I wanna go to Rome in April @NargisFakhri wanna join me?— Uday Chopra (@udaychopra) February 2, 2017
Ahead of the release of Nargis Fakhri's 2016 film Azhar, the actress was missing from most of the promotional duties, sparking rumours that she suffered a nervous breakdown after Mr Chopra called off their impending wedding. Nargis apparently was away in New York. Uday Chopra tweeted saying that all of this is untrue and added that he and Nargis are just "close friends."
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
Meanwhile, Nargis was also shooting for the films Housefull 3 and Banjo. An official statement on behalf of the actress said she was "exhausted" because of work. "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 the statement.
Uday Chopra, 44, was last seen in Dhoom 3 and Nargis Fakhri, 37, last starred in Banjo opposite Ritesh Deshmukh.
