Nargis Fakhri (born October 20, 1979) is an American actress and model, who mainly appears in Hindi films.[2][3] Her first role in film came with the 2011 blockbuster romantic drama Rockstar, for which she received a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut nomination. She subsequently received praise for portraying a war correspondent in the political thriller Madras Cafe (2013), and achieved further success with starring roles in the highly successful comedies Main Tera Hero (2014), Spy (2015) and Housefull 3 (2016), the second of which was a Hollywood production.[4][5]

Early life and modeling[edit]

Fakhri was born in Queens, New York,[1] to Mohammed Fakhri, a businessman, and Marie Fakhri, a former police officer.[6] According to the actress, her father was from Pakistan, and moved to the United States for better earnings, while her mother is Czech.[6] She has one younger sister, Aliya. Fakhri's parents divorced when she was six, and her father died a few years later.[7] Because of her mixed Pakistani-Czech ethnicity and American nationality, Fakhri describes herself a "global citizen".[6][7][1]

Fakhri started her career as a model at the age of 16. In her later years, she appeared as a contestant on the second and third cycle of America's Next Top Model (2004).[3] Although Fakhri was selected for the first two challenges of both the cycles, she failed to make up to the third challenge for the top twelve contestants.[8] She subsequently modeled professionally in America, working for freelance agencies, and appearing regularly at fashion shows. Fakhri's fame increased when she appeared in a highly popular Indian print campaign for the 2009 Kingfisher Calendar.[1] Her appearance in the Kingfisher Calendar attracted the attention of Indian filmmaker Imtiaz Ali.[9][10] He selected her for a role in the Hindi romantic drama Rockstar.[11][12] Fakhri later said that she agreed to work in India so that she could "relate to [her] culture" and get "close to [her] roots [Pakistan]", because India and Pakistan share the same culture.[6][5][7]

Acting career[edit]

Career beginnings and breakthrough (2011–2015)[edit]

Fakhri promoting Rockstar in 2011

Fakhri made her acting debut with a female lead role in Imtiaz Ali's musical romantic drama Rockstar in 2011. The film follows the journey of an aspiring musician from a humble background to international stardom after the death of his passionate lover.[13] Rockstar was the first film in India to show a Kashmiri Pandit wedding, and saw Fakhri as a free-spirited rich brat, hailing from the Kashmiri Pandit background.[14][15] Due to her poor command in Hindi, Fakhri's voice was dubbed over by the voice artist Mona Ghosh Shetty.[16] The film received overwhelming responses from critics, but their opinions toward her were mixed, though she was praised for her looks.[17][18] Film critic Taran Adarsh wrote: "Nargis is a stunner as far as looks are concerned, but isn't persuasive in poignant moments", however, he praised her on-screen chemistry with co-star Ranbir Kapoor.[19] Raja Sen of Rediff.com noted that she is an "exotically ravishing heroine, one so pretty we forgive her occasionally stilted diction".[20] While Nikhat Kazmi praised her performance and said that Fakhri "stands tall as the delectable Heer who sizzles on screen with her unconventional ways".[21] With a gross revenue of 1.07 billion (US$15 million), Rockstar was one of the top-grossing Hindi films of the year.[22] Fakhri's performance in the film earned her several Best Female Debut nominations at various award ceremonies, including a Filmfare nomination.

Her next release was opposite John Abraham in the Shoojit Sircar's political thriller Madras Cafe (2013), a drama set during the time of the Indian intervention in the Sri Lankan civil war and the assassination of former Indian prime minister Rajiv Gandhi.[23] Her portrayal was of a British war correspondent in Sri Lanka, and was inspired by many war correspondents, including Anita Pratap.[24] Unlike her debut film, Fakhri dubbed her own dialogues and was approached for the film because Sircar wanted "a girl who looked Indian but had an [English] accent".[25] Upon release, Madras Cafe received acclaim from the critics, and the performances of the lead actors were praised.[26] Saibal Chatterjee said Fakhri "strikes the right notes",[27] whereas Rajeev Masand called her "pleasantly competent".[28] Anuj Kumar of The Hindu was particularly impressed with the film and thought that Fakhri has proved that she has more to her than just a "prominent pout".[29][30] Later that year, she made a special appearance in the action comedy Phata Poster Nikhla Hero to perform in the item number "Dhating Naach" with the film's lead actor Shahid Kapoor.[31]

