Nargis Fakhri talks about her role in 'Madras Cafe' and the research that went into it
In 'Madras Cafe', Nargis Fakhri plays an international journalist  who enjoys direct access to the leader of the most influential rebel group  in Sri Lanka. It wasn't an easy role as she had to tread the jungles in heavy rain and shoot under trying circumstances, even ending up with high fever for a few days. A lot of research went in to get the character right. Right from scrounging the internet to actually meeting some journalist, Nargis put in  hours of research for her character.
