After Nargis Fakhri‘s sudden departure to New York, speculations were on the rise that Nargis had broken up with boyfriend Uday Chopra and had left due to a sudden nervous breakdown. After Nargis’ spokesperson denied the speculations and claimed she had left due to health reasons, it was Uday’s turn to shoot down the rumours.

Uday Chopra who has rubbished all these rumours took to twitter to respond to these allegations. In the tweet, he has addressed his lady love as “a close friend” and labelled the rumours as “untrue”.

He said, “I normally don’t respond to gossip, but the press has been reporting a lot of fiction disguised as fact. I would just like to clarify that Nargis and I have been and still are very close friends. The press has done a wonderful job of creating stories out of thin air and I applaud their creativity. However these are all untrue,” Indian media reported.

There were speculations that the actor refused to get married to her girlfriend Nargis and she couldn’t handle the heartbreak and leave for USA, but her spokesperson denied the rumours and said that her ill-health is the reason behind her recent visit to USA and she will be back soon.

He also issued similar clarifications on micro-blogging site Twitter, maintaining that him and Nargis were still ‘close friends’.

Sources say that exhaustion was the reason behind Nargis Fakhri’s departure and not Uday Chopra!

However, the actress’s spokesperson has a different story to tell. “She has been extremely overworked working on three films simultaneously over the last year. For someone who is used to doing one film at a time, this was quite a bit for her. In addition, she has been unwell right through the ‘Azhar’ promotions with multiple injuries – torn hamstring, anterior knee ligament thinning and mild socket dislocation along with burning of the stomach lining due to lead and arsenic poisoning. Due to these multiple issues and her overall exhaustion, she had a fever of about 101 degrees right through her promotions,” read the official statement by the spokesperson.

The representative added that, it was due to her deteriorating condition that she had to request Sajid Nadiadwala-producer of her next film ‘Houseful 3’ and bow out of its promotions to go back home to New York for a month to address all her medical issues and recuperate.

In ‘Azhar’, Fakhri portrays former cricketer and politician Muhammad Azharuddin’s second wife Sangeeta Bijlani. Next up, she will be seen in ‘Houseful 3’ and ‘Banjo’, and she will be back in action soon.

“She has no plans to leave B-Town and will be back to sets to complete the pending patchwork for her film ‘Banjo’ in the second week of June. In addition, she has already verbally agreed to two other projects for 2017 before she left and will complete the paperwork when she’s back. That coupled with her brand commitments that extend over multiple years, is testament of her being here to stay for good,” the spokesperson added.

Confirming that Fakhri left mid-way through the work for ‘Houseful 3’ due to her health, Sajid Nadiadwala said, “Our priority is Nargis’s health. We do hope that she recuperates fast and can be there around the release of the film as she is an integral part of ‘Houseful 3’ team”.
