward to speaking her
own lines in future and also mentions that she wants to do films
that she would love to watch as an audience.
"I started taking Hindi classes one year ago. I understand at
least 80 percent. I'm trying really hard, but I don't understand
many jokes. But I'm happy now people cannot talk about me in Hindi,
because I understand that," Nargis explained.
In the gap between her debut film and the upcoming Madras
Cafe, Nargis had a busy schedule. "I was busy reading scripts,
dance classes, Hindi classes, travelling to see my family, moving
my stuff from New York to Mumbai and adjusting,"
