Nargis Fakhri has shared screen space with Oscar-nominated actress Melissa McCarthy in her first crossover project Spy. Elated by the opportunity, the actress says it was a privilege to team up with the Hollywood icon.

“Being able to work alongside such a talented and influential actor as Melissa in my first Hollywood movie is a moment I feel blessed to have had,” Nargis said.

The Rockstar actress can be seen in an action avatar in the film, and she also has a funny food fight scene.

She points out that she had a lot of fun while shooting the fight sequence for the action comedy.

“She (McCarthy) was great around the set and our chemistry on screen made our fight scene really special,” said Nargis, who has been a part of Hindi films like Main Tera Hero and Madras Cafe.

Nargis considers Spy director Paul Feig, who has also helmed films like The Heat and Bridesmaids, as her guiding force in the international world of cinema.

“I think being directed and mentored by someone as inspirational as Paul Feig not only improves my performance but as a whole makes it what it is,” the actress said.
