The 34-year-old actress, whose role of a war correspondent in her last film 'Mardas Cafe' opposite John Abraham was appreciated, believes that wearing a two-piece in one film does not obligate one to put it in the next one.
"As an actor you are supposed to experience everything. Just because you worn a bikini in one movie does not mean you have to wear it in the next one. Why would someone be typecast?" said Fakhri. "In 'Madras Cafe', I had an earthy role and no bikini shots. So I think it's nice to have variety and that people get to see me in all sorts," said the actress who was in the city to launch Reebok's first all women staffed "Fit Hub" concept store.
The actress, who is just two films old, is grateful to have got the chance to work big names like Ranbir Kapoor and Abraham. "In the beginning I did not know who I was working with because I was naive, but now when I see this trend for me, I am actually very thankful because one does not get this opportunity easily," Fakhri said. "For someone who has appeared out of thin air, God really must be blessing me.
I believe that there is definitely a higher power out there, that if you are a good person in life, you will be blessed," she added. The Pakistani-American origin actress said it was hard to deal with cultural differences initially.
"The struggle is super hard, not only because I don't know anyone in the industry but also because there is a huge cultural difference. It was real tough to adjust to the lifestyle change.
The city I am living in is very busy, too many people, illusions, no friends and no family. It has been tough," she added. David Dhawan's 'Main Tera Hero', which is a multi starrer film, has Varun Dhawan as the lead.
The actress, who would be seen in a new avatar in the movie, made good friends during the filming. "Everything got along so well that it kind of felt like I was hanging out with group of friends and working. I kind of forgot that I was working because there were so much fun," she said. 'Main Tera Hero' will hit big screens next year.
