Nargis Fakhri isn’t affected by criticism anymore


Actress Nargis Fakhri, who drew flak for her performance in director Imtiaz Ali’s 2011 musical romantic drama “Rockstar”, says she is not affected by critics anymore.

“Now whatever people say it doesn’t affect me that way because after ‘Rockstar’ it was so dramatic. Now I have a better understanding (of films) so now I don’t care. But I am so proud of that film,” Nargis said.

However, Nargis admitted that the negative reviews for her debut film had a “traumatising” effect on her.

“After ‘Rockstar’ it was tough because all the reviews came out were so negative that it was very traumatising. I never wanted to be an actress… I didn’t even ask for this… It was horrible and so dramatic,” she said.

“Rockstar” featured actor Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role.
