• In 2019, a report circulated on media that Nargis abandoned the promotions of the film “Amavas” (2019) mid-way and left the country. Reportedly, she was outraged by media’s questions on her personal life (break up with Matt Alonzo and Uday Chopra). Clearing her stance in the controversy, Nargis said, “The entire experience promoting this film, albeit brief, has been extremely taxing because of their (producer Sachin Joshi and the film’s team) total lack of communication and planning. They were given seven days for promotions by my team well in time which they used. So I don’t know where this debate about my leaving early etc comes in. To be honest, I wasn’t informed about the film’s release being pushed nor was I updated on their promotional plans and activities. Despite that, I ensured I was present and promoting the film within the mutually agreed upon time. And now, seeing them release statements like that about my professional commitment is something that is extremely disheartening and unacceptable when it’s the film team who haven’t held up their end of the bargain.”
• In 2015, a leading Pakistani newspaper, Jang, published an advertisement of Nargis for Pakistani mobile carrier, Mobilink. Following this, Pakistanis showed their resentment on social media, where they called the advertisement cheap and absurd. Many people including journalists, condemned the obscenity of the advertisement that showed Nargis in a red dress, lying down with a phone in her hand. • In 2014, it was reported that she was honoured with the Gaurd of Honour by the Special Tiger Protection Force (STPF) for her campaign for endangered tigers. However, this made wildlife conservationists furious, as the award was meant to be given out to only ministers or high ranking officers.
