Bollywood star Nargis Fakhri is known for being bold, outspoken and drop-dead gorgeous. The actor recently opened up on her relationship with actor Uday Chopra, terming him someone who “will be a part of me for the rest of my life”.

According to The Indian Express, when asked whether she is currently dating Chopra, she replied, “He is the most amazing human being who I have ever met in my entire life not just in India but around the world. If anyone is his friend, that person is lucky to have him in his life.” Adding that the two are “just friends”, Fakhri confirmed that she is still single.

Skill more important than notoriety: Fakhri

On her plans of settling down, the Rockstar actor said that women these days are lucky as they get to choose when they wish to marry. “We should take advantage of living our lives to the fullest before we think of settling down with a dude and being in the kitchen.” The actor further added that Indian men are clueless when it comes to dating and they often use the most clichéd pick-up lines to impress women. According to Fakhri, it is essential for the man that she eventually settles down with, to be classy, with proper etiquettes on how a woman should be treated. “Take me out for a nice dinner. I am old school. You are going to hold the door for me. And before I sit down, you better stand and wait for me to sit. Guys don’t do that anymore.”

On the work-front, Fakhri is anticipating the release of upcoming biopic Azhar, based on the life of Indian cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, in which she will be seen essaying the role of Sangeeta Bijlani, famous former Bollywood actor and the cricketer’s second wife.
