Nushrat Bharucha Gets Candid About Dream Girl, Ayushmann Khurana And Rajkummar Rao
GLOBAL MOVIE MAGAZINE|October 2019
Petit, gorgeous, smart and very sure of herself are some of the words that best describe Nushrat Bharucha. The actress made her debut in in 2006 with the film Jai Santoshi Maa and first got in the spotlight for her bold role in Dibakar Banerjee’s Love Sex Aur Dhokha. Since that point, Nushrat has come a long way. She tasted box-office success with Luv Ranjan’s Pyaar Ka Punchnama series and has never looked back since. Nushrat is currently flying high after her last release Dream Girl in which she is paired opposite Ayushmann Khurrana has opened to an amazing response. The talented actress spoke about her current mindspace and much more in an exclusive interview with Filmfare. Read on…

Currently you’re in a great space in your career. You’ve proved that you can deliver at the box-office and have some interesting projects lined up. So how do you feel about your position right now?

I’m very elated. I’m very thankful. I feel blessed. I feel like all those years of questioning and struggling and wondering what’s going to happen... suddenly all those pieces just get into place. When we did Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety, we did not expect the film will do the kind of numbers it did. Similarly, with Dream Girl. None of us thought it’ll have a dream run like that. It’s amazing that people have given that kind of love and appreciation. None of us could’ve predicted this in the beginning. It was a leap of faith. It was instincts that we all went on.

It was a concept that has never been attempted in Bollywood before.

So, when I heard the narration, in that one hour... I never went back and thought about it and I never came back with any other conversations. I instantly said I wanted to do it. The narration went on for an hour, post that I sat for 15 minutes in the office and told them I want to do the film. The casting director was there and even the director Raaj Shaandilyaa was there, they were like, “Ho gaya?” I said, “Haa done. Aap Ekta (Kapoor) se baat kar lijiye contract draw karalejiye.. khatam ho gaya. Sign kar leti hoon main.” I think certain films na just stick to you and when they stick to you, you should just grab it. Today, there is so much talent and there is so much space for everyone to do different sort of work and the fact that the audiences have loved Dream Girl so much, it is the validation of that.

You mentioned that for Dream Girl you were instantly on board. But normally, do you have any boxes that need to be ticked in your mind before you give a nod to the project?
