Nargis Fakhri is apparently scared of everything in Mumbai, even the air she breathes. It was in May that the actress had left the city to move to USA. She stayed there for close to the months citing health issues. The actress returned in August and gave a statement that she had fallen ill because of arsenic and lead poisoning.


And even though she is fine now and is busy promoting her film, ‘Banjo,’ she is still very scared that she might fall ill again. Nargis has been allegedly blaming Mumbai’s polluted water and unhygienic food as the cause of her ill-health. She is paranoid.

Says a source, “Nargis is scared that she will fall ill again. She has become obsessed with her health and gets finicky even if she is attending work-related meetings in posh restaurants or 5-star hotels. You will find her holding on to her bottle of water, as if it’s an oxygen cylinder. She even covers her mouth everywhere she goes. Probably she fears a viral attack all the time. People who don’t know about her paranoia find her behaviour very disrespectful and demeaning.”

We wish for her speedy recovery and hope she gets over her paranoia soon. After all, we still have to see a lot of her in the movies.
