Why did Nargis Fakhri’s efforts go in vain?

The Rockstar babe rehearsed for her item number despite an injury, but the song was canned in the last minute

We had earlier reported that Nargis Fakhri suffered bruises while performing for an item number for Shahid Kapoor-Ileana D’Cruz starrer Phata Poster Nikla Hero. Instead of taking it slow, the model-turned-actress went ahead and practiced her moves for an entire day with a bandage. While Ms Fakhri’s professionalism is impressive, we feel sorry for the lass ‘coz director Rajkumar Santoshi decided to eventually drop the song.

We hear an injured Nagris rehearsed for this number on Wednesday night as it had to be shot the very next day. But Rajkumar Santoshi wasn’t happy with the song and therefore opted for a new one. Poor Nargis worked hard for the earlier one but had to redo all her moves. The song was finally shot on Friday. Confirming the news, producer Ramesh Taurani said, “Yes, the song was changed. We recorded a special track for the trailer and decided to weave a new track around it.”

While we sympathise with Nargis, we believe in the saying ‘No pain, no gain’. After all when her dhamaakedar item song come out it will be Nargis who will have all the accolades no? So will Nargis beat Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra in the item race? Watch this space…
