Let us introduce to the husband of Bollywood's much talked about lady Nargis Fakhri, who makes her debut with film ROCKSTAR, Moufid Aziz. Well before you come to any conclusion it's the reel husband which we are talking about. Yes the newbie Moufid, who hails from Brazil, plays Nargis' businessman husband in the film ROCKSTAR. Well Shocked? So are we!
So far we just heard about Ranbir & Nargis' romantic pairing and the entire promotion was concentrated on the duo, however as the film is about to release the makers letting the cat out of the bag introduces the new character from the film, who probably is the twist in the tale.
NARGIS FAKHRI and MOUFID AZIZ
When asked about this last minute surprise element the model-turned actor, Moufid reveals, "Well the surprise thing was planned that way - just at the moment of release. And anyway, in India everything is about hero heroine," Ask Moufid did it bother him that he was not a part of the huge promotions of the film and he says, "I always knew about it in advance. It was designed that way so it's fine. So it didn't bother me."
In fact he is happy to have worked with big names in his very first film and considers himself lucky. Says Moufid, "I am feeling great. I am happy that in my first film I got the opportunity to work with Bollywood biggies like Imtiaz, Ranbir." Ask the handsome hunk how he bagged such a big project and he discloses, "Actually I auditioned for the role at Ashtavinayak Studio. It wasn't easy to get through as Hindi is not my language. But eventually after rigorously rehearsing and taking classes in diction I made it and became a part of it. However, I never expected that I'll bag the project. Call it my luck I gave a shot for the very first film and I was selected."
The Brazilian boy before settling in India has traveled to various countries and did numerous fashion shows and modeling. So what really made the guy choose India as his Home? Moufid replies, "I love Indian people. They are very helpful, natural and simple. Also I have lots of friends here."
Instead of showing insecurity with Ranbir getting all the attention, Moufid is all praise of the actor. In fact he says that they hit it off well, "There's nothing to be jealous about. I have nothing to complain about myself. With a bigger role he deserves to be there. Ranbir is a fantastic actor, very professional, very focused and a polite guy. He's very quiet on the sets. He's got amazing sense of humour. We got along well."
With Nargis he connects well as the duo share a lot in common. Says Moufid, "Both Nargis and I share a lot in common. We both come from modeling world; both have a problem with Hindi. We have friends all over the world. Nargis is fun to work with, she is simple. She doesn't try to do any show offs."
As far as future projects are concerned, Moufid hasn't signed on anything new but he wishes to clear about the misconception that people have about outsiders. "Some people think outsiders like me are here only to say Hi and bye. As a beginner they don't take you seriously. But I would like to state I am absolutely serious about Bollywood. And I'll show it through my work," says Moufid on a parting note.
