Nargis Fakhri Lashes Out At A Website For Body-Shaming And Spreading Pregnancy Rumours About Her12th January 2019
Being famous comes with its own set of pros and cons. On one hand, celebrities enjoy the privilege of receiving love and attention from so many people. At the same time, the same attention can turn their lives upside down as there are so many eyes constantly on them, scrutinizing them for every step they take, every word they speak or anything else that they do. Sometimes, some of them also become the prey to the gossipmongers who are passionate about spreading rumours even without checking the authenticity of the same. Well, one such celebrity who has very recently became the victim of such baseless rumours is Ranbir Kapoor’s Rockstar co-star Nargis Fakhri.
An entertainment portal recently did a story on whether the Madras Cafe actress is pregnant or not? Quoting a source from the film Nargis is working with currently, the report also stated that the actress kept taking breaks during the promotion of the film as she was constantly puking. It was also mentioned in the report that Nargis acted weirdly on the sets and was quite cranky as well. This infuriated the leggy lass and she took to Twitter to express her anger on the same. In a series of tweets, Nargis lashed out at the publications that wrote the pieces spreading rumours about her being pregnant. Here is what she wrote in her tweets:
“This is messed up. How can you write totally fake news & insulting me cuz I’ve gained weight- you are body shaming me. Whom ever wrote this has no idea &every word in this is a lie. Get your facts checks.”
Nargis also told the websites to take the articles down:
“You need to now also delete it from your online site. Who is this journo omair iqbal that works for you! Shame on him. What kind of person have you hired. He’s not even doing his job correctly @TheLive_Mirror @bollybubble”
She also slammed the reporter for body shaming her:
“Take this down @TheLive_Mirror your reporter published lies & not only that he has also body shamed a person that may actually be suffering from an illness. Get your facts right before u publish.”
The actress was trolled for gaining weight a while ago as well. Paying no heed to them she remained unaffected. On being asked about the same in one of her interviews, she said, “I don’t care or give a damn about criticism. We are too much in limelight. So, during my downtime, I like to be relaxed and not focus on these things.”
She also opened up about how she believed in minding her own business and she was not the one to get bothered by the trolls, “If someone thinks that I will get busted with trolls or criticism… Sorry, but it is not going to happen. I like being in an incognito mode until I have an opportunity to be back with a bang.”
Nargis, who once dated Uday Chopra, was last known to be in a relationship with the Australian Filmmaker Matt Alonzo. The actress even used to share adorable pictures of herself and Matt. However, all those lovey-dovey posts are gone from her Instagram handle which makes everyone wonder if the two are no longer together.
On the work front, Nargis is presently in India these days for promoting her upcoming film Amavas. She was recently spotted at the airport where she completely covered her face with a hoodie to avoid being clicked by the paparazzi.
