MUMBAI: Hottest from Bollywood’s tinsel-town is that Nargis Fakhri has headed back to the US after a nervous breakdown.
However, her spokesperson stated that the rumours are not true and the Azhar star has taken time off to nurse herself back to health. She will be back as soon as she’s fit and has no plans to quit the industry whatsoever.
As quoted by Pinkvilla.com, her spokesperson said, “Nargis has been extremely overworked working on 3 films simultaneously over the last year. Schedules and intense work hours that film-making demands are not something everyone can cope with.
“Nargis has been unwell, right through the Azhar promotions with multiple injuries – torn hamstring, anterior knee ligament thinning and mild socket dislocation along with burning of the stomach lining due to lead and arsenic poisoning.
“Due to these multiple issues and her overall exhaustion, she had a fever of about 101 degrees right through her promotions. Even though she was advised complete rest, she ensured she completed everything she had committed to for Azhar. However, due to her deteriorating condition, she had to request her Sajid sir and bow out of Housefull 3promotions to go back home to New York for a month to address all her medical issues and recuperate.”
“She has no plans to leave B-Town and will be back to sets to complete the pending patchwork for her film Banjo June 2nd week onwards with Riteish Deshmukh. In addition, she has already verbally agreed to two other projects for 2017 before she left and will complete the paperwork when she’s back,” added the spokesperson.
Houseful series producer Sajid Nadiadwala also stepped in for Nargis’ support and said, “Our priority is Nargis’s health. We do hope that she recuperates fast and can be there around the release of the film as she is an integral part of Housefull3 team.”
