Mumbai: Actor Nargis Fakhri, who has reportedly left India in a hurry had revealed that she was actually fighting a life-threatening disease.
The actress who rush back to the United States is back in the city promoting her upcoming film Banjo.
In a recent interview with DNA, the 36-year-old actress spoke about battling a severe medical condition — arsenic and lead poisoning.
“When I came here, I had arsenic and lead poisoning and no one knew what was wrong with me. It can happen in many ways — it could be in the water, food, rusted lead pipes in an old building… The doctor tested me, but he was so scared because it was at a very high level and I asked him ‘What do I do?’
Then I cured myself. Ayurveda is based on naturopathy, herbs basically but it was a combination of different things that I researched and six months later I got the test done again and there was nothing! The doctor was like ‘Oh, my God! How did you do this?’ And I said I will tell you when I see you,” said the ‘Rockstar’ actress.
The reports furthered said that Nargis’s mother had also taken the help of Ayurveda when she was suffering from breast cancer. She had fibroids and the doctors wanted to cut her uterus, but she took herbs for 6 months and within six months, the fibroids were gone.
Nargis also spoke about marriage and love. “I am not into marriage. You look at all the marriages breaking down and all the people cheating on their marriages and you become cynical. Marriage is nothing but a label. Or when someone wants to have half of the assets of one’s spouse, but I have my own assets. I don’t need anyone else’s. I am an independent, educated woman, I make my own money, take care of my mom and I am single so I can do whatever I want, taking no one’s permission and that is the best part.”
