I was referred to as immature: Nargis claimed that she received this label because she was sincere and open about her emotions. Even if you don’t want to or feel comfortable doing so, you must engage with people. You need to put on a face, which I couldn’t do. The actress continued, “But now I realize there are really three faces: a business face, a creative face, and then your face. Nargis said that she was unaccustomed to fame and attention and that it occasionally exhausted her.

Speaking further, the actress admitted that there was a moment when she struggled with her mental health. According to the Main Tera Hoon Hero actor, she worked so hard for eight years that she rarely had any time for her family. “I experienced health problems as a result of stress. I was miserable and depressed. I thus took two years off to improve my health,” Nargis was reported as adding.
