Nargis Fakhri, On Taking A Break From Acting, Says, “I Wasn’t Scared Into Continuing In That Rat Race” Deets Inside
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Nargis Fakhri revealed why she took a break from acting. The gorgeous actress, Nargis Fakhri, is one of the most talented actresses in the Hindi film industry. With the actor, Ranbir Kapoor’s starrer Rockstar, the actress made an impressive debut, and she hasn’t looked back since then. Nargis, however, took a break from the industry after capturing the hearts of her fans with her incredible performances in a number of films.
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Nargis unveiled many things from her personal life and poured her heart out. She also discussed taking a break from acting when she was at the pinnacle of her success. Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri revealed, “It’s because I took the hard decision to take a break.”
“I never had a day off or I would have a day off. But when you have 1 day off and your friends and family are on a 24-hour plane ride, how do you actually get to go see them and recharge? There came a point when I had to ask myself, why am I working so hard when I can’t even enjoy the fruits of my labour?”
“So I had to make a decision. Initially, I said that I needed a few months off, and people were like if you are going to take a few months off, you are going to be gone. You will just disappear off the map. But then I had to just take that chance, and I am happy that I took that chance. I am happy that I wasn’t scared into continuing in that rat race.”
When asked about moments when she felt like quitting but then gathered herself up and started again, Nargis Fakhri mentioned: “I shouldn’t say quit for me because I try not to quit. I think a lot of people need to take time off because we live in a world where it’s like 24/7 work and people do not prioritise self-care enough. And if you are going to work so much, you are going to burn yourself out, and then what’s going to happen? You’re going to get unwell. You’re not going to be mentally okay or physically okay. So not more about quitting because I think quitting just has a negative connotation attached to it. It’s more, just taking time for yourself.”
“And I mean I quit and fail, but no one really fails because from your failures you always learn something new. And the point was to really just pick yourself up and keep going because from those failures or if you quit or take time off, you can recharge, regroup, and then learn from your mistakes and then become better. So that was the actual thought behind it.”
On the professional front, Nargis Fakhri was last seen in Torbaaz opposite Sanjay Dutt.
