Okay, so we know that Nargis Fakhri has been confirmed to play Akshay Kumar's heroine in his next film, which he's co-producing with Himesh Reshammiya


Interestingly, the model who made her debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor wasn’t the first choice for the Ashish R Mohan directed film. 

Reportedly, southside actress Ileana Da’Cruz had initially being confirmed for the part. Seems there’s more buzz about Ranbir and Priyanka Chopra, her co-stars in her upcoming maiden Hindi release.

So turning apprehensive about how she turns out in her Bollywood debut, the makers of the Akshay-Himesh joint production decided to rope in Nargis instead, considering that her film has released… never mind if her performance has been panned. Chalo, good for them.
