Nargis Fakhri has definitely come a long way since she debuted in 2012 with ‘Rockstar’. Determined more than ever to make her name within the industry, her latest venture proved more difficult than anticipated.
News has it that whilst shooting for her item song in Salman Khan’s forthcoming ‘Kick’, Fakhri had to perform some very difficult moves that left her rather battered and bruised. “I was dancing with Salman with a torn meniscus, a torn ham-string and two inflamed discs. So there was a lot of pain. But I kept pushing myself because Ahmed Khan`s choreography was so very inspiring. Now I am recuperating in bed,” Zee Newsreported the actress expressing.
She went on to add, “It was stressful. Before the dancing, I always get so nervous and stressed. I am not very comfortable with the gyrations and thrusts. My entire physical presence becomes tense. ”
The song composed by Yo Yo Honey Singh is an up beat and full of energy number. Despite her physical state, Fakhri went onto say how she had no regrets in doing the song, “It is a very special song. I do like Yo Yo Honey Singh`s songs. So I was super-excited about that as well. And I am blessed to have danced to it with Salman. Never mind the minor injuries.”
Though she was going through quite an ordeal, Fakhri did make it clear that she had all the support she needed, “Ahmed was fantastic. Only he was aware if my injuries because I shared my pain only with him. He was aware of my comfort level. If a dance step didn`t come easily to me he modified the step accordingly. But on the whole I stuck to the dance movements he created. Every one on the set was patient and supportive. The vibes were fantastic.”
Directed by Sajid Nadaidwala, ‘Kick’ also stars Randeep Hooda, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
