I am more comfortable in non-glamorous roles: Nargis Fakhri

The actress says that she uses fashion as a way to express herself and create her identity.


Actress Nargis Fakhri, who featured in glamorous roles in films like Main Tera Hero (2014), Azhar (2016) and Housefull 3 (2016), says she is more comfortable playing non-glamorous characters.

She walked for designer Anushree Reddy on the fourth day of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2017, sporting a fuller frame.

To a question by IANS on whether she is comfortable doing de-glam roles, Nargis said, "Yeah sure, why not. It takes less time to get ready (laughed). I am actually much more comfortable in non-glamorous roles."

She also said that coming from New York, she always believed in easy styling and hates when people make a faux paus.

"Coming from New York City, we wear what we feel like wearing and we use fashion as a way to express ourselves and create our own identity. Something I dislike is when certain people deem certain things unfashionable or a faux pas. Fashion is an art and everyone has different kind of taste. I prefer to wear gym clothes all day, every day because it's comfortable and casual," Fakhri said.

Reddy, a Hyderabad-based designer showcased a vintage bridal collection titled 'Niloufer'. She drew inspiration from the beautiful princess of Hyderabad, Niloufer.

The line is about elaborate royal opulence, that harks back to the aura of the majestic Mughal empire. Intricate hand embroidery takes strong influences from details ranging from architecture to jewellery.

Nargis felt empowered while walking the ramp in one of the creations. "I love Anushree Reddy's designs, and I like fashion, plus I enjoy walking the ramp. You feel like an empowered Princess walking the runway," she said.

When asked what's on her plate next, she said, "There are a few things that I am working on. I prefer to spread my seeds and see what I sow. I am trying my hand at different things to see what's next for me in life. Doing the same things over and over is so boring and predictable for me. In this journey, I want to experience many different things, so I can't be confined to just one job or one way of living."
