Nargis Fakhri rose to fame after starring opposite Ranbir Kapoor in ‘Rockstar’. She is known for films like ‘Madras Cafe’, ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’, and ‘Main Tera Hero’. Generally a private person, Nargis revealed she finds it odd when people ask her about her dating life. The actress was once in the news for dating actor-producer Uday Chopra. She was later rumoured to be dating Kashmir-born, US-based entrepreneur Tony Beig. However, when asked about it, the actor said, “I’m single until there’s a ring on my finger. That is my only comment.”

Now, speaking in a new interview, Nargis talked about her private life and said, “I’m honest and authentic, and I don’t see a problem if people ask me about my personal life. But the issue is that they highlight that instead of important stuff like work. I’m not embarrassed or shy about talking about my personal life. But to be honest, I would rather highlight my work.”

She added, “There are some people who deny or don’t talk about their (love lives) but that’s also fine, we need to respect their privacy. This business is very strange. So what’s left for me? I need to be given something that’s only for me.”

She blamed internet for breaching actors privacy and said, “Even the phone knows what we think because they register our keystrokes. Social media knows what we usually look at. The internet has distorted the definition of privacy. It feels like we're almost naked. I feel annoyed sometimes thinking why do people care about who I date? But I try to be nice about it.”

Nargis was last seen in ‘Torbaaz’, which got streamed on Netflix in 2020. The film starred Sanjay Dutt, Rahul Dev, Rahul Mittra among others. The film was directed by Girish Malik.
