- Uday Chopra dismissed rumours of a break up with Nargis Fakhri
- It was reported that Uday and Nargis had broken up over WhatsApp
- Uday Chopra was last seen in Dhoom: 3
In a tweet on Wednesday, Mr Chopra said the rumours are untrue but also that he and Ms Fakhri are simply 'close friends' - we did say it was an update of sorts.
Ok so it had to come to this... @NargisFakhri and I are close friends and all the rumors that are doing the rounds have no basis in reality— Uday Chopra (@udaychopra) May 18, 2016
The rumours referred to had the couple break up over WhatsApp and Ms Fakhri leaving for New York after Mr Chopra cancelled their wedding (apparently she also had a nervous breakdown) - none of this happened, says Uday Chopra.
Nargis Fakhri's film Azhar released last Friday and her absence at promotional events was explained away as exhaustion due to overwork.
"Nargis has been extremely overworked working on three films simultaneously over the last year. For someone who is used to doing one film at a time, this was quite a bit for Nargis. In addition, she has been unwell right through the Azhar promotions with multiple injuries - torn hamstring, anterior knee ligament thinning and mild socket dislocation along with burning of the stomach lining due to lead and arsenic poisoning. Due to these multiple issues and her overall exhaustion, she had a fever of about 101 degrees right through her promotions," read an official statement from the actress' spokesperson.
Uday Chopra, 43, is the star of films like Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, Mujhse Dosti Karoge!, Dhoom and Pyaar Impossible!. He was last seen in Dhoom: 3 and now heads a division of Yash Raj Films.
Meanwhile, Nargis Fakhri, 36, will soon be seen in Housefull 3.
