Meanwhile, a member of Twitterati said Katrina and Nargis can easily be confused as each other for being "beautiful in their own ways." "Yeah you both look quite similar and both of you are beautiful in your own ways...Keep shining Nargis." Umm, well, Nargis had a reply to that as well.

Nargis Fakhri is one of those celebrities who help fans keep up with her through social media posts. Last seen in Banjo, she has not announced her next project yet but keeps her Instagram diary updated with what's going on in her life. In July, she starred in four films - Azhar, Banjo and Housefull 3 along with a small role in Dishoom - after which it was reported that she has taken a sabbatical from Bollywood due to exhaustion.
However, in an interview to PTI this year, she said she also wants to involve herself in projects outside the world of cinema: "Acting is not the only thing...I want to do a lot in life. When you are on sets you are always acting you are not interacting with people in life and not learning anything new. There is so much more to learn and do different things in life. I want to balance things by doing acting and other things."
Meanwhile, Katrina Kaif is looking forward to the release of Anurag Basu-directed Jagga Jasoos, her third film with rumoured ex Ranbir Kapoor.
