After Ranbir Kapoor, first timer Nargis Fakhri is now eyeing Khans. Though the lady garnered a mixed critical response for herself with Ranbir, Nargis feels that it was a great experience nonetheless and now it is time to scale further heights.
''She hasn't signed any new film since ROCKSTAR and is presently going through a settling phase. She has a team around her which is working on ensuring that what she does next is something which is even bigger and better than her debut affair,' says a close associate of the actor, 'After doing a ROCKSTAR, she is in a position where she can neither afford to lie low nor pick up anything that comes her way. It has to be something substantial and the actors who top her wish list are none other than Khans.''
One wonders though whether her Khan dream would indeed realise soon. After all Aamir does only one film at a time and cast for his DHOOM 3 is already locked. Ditto for Shahrukh Khan who has Kareena Kapoor as his on-screen partner for the Rohit Shetty film which is rumoured to be titled CHENNAI EXPRESS.
Also, if Nargis comes out her Khan fascination then Akshay Kumar is another leading man who does films by dozens and hence always has slots available for newer leading ladies. With casting yet to be finalised for ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI 2 and KHILADI 786 - MADE IN PUNJAB, Nargis could well be trying her luck there as well.
Ask Nargis about how she wants to extend her wish-list of actors and she says, ''Of course whether it is Shahrukh, Salman, Aamir or any other Khan, I would like to work with them all. Each of these senior actors is so different and I am so much looking forward to making some more amazing films with them. Of course a script has to be great too but with these actors in, I am sure all else will fall in place.''
