We’ve sent our stars like Ali Zafar, Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan to shine in Bollywood, but is it time for a Bolly star to grace Pakistani screens? Nargis Fakhri appears willing.
The Rockstar actress of Pakistani origins said to media, “With Pakistan being in my blood, I would certainly look at opportunities to travel there.”
When asked if she would consider working in the Pakistani entertainment industry, she said, “I’m not the one to rule anything out.”
Fakhri, who made her Hollywood debut in Spy last year, and is currently shooting the biopic Azhar in which she plays the cricketer’s second wife, says that she hopes to show that “we are all the same inside and working together is the key to moving forward.”
“I believe that as actors, we have a phenomenal platform to spread positivity and influence people in the same way. In a time where there are divides between cultures and races, I would love to use my position to show that we are all the same inside and working together is the key to moving forward,” she said.
Fakhri has two other films going towards completion, Houseful 3 and Banjo.
