Nargis Fakhri will be paired with Ranbir Kapoor in Rockstar

Nargis Fakhri, a half Kashmiri-half Czech model, is going to work in Imtiaz Ali’s next movie, Rockstar. Fakhri will be paired up with Ranbir Kapoor. Already, Fakhri appeared as a model on the 2009 Kingfisher Swimsuit edition.

Twenty one year old Fakhri grew up in New York. She had never been to Pakistan and she knows about India by watching Bollywood movies. Her mother wanted her to pursue a career in fine arts but one of her friends persuaded her to get into modeling. According to Fakhri, her “mixed-culture percentage” gives her an exotic look. Like Deepika Padukone, Fakhri has long legs and beautiful brown hair.

This is not the first time Imtiaz Ali hired any International model. Earlier, he roped in Brazilian model, Giselle Monteiro, in Love Aaj Kal.

Imtiaz chose Nargis for her Anglo-Indian look which goes very well with the character. After taking several screen tests, she was chosen for the role. In the movie, Ranbir Kapoor would play the role of a rockstar while Nargis will be a dancer.

Fakhri also appeared in the America's Next Top Model, Cycle 3 which started on September 22, 2004. She also auditioned for the Cycle 2 but could not make it to the finals.

Here is a video clip of Nargis Fakhri in a TV commercial.
