3. Nargis started working at the age of 15, teaching arts, crafts and ceramics at a summer camp to children. Initially, she was pursuing a degree in psychology and fine arts and wanted to be a teacher. But during her final year, she realised her desire to explore the world, and ventured into modelling to satiate her wanderlust. 

4. She participated in America's top model and had a pretty successful modelling career. Apparently, she wasn't much aware about Bollywood and became interested in the industry only after she was offered Rockstar by Imtiaz Ali. 

5. The actor is a self-confessed foodie and loves to binge on red velvet cake, gulab jamuns, kheer, bengali sweets. Nargis is quite an adventurous foodie and has apparently eaten crazy stuff like chocolate-covered ants, snails, alligators, frogs, etc.
