Did You Know? Nargis Fakhri Auditioned for America's Top Model before making it big in Bollywood!

Nargis Fakhri is hogging the limelight these days! What if we tell you that this model-turned actress who has become an integral part of Bollywood today and has got oodles of confidence & a quirky sense of humour and style was once just a nervous girl-next-door, trying to make it big in the show biz? Won't believe us? Well it's true. There's a video of her's which is breaking the web these days. It's a video from some 12 years ago, which seems to have been resurrected the internet these days. And in this video, this Bollywood actress is auditioning for America's Next Top model cycle 3. In this 2004 video which surfaced all of a sudden shows a young and nervous Nargis trying to impress the judges that included Tyra Banks too, despite fumbling while introducing herself.

We all know, before making it big in Bollywood, Nargis Fakhri was a Kingfisher Calendar girl. But what we didn't know is that she was an aspiring model who auditioned for America's Next Top Model twice and evicted both the times. Thanks to her dream role in Imtiaz Ali's Ranbir Kapoor starrer, Rockstar, Nargis got an instant fame in Bollywood. But she has had her fair share of struggle. Once on Koffee With Karan, she revealed that she's had a hard life and she had tried a lot of things to survive, including modelling. In this audition video, she is seen desperately looking for a job. But she got eliminated because she apparently did not really have the drive for modelling. Well, looking at her now, the lady has surely come a long way!

Nargis made a mark in Bollywood with her first film, rockstar itself. Though the film belonged to Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis was noticed and got mixed reviews for her performance as Heer, a fun- loving and outgoing girl who is the undisputed diva of the college campus and has broken many hearts. She has ever since been doing glamorous roles in films like Main Tera Hero, Housefull 3 and Azhar. She was critically acclaimed for her mature performance in the political thriller Madras Cafe in 2013. She played the role of Jaya – a war correspondent in the film in this film. Last year, she also made her Hollywood debut with an action comedy, Spy. In this film she was cast alongside some big names like Jason Statham, Jude Law and Melissa McCarthy.
