Almost two years have passed since the release of her debut big screen outing ROCKSTAR. Now that Nargis Fakhri is returning with John Abraham starrer
MADRAS CAFE, one wonders how she looks back at the months gone by. Was it a period of anxiety, wait, euphoria, excitement or more?

'Two years? Wow, that's something; I never realised,' says Nargis in an animated tone, 'Well, the time just flew past by. After ROCKSTAR, it was all so overwhelming for me. I could never imagine or expect how my life could change so drastically. I spent quite some time contemplating whether I should really move to Mumbai for good.'

She did take the plunge though and while there was a waiting period involved before she signed her next, there were other activities related to the world of glamour that kept her occupied.

'I knew for sure that my life would change. I couldn't have been the same person as I was during ROCKSTAR. Meanwhile, I was engaged non-stop with script reading, advertisements, cover shoots, campaigns, shows and events. See, since I wasn't prepared as a person and as an actor, I had to educate myself. I took some Hindi classes as well. Everything that one can imagine, I prepared for. It was akin to going back to school.'

Meanwhile the very fact that she was being remembered and written about made her feel that she was doing something correct after all.

'Don't they say that any news is good news,' she laughs, 'If media was talking about me, it was fantastic. The fact that I was in there was a surprise for me too. Yes, some things written about me were untrue but then I can ignore that. Otherwise generally I took it all in a positive light. After all, if there are people out there who want to know more about it, it is good, isn't it?'
