I don't care about trolls and criticism: Nargis Fakhri

19 August, 2017

Mumbai: She was recently trolled for her weight gain but actress Nargis Fakhri says she does not let online vitriol affect her. The actor, who revealed last month that she had gained 40 pounds, says she likes to stay away from limelight when she is not working.   

"I don't care or give a damn about criticism. We are too much in limelight. So, during my downtime I like to be relaxed and not focus on these things. "If someone thinks that I will get busted with trolls or criticism... Sorry, but it is not going to happen," Nargis told PTI on the sidelines of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.     

The 37-year-old actor, who was last seen in "Azhar", says she is fine with fewer but interesting films.   "I like being in an incognito mode until I have an opportunity to be back with a bang." Nargis walked for designer Anushree Reddy on the fourth day of the fashion extravaganza.   

Titled "Niloufer", the collection was inspired from the princess of Hyderabad, Niloufer. The garments had traditional zardozi work translated into contemporary silhouettes. The designer says she believes traditional outfits have a longevity and one should stick to in weddings as they can be passed on.   

Nargis, on her part, prefers casual dressing but says she would surely go traditional for her wedding day.   "I am not married yet but I would definitely go classic whenever I get married. I do experiment with other events but for bridal I prefer traditional." PTI
