Nargis Fakhri, who has been doing some vigorous Bollywood dancing for David Dhawan’s film Tu Mera Hero, has injured herself. Says the actress, “Yes, I hurt my neck and knee. I was trying so hard to get it right. But it’s okay. No pain, no gain. The heaving, thrusting, butt-moving is fun.” While bumping and grinding her way through the alien moves in the song she has managed to hurt herself quite seriously. The actress could not move her arms and shoulders and would wince every time she had to cavort, wriggle and heave.
And though she has hurt herself, Nargis appears to be enjoying herself. She said, “Before I began rehearsing for this song with Varun Dhawan for Main Tera Hero, I did a song with Shahid Kapoor in Phata Poster Nikla Hero. The terminology ‘item song’ is new to me. When people say a girl is doing an item song they mean it in a not-so-nice way. Bollywood dancing is as alien to me as Hindi. But I am just enjoying learning it. There is a lot of heaving and thrusting which I found difficult at first. But I was okay with it after a while.”