The following year, Fakhri collaborated with Varun Dhawan and Ileana D'Cruz for the romantic comedy Main Tera Hero, a remake of the 2011 Telugu film Kandireega, produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and directed by David Dhawan.[32] Set in Bangkok, she played the role of Ayesha, a Don's daughter, who falls for an impetuous brat.[33] The film was a financial success, but received mixed reviews from critics.[34][35] For her performance in the film, Rohit Khilnani said that Fakhri "is not bad" and that "she fits well in this masala comedy and doesn't disappoint".[36][37] Taran Adarsh however, disagreed, and said though she "looks great", she needs to "polish her acting skills".[38] She next appeared in a popular item number titled "Yaar Naa Miley" with Salman Khan for Sajid Nadiadwala's action thriller Kick.[39] The song was well received by critics and was immensely popular among the audience.[40][41] Later that year, she starred in Paul Feig's action comedy Spy, her first Hollywood film.[5] The film follows the transformation of desk-bound CIA analyst Susan Cooper (McCarthy) into a field agent who attempts to foil the black market sale of a suitcase nuke.[42] Featuring alongside Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham and Jude Law, Fakhri was cast in her first antagonist role, portraying Lia, a secret agent. The film and her performance received praise from critics.[43] John Boone of Entertainment Tonight noted how much she stood out in the "fewer quieter scenes" of the film.[44][45] Fakhri's performance earned her an MTV Movie Award for Best Fight nomination.[46] Spy emerged as one of top-grossing productions of the year, earning $235.7 million worldwide.[47][48]

Commercial struggles (2016–present)[edit]

Fakhri began 2016 with a special appearance in the Tamil film Saagasam, to perform in the item number "Desi Girl" with the film's lead actor Prashanth.[49][50][51] The song, described as a peppy "bar number", was choreographed by Raju Sundaram, and featured hundred extras.[52][53] Fakhri next appeared alongside Emraan Hashmi and Prachi Desai in the biographical sports drama Azhar.[54] She portrayed Sangeeta Bijlani, an actress and the second wife of cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin.[55] In an interview with Mid Day, Azharuddin said that the film is about his God, marriage and match-fixing.[56] Azhar generated controversy when a CBI officer, who investigated his case during match-fixing, claimed that he has a video tape in which Azharuddin had confessed his involvement in the match-fixing, however, he failed to prove it.[57] Critics praised the films narration, but were divided in their opinion as to her performance.[58] Namrata Joshi of Outlook noted that she was "likeable" in her part, however, Devesh Sharma of Filmfare wrote that she brought "plasticky expressions".[59] Commercially, the film was moderately successful at the box office.[60] She then took on a supporting role for the third installment of the Housefull film series.[61] The ensemble comedy film saw her playing the role of a rich brat who convinces who falls in love with a con-man (Abhishek Bachchan).[62] Reviews of the film and her performance were largely negative.[63] Writing for Firstpost, Subhash K. Jha criticized Fakhri for her inclination toward a film where she was "treated as [a] visual attraction [...] and nothing else".[64] Nevertheless, the film was a major commercial success, grossing 1.88 billion (US$26 million) billion worldwide.[65][66] Fakhri then played a minor role in the adventure comedy Dishoom.[67] Her portrayal was of star Saqib Saleem's friend, which she described as a "cameo".[68]

Fakhri's final role in 2016 was as Christina, an American citizen in search of an instrumentalist capable of playing the banjo, in Ravi Jadhav's musical Banjo.[69][70] Co-starring Riteish Deshmukh, the film was described as a tribute to rappers living in Mumbai's ghettos.[71] Upon release, the film received mixed reviews and under performed at the Box Office India.[72][73] Writing for the Times of India, Renuka Vyavahare thought that she "overdoes the American accent but grows on you eventually."[74] Koimoi.com wrote that "Why would you waste your money to watch Nargis’ acting and Riteish juggling between his Lai Bhaari and Rockstar character."[75] Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV noted that her part in the drama is the film's "biggest undoing."[76] In October, 2017 Fakhri was selected as a One Young World counselor, alongside Kofi Annan, Doutzen Kroes, and Cher to speak at their summit in Bogota.[77][78]

As of May 2018, Fakhri has several projects at various stages of production. She has filmed a special song in the action thriller Race 3, with Salman Khan.[79] She has also completed work on her second Hollywood production, the romantic comedy 5 Weddings, opposite Rajkumar Rao, and on the action thriller Torbaaz, alongside Sanjay Dutt.[80][81][82] Additionally, she has committed to star with Sachiin Joshi in the horror drama Amavas, that will be directed by Bhushan Patel.[83][84]
