When Nargis Fakhri was mistaken for Katrina Kaif


Actress Nargis Fakhri was recently mistaken for Katrina Kaif. Sharing the experience on Twitter, the ‘Banjo’ actress said that a man walked up to her mistaking her for Katrina, but when she corrected him, he wanted to take a picture with her because she looked like the ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ actress. Nargis described it as “weird.”

In a series of tweets, Nargis wrote, “A man just said 'Hi, Katrina can I take a pic?' I said 'thanks but I'm not her.' He said 'oh, ok I'll take a pic of you anyway cuz you look like her."

"Amazing how people just go ahead and take a picture of you not knowing who you are, even when you say no, they do it anyway. So weird. Humans," the actress added.

Meanwhile, a twitterati said Katrina and Nargis can easily be confused with each other as both of them have a lot of resemblance between them. Commenting on Nargis’ tweet, the user wrote, "Yeah you both look quite similar and both of you are beautiful in your own ways...Keep shining Nargis."

Nargis had a reply to that as well. She responded by tweeting, “Yeah, brown hair, brown eyes, fair skin & tall..easily can b mistaken.it’s a compliment. Nothing better than being mistaken 4 a beautiful woman.”

The actress’ ‘Banjo’ co-star Riteish Deshmukh and dancer Lauren Gottlieb of ‘ABCD’ fame also commented on Nargis’ post. “welcome to India,” wrote Riteish, while Lauren posted a few face-palming emojis.

Nargis, who was last seen in ‘Banjo’ has forayed into music and is all set to make her singing debut with Punjabi singer-composer Parichay and Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall for her first single titled ‘Habitaan Vigaad Di’.
