Mumbai: Actor Uday Chopra says he shares a “close” friendship with Nargis Fakhri amid reports that the “Azhar” actress has gone back to her home in New York post their split.
While Uday, 43, and Nargis have always stayed mum on their relationship status, the reports of them being a couple have been doing the rounds for a few years now.
Recent reports, however, said that Nargis left the country after failing to deal with her break-up from Uday.
Branding the media reports “untrue”, Uday today issued a statement, saying, “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.”
Nargis’ spokesperson had released a statement saying that bad health and a few injuries forced the actress to take a break from work and go home.
According to her spokesperson, Nargis will be back in action after a month.
