"Nargis was present at the trailer launch on January 5, post which a string of interviews and promotional appearances on reality shows were lined up for the next 10 days. While she did her round of interviews on January 6 and 7, she refused to answer questions regarding her alleged break-up with Matt Alonzo, and the supposed rekindling of romance between Uday Chopra and her. Her tantrums started over the next two days - during one of the interviews, presumably irritated by the press prying into her personal life, she back-answered a reporter when asked about Uday. She also cancelled a few interviews that were slated for January 9,” a source was quoted as saying by the daily.

Nargis and her Amavas co-star Sachiin Joshi were supposed to promote their film on the talent show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa but she skipped it while the team has been requesting her to return, sources said, she hasn’t responded as yet.  The makers, thus, rescheduled the release date of the film because Nargis left all so suddenly. "The film was earlier scheduled to release on January 18. But the makers postponed it because they felt it would benefit from her presence at promotions,” the source added.

Meanwhile, spokesperson for the production house of Amavas, also confirmed the news to the daily and said, "Nargis was supposed to stay back in India till January 15, but she left on January 11. She refused to inform us about it. Since then, we have been trying to reach her and get her dates, (but she) hasn't given any clarification on her availability."

Nargis Fakhri is the star of films Rockstar, Madras Café, Main Tera Hero, Azhar and Banjo.
