Mumbai: Swimsuit model tunred actress Nargis Fakhri might have gone unnoticed after her ‘Rockstar’ co-star Ranbir Kapoor stole the entire show, but there is someone who gave her the much needed attention!

Akshay Kumar approached the girl for his upcoming flick ‘Khiladi 786’, which will be produced by the hunk and music director Himesh Reshammiya.

Talking to a leading tabloid, a source said, “She will be donning ultra-glam clothes in the film. It`s a very sexy avatar.”

“She is very happy. It was not easy for her after ‘Rockstar’ where Ranbir got all the praise. Khiladi 786 is not a small film. Moreover, Akshay has had a big hit in ‘Housefull 2’ only recently. All this adds to her excitement,” the source added.

Who knows, Nargis might emerge as one of the most sought after actress post ‘Khiladi 786’! After all, Akshay and Salman Khan were the ones who brought Katrina Kaif’s career back on tracks.

So watch out guys!
