Nargis Fakhri auditioned for America’s Next Top Model 12 years ago – See Video

Nargis auditioned and gained entry into the America’s Next Top Model, but eventually got eliminated. She did audition for Season 2 as well.

Nargis Fakhri, who appeared on Koffee with Karan in 2014 said that she is goofy inside even though her personality illuminates of being sexy. Well! We couldn’t agree more with the Fakhri, who debuted into Bollywood starring opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Rockstar, 2011. After her debut which was not legendary, but one thing was for sure, Fakhri was here to stay for long. But not many know what Nargis was upto, 7 years prior to her feat in Bollywood. And, now internet has the answer. Nargis auditioned for America’s Next Top Model in 2004 and her 12-years-old audition clip has resurfaced and going viral.

Apparently, gorgeous looking Fakhri has always been the beautiful she is. However, she appears to be nervous and fumbling, the time she appeared for the her audition infront of Tyra Banks, a super model herself. Banks have been associated with the American reality television show for long. When Fakhri, walked in for her audition, she didn’t had answers or probably lost track of her thoughts. When asked why she want to be a model, Nargis said she only sees it like ‘just a job’ and doesn’t know how to redeem herself at other things. Tyra Banks and the other judges on Sesaon 3 of America’s Next Top Model, were not much impressed with Fakhri’s answer and felt she lacks what it takes to be a model. Seems hard to believe, after her outgoing replies on Koffee with Karan. Guess, it is just matter of time.


Though Nargis’s ‘great body’ didn’t go unnoticed from the eyes of the judges. Nargis gained entry into the show, but eventually got eliminated in the semifinals. She did audition for Season 2 as well.

Nargis, who was recently seen in Banjo opposite Riteish Deshmukh, has done lot of Bollywood projects under big banners and opposite names like, Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Emraan Hashmi. The actress also has a Hollywood project 5 Weddings, slated to release in 2017.

Nargis’s audition clip and her current line of work stretching from movies to magazine cover, certainly gives us hope and teenage is just a phase. The beautiful actress has come a long way since then and is worth every praise.
