Zitat des Tages von Nargis Fakhri:
I'm tired of the speculation about my personal life.
I would like to be more fit, but I don't think I will put on fat or gain weight for movie roles. I am not going to do that.
I have this board in my house that lists out all the things that I love about myself. It's a board of affirmations, and it serves me well.
I've learnt some important lessons: I never rely on the opinion of one doctor alone. I do my own research; I read up and am ready with questions I need answered.
I generally fall sick if I eat very heavy food.
As a child, I did watch some Hindi movies at home with Dad, but I didn't know who anyone was. I wasn't interested, honestly.
I'm intrigued by traditional Indian designs. They are so beautifully handcrafted, and the designs are so intricate and beautiful. I really prefer the Indian designs.
I think massage is a very important part of life, which is present from centuries as an imminent part of India's tradition.
I was tall and skinny, and at 15, I was approached to model. I figured that models got to travel, and it became my ticket to travel so much so that if an agency could not fly me to another country, I would fly on my cost so that I could see that country and also make some money.
Some critics have been very harsh. That's okay. I like honest criticism.
I've never been a movie buff. If I did go to a theatre to watch a film, half the time, I would fall asleep.
I don't consider myself as a glamour diva. If you get to know me, you will see that I am so dorky and weird.
I have vowed never to take antibiotics again unless I really need them. I also learned to pay attention to my body, know the difference between indigestion, an allergic reaction to food, a parasitic infection or worms. It's incredible how well I know my body. I really love that.
I sometimes wonder if I pushed myself to get out there and meet people I'd get more work.
When you are sick, you are sick. Period.
I don't think anyone could play me. It would have to be me.
I did a B.A. with a major in fine arts and a minor in psychology. I wanted to become a teacher or do art therapy for the elderly. But then I realised I wanted to travel instead.
People will still give me attention: even when my teeth are gone, I'll have some good stories to tell.
I miss having my mom and close friends around. Thank God for Skype and Face-Time, which keep me connected... but interacting digitally can't come close to the feeling of being hugged by my mom or getting together for a meal with my friends on the same table.
For me, life is about experiencing many new things and working with good people, working on good projects, and in general, just having any kind of job.
I think I am feeling comfortable in Bollywood more than in Hollywood because I have spent more time here now and I am understanding a lot of things. I am feeling pretty good here. I really don't plan on running off anywhere.
I know I'm not the consummate Bollywood heroine. But I'm working hard on it.
I just do my job and go home. There's just one or two people I can say are friends that I can call.
Don't be surprised if you find me doing some charity work in another country.
No, I don't have a plan. Whatever happens happens. There's never a plan.
I come from a culture where we wear white for weddings. In India, it's different. But I really feel that there should be no set notions, and a bride should only wear something when she's comfortable in it.
I like to wear jewellery, even though I like my look to be minimalist. When I go out for events, I like to have at least one statement piece. It always adds glamour.
I don't want to be known as an item dancer. I want to be known as an actress only.
I like to start my day with a glass of coconut water, some protein powder, and a mix of things - goji berries, flax seeds, hemp seeds, even the flesh of a coconut or anything with a lot of fibre. I often add bananas, or eggs - fried or boiled - to my breakfast.
I read about human psychology, practise balance, and accept that everything and everyone in our lives is transient. One day, people will criticise you, and the next day, they will praise you.
You need to train your brain to be positive.
I firmly believe that one of the best kept secrets to soft and glowing skin is moisturisation.
I think that, occasionally, fame and popularity can garner more attention for individuals or films. But as a person who believes in my craft, I like the romantic notion that skill and hard work is more important than notoriety.
Stereotyping of any race or culture is narrow-minded, and I can't wait to help break the shackles.
I use coconut oil every single day. I apply coconut oil on my whole body for moisturising. The oil can also be used as make-up remover, as it is light-based and is not sticky.
I knew that all South Indian language films were first made in Chennai and that Tamil Nadu is one of the biggest film-producing centres in the country. I wanted to be part of films here.
