Nargis Fakhri's effort goes in vain
An injured Nargis Fakhri had to rehearse for her dance number only to have it changed the next day
This seems to be a case of much ado about nothing. Nargis Fakhri spent an entire day with her leg in a bandage for a music track that was eventually struck off, after director Rajkumar Santoshi didn’t approve of it. According to sources, Nargis had been suffering from a muscle pull.
A unit hand says, “The actress rehearsed for her item number on Wednesday night as it had to be shot the next day. But Santoshi didn’t like the song and it was dropped the next day.” Apparently, Nargis had to do her act all over again on Thursday night and it was filmed on Friday.
Producer Ramesh Taurani says, “Yes, the song was changed. We recorded a special track for the trailer and decided to weave a new track around it. We didn’t have any conflict with Rajji on the music.” Santoshi remained unavailable for comment.
