New Delhi: The “Rockstar” fame actress, Nargis Fakhri will be playing the role of Sangeeta Bijlani, the second wife of cricketer and former Indian team Captain Mohammad Azharuddin in the biopic on the latter titled “Azhar”.

Asked if she has taken some tips from the former actress, Nargis said: “I’m just working on myself and shooting outdoors. I’m not sure about the tips.”

Fakhri, who works hard to maintain her fit frame, also says that she won’t gain weight even if a character requires it.

“Gaining or losing weight is more to do with guys and not girls. I would like to be more fit, but I don’t think I will put on fat or gain weight for movie roles. I am not going to do that,” the actress told IANS on the sidelines of the opening of Reebok’s new store in the capital.

The actress not only entertained the audience at the store with some combat training routine here on Wednesday, but also tore through a Reebok backdrop and revealed the new store to fans and fellow fitness enthusiasts gathered around.

Nargis, who was also part of films like “Madras Cafe”, “Phata Poster Nikhla Hero” and Hollywood film “Spy”, is currently busy shooting for the biopic.
