Nargis Fakhri has revealed that she can read and speak Hindi now.

The former model was dubbed in her Bollywood debut Rockstar.

She told New Kerala: "Everything takes time, it doesn't happen like this. I was plucked out of the sky and put here. So, it's taking time but it's going well.

"I am really happy, I am reading and writing, which is great. So at least when I can read I am like, 'Yes, I can read'.

"I have been doing a lot of events, brands and magazines and I have also been reading a lot of scripts and I have taken my time. Now I have found something I really love. So it's all coming along. It's patience. If I want to do it, I'll do it. If I don't want to do it, I will not do it."

Fakhri will next be seen opposite Akshay Kumar in Khiladi 786.

In March, she said that criticism of her past performance has improved her acting skills.
