Nargis said that she is working towards weight loss by making 'healthy lifestyle choices'. The actress wrote an inspiring caption about her phenomenal transformation, "Living life in the public eye can be very difficult sometimes. As much as it is a blessing, it also comes with its downside. Over the last 2 years, I’ve gained weight. On the left, I weighed 178 lbs (80.7 kg) and on the right, I was 129 lbs (58.5kg). I have since lost 20 lbs through making lifestyle changes. If I can do it, so can you. Nurture your mind, body, and soul with positive thoughts and healthy choices. I’m going to bring you on this journey of becoming the best version of myself again, and I want you to join me on this journey too."

Nargis received several compliments from her friends who supported and cheered her.

While it's important to become the best version of yourself, we believe that that it's all about loving your body no matter what. When Nargis received multiple comments from her fans on shedding weight, the actress assured them that she undertook the journey to become 'fit' and not skinny.

She added, "It's not about being skinny, it's about becoming a stronger and healthier version of myself mentally and physically. There are no rules to what is considered a beautiful body, but it's important to be mentally and physically balanced."

A couple of days back, Twitter was abuzz with rumours indicating that the actress is expecting a baby with boyfriend Matt Alonzo. Nargis, however, refuted the reports and slammed the publication house for promoting fake news and body shaming her.

She expressed her disappointment through a series of Twitter posts while asking the publication to take down the article. She claimed that every word in the article was a blatant lie, "This is messed up. How can you write totally fake news & insulting me cuz I’ve gained weight - you are body shaming me. Whoever wrote this has no idea and every word in this is a lie. Get your facts checked."

The 39-year-old Pakistani-American actress is an absolute stunner and is a big crowd puller on Instagram. From sexy beachwear to pretty dresses, Nargis' wardrobe is fashion goals.
