Nargis Fakhri: I’m learning about the Maharashtrian culture


Actress  Nargis Fakhri is elated to involve herself with Maharashtrian food, music and people for her role in film Banjo which also stars Riteish Deshmukh.

“I really love my character. I play an NRI who is coming from America, so I can totally understand all the issues that she goes through. So I feel very close to the character, and so it’s been a lot of fun remembering all things that have happened to me when I arrived in Mumbai.

 “I identify with her very much. There are many similarities,” informed Nargis at a press meet to introduce the film.

She also expressed surprise that she had never seen the kind of places they were shooting at.

“Another thing that makes me really happy is that I’m learning about the Maharashtrian culture, the food, the music, and the people. For me, this entire film and the people working on it, and where we’re at, all of it is amazing,” the actress mentioned.

The film marks the Hindi film debut of well-known Marathi director Ravi Jadhav, who has earlier made popular films such as “Natarang”, “Balak-Palak”, “Timepass” among others. The film traces the story of banjo players from Maharashtra and how the relevance of the art is vanishing nowadays.

“When I heard the story, it was one of those stories that touch your heart and you feel so much for it. I’m very happy to be a part of the film and of course with Riteish it’s great because he is a fantastic actor and a fantastic human being, and that’s very important to me,” she added.

Nargis and Riteish will also be seen together in Housefull 3.
