Mumbai, June 12 :
Actor-producer Uday Chopra has often been linked to actress Nargis Fakhri, but he likes to stick to the usual “she is just a friend” or simply dodge the question.
When asked about his rumoured girl friend Nargis, he told IANS: “This is a mandatory question asked to me and my mandatory answer is no comments. She is just a friend of mine and I don’t want to say anything more.”
The 41-year-old had even joked about their alleged relationship some time back by posting a picture on Twitter in which he was seen posing with a mug that has a picture of Nargis on it, stating: “Who is this @NargisFakhri that everyone keeps linking me with… I’ve never heard of her.”
Sport is religion: John Abraham

“I love sport, and I think sport is religion. If you see me, I am an outdoor person. I believe I live a very healthy lifestyle. And I just want to make sure that all the youngsters of today lead a lifestyle like this, and don’t do drugs… don’t do things that harm your body.
“Be focussed on being a better human being, better sports people for tomorrow,” he told IANS.
The “Madras Cafe” star has bought the Guwahati franchise of the Indian Super League and his home production “1911”, to be directed by Shoojit Sircar, will see him reprise late Indian footballer Sibdas Bhaduri on the big screen.
