This Old Video Of Nargis Fakhri Auditioning For A Model Hunt Show Is Now Viral
Nargis Fakhri, who made her Bollywood debut with Imtiaz Ali's Rockstar opposite actor Ranbir Kapoor in 2011, today is an established actor in the Hindi film industry.
A model-turned-actor Nargis oozes confidence and charm in her interviews and isn't one to mince her words. She is identified as someone who speaks her mind, no matter what.
But now this confident lady, who turns heads when she walks the ramp and garners appreciation for her onscreen performance, was a novice when she auditioned for America's Next Top Model in 2004.
An old audition clip recently surfaced where Nargis is reportedly seen auditioning for the show. The video which has now gone viral on social media was uploaded by a Youtube channel Nargis Fakhri Videos five years ago. The short clip has over 4 lakh views.
After watching the short video, one can easily fathom how nervous Nargis is during the audition (she also admits it). She fumbles, didn't have all the answers and when she was asked why she wants to be a model, Nargis claimed that she was looking at it 'just as job.' And this didn't seem to go down too well the judges.
But Nargis' simplicity gives an impression of a girl-next-door. And she going overboard with her rehearsals and fumbling on the D-day make us realise that she is like the most of us who are nervous to crack a job interview.
After gaining an entry into the show, Nargis made it to the semifinals, but was eventually eliminated from cycle 3. She had earlier auditioned for cycle 2 as well.
America's Next Top Model is presently in cycle 23.
