Nargis-Fakhri

Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri says as a child she could not take any music lessons as she grew up “really poor.”
In her upcoming film “Banjo”, the 36-year-old actress plays a DJ from New York, who comes to Mumbai to find local talent and make music with them.

“For me, I regret being really poor growing up so I couldn’t afford to take lessons. That was really sad. I believe playing an instrument is something really beautiful and a great talent,” the actress told reporters here.

Nargis, who made her debut with “Rockstar”, said she started learning acoustic guitar after her first film. “I didn’t have people around to inspire me. But after my first film, I got inspired to try the acoustic guitar. It’s hard for me, but I still try. I have three of them at home and I pick it up once in a while,” she said.

Directed by Ravi Jadhav, the musical drama features Riteish Deshmukh as a Banjo player. Nargis said she came on board for the film as she instantly connected with the story. “For me, it was the story. There was a lot of soul and depth. It addressed something I thought was very beautiful.
