When Nargis got an upset stomach

Nargis Fakhri is gorgeous, sexy, and very entertaining. She is a foodie too and moderation is her secret. She talks about her food adventures in India and more.

Stomach trouble during Rockstar

When I was shooting for Rockstar (2011) with Ranbir Kapoor, I tried everything what was available on the set as well as wherever we shot on location — mainly in North India. Often, I would fall sick after eating. I ended up in the hospital at least six times during the shoot. It would play havoc with my system. My body doesn't agree with food that is heavy on my stomach, but it never stopped me from trying.

I had a great time shooting for Madras Cafe (2013) with John Abraham. It was awesome as we shot in south India. From the idlis to the spicy sambhar and red hot chutneys, I devoured them all.

Main Tera Hero juice detox

By that time, my system could withstand all types of food. Main Tera Hero (2014) with Varun Dhawan and Ileana D'Cruz was shot in Thailand. I admire Thai food, so of course ate everything — whether it was a fiery bowl of Tom Yum soup or Kai Med Ma Muang (Chicken with cashew nuts). During the shoot of Main Tera Hero, I also went on a juice diet for six days. It is a detox diet where you consume only fresh fruit and vegetable juices. I had always wanted to try it out. In six days, I lost three kilos. Most people do it for a day or two though.

Pizza girl

Staying in Mumbai by myself, made me a cook. I do not cook Indian food, although I did learn a few dishes. I enjoy grains and pulses and trying out new dishes. I am more into salads, pastas and pizzas. I prefer the prosciutto flat bread pizza drizzled with olive oil. It is light and healthier. I do not eat out too much any more though my favourite haunts are Joss, Wasabi, Smoke House Deli and Pizza Metro Pizza in Mumbai.
