After playing a feisty reporter in Madras Cafe, Nargis Fakhri will now be seen as a rich, spoilt brat in Main Tera Hero. Fakhri will be seen playing Ayesha, who is a don’s daughter. “Anupam Kher is my daddy and I am his little princess, who gets everything that she wants. At the same time she’s a bit naïve and sheltered even though she’s a don’s daughter. Her daddy takes care of everything, making sure that she’s safe. At the same time she’s endearing,” says Fakhri, adding that her character falls for her co-star, Varun Dhawan.
Though the actress had a good time playing Ayesha, she says it was not easy. Firstly, she didn’t know anything about being rich and spoilt and having an indulgent daddy, making it difficult for her to visualise how a child like that behaves. “While playing Ayesha, I added a bit of Nargis, who is not really bitchy. The hardest part was wearing those ultra glam clothes. Ayesha loves her fashion, accessories and hot pants, so all my clothes had to be sexy. Even though I am a model and I wear these clothes all the time, wearing them in front of the camera was different from walking down a runway. Also, it’s nerve wracking when so many people on the sets are staring at you,” she says.
Although she has several offers from Bollywood, the actress will look into them once she is back after shooting for her Hollywood film directed by Paul Feig, that starts next month
