Born to a Pakistani father and a Czech mother, Fakri had a difficult childhood with her parents divorced and her mother never able to move on with her life without her father. Fakhri started working when she was 12 years of age and traveled the world - thanks to her modeling career. From an interview given to The Times of India, it seems that she was in love with traveling and modeling was just a means to an end. However after Rockstar, she knew that she would be tied to India for a long time.
Coming from a Pakistani family, Fakhri always felt a special affinity to India and its culture. Thus when she got an opportunity to work with Imtiaz Ali, she went for the narration of the script and cried listening to the story and her reaction shortlisted her as Heer Kaul, cast opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Rockstar. During her work in India, she became close to Ranbir Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali as well as got a friend in Neetu Kapoor.
Hopefully her fans would see more of her in Bollywood and she would be able to improve on her acting skills to have a long and good Hindi film career.
