I am in awe of Salman Khan: Nargis Fakhri

New Delhi: After matching steps with Salman Khan in a special song from the upcoming film `Kick`, model-actress Nargis Fakhri says she was bowled over by the superstar`s personality and energy.

The 34-year-old beauty said she was nervous initially to shake a leg with the `Dabangg` star. "It was ecstatic to work with Salman but at the same time I was nervous because he is one of the biggest stars of the industry and I thought I would mess-up everything on the set.

"But once I got to the set and met him all those worries faded away. He has an amazing sense of humour and imparted so much positivity. I am in awe of Salman. I had a great time with him and the entire team of the film," Nargis said.

The item number `Yaar Na Mile` is composed by rapper Honey Singh and is choreographed by Ahmed Khan. While rehearsing for the edgy dance number, Nargis had been nursing a ruptured knee ligament and a torn hamstring injuries but that did not deter the `Rockstar` actress from giving her best shot.

"It was extremely painful but I didn`t let the golden opportunity go from my hand. So, I managed somehow to get it complete in four days because I did not want to let go the opportunity," she said.

This would be the actress` second item number after `Dhating Naach` with Shahid Kapoor in `Phata Poster Nikla Hero`. But Nargis says she would now stay away from such special numbers because she might get typecast as an item girl.

"I don`t want to be known as an item dancer. I want to be known as an actress only. Dance is something which I like to do but acting is my passion. I would like to do good and meaty roles. I am in talks with directors also but nothing has been finalised yet," she said.
