Nushrat Bharucha Indian actress known for her work in Bollywood films.


Last year, Amala Paul surprised everyone with a stellar act in Aadai. Bold, riveting, and intense, the film that was completely shouldered by the South star, did reasonably well at the box office as well. Now, with several South movies being spun into pan-India projects in Hindi, Aadai is also getting remade in the language soon. 

We hear that the producers have also zeroed in on who they want to cast as their female lead. "They wanted someone who is bold and will be up to take the risk. It's an A-rated film with several bold scenes, including a completely nude scene. They had approached Shraddha Kapoor first but it didn't work out. Now, they have offered the film to Nushrat Bharucha who has liked the script. But what needs to be seen is how the team plans to shoot and execute it since it's a very tricky space to be in. They wanted a performer who can play the vivacious and the vulnerable with equal aplomb and Nushrat fit their bill. But she is yet to sign on the dotted line because the modalities are currently being discussed."

For the last two years actor, Ayushmann Khurrana has given the audiences multiple reasons to cheer about. From his varied characters to his impactful performances, Ayushmann has surprised fans every single time he has made his presence felt on the screen. Exactly a year ago, he did just that when he starred in Raaj Shaandilyaa's Dream Girl. If you have no idea what we're talking about, sit back and read on. Today, as Dream Girl completes one year since its release, we decided to revisit the film and look back on five fun takeaways from the film. Check it out below: 

Andhadhun, Badhaai Ho, and Article 15, Ayushmann delivered back-to-back hits and then took the audiences by surprise when the trailer of Dream Girl dropped. Set in Mathura, the film revolves around Ayushmann as Karam, a jobless guy who plays female parts in local religious plays. He then joins a friendship hotline and starts working under the pseudonym of Pooja. His callers are varied and Ayushmann blew away the audiences with his female voice. Did you know the actor did not use any kind of voice-over? Yes, for the female caller's voice, Ayushamann tuned his own voice and we must say it was rather effortless. While his acting as always was top-notch, it was his female voice that scored him brownie points. Not just that, Ayushmann won the climax scene in a lehenga choli avatar and made it seem rather natural. 

Annu Kapoor as Jagjeet Singh plays Ayushmann's father who sells funeral items for a living. Annu Kapoor and Ayushmann's Jodi in Vicky  Donor was a massive hit and in Dream Girl as well the father-son duo was entertaining. The veteran actor has dished out impressive performances every time he appears on the screen and films like these are only proof that Annu Kapoor's comedy timing hasn't aged at all.

The green dress that broke the internet; was WATCH Nushrat Bharucha’s slit dress that grabbed headlines. Nushrat Bharucha is all set to celebrate her pandemic birthday today. The Pyaar ka Punchnama star who is famous for her quirky roles is also one of the most experimental actresses when it comes to style. Just before the pandemic broke the actress attended a red carpet in a high slit green dress which well did not go well with many as they found it too revealing. But given the way the actor carried herself with confidence and maintained a dignified silence to troll proved how she is one of the boldest actresses in Bollywood. Check out this throwback video. Nushrat posted a string of pictures from a sea-facing hotel room. In the images, she is seen flaunting a svelte figure in a bubble gum pink bikini paired with a pristine white cover-up. She completed her look with sunglasses.

"This is an appreciation post for all that I had when I had it... all that I did when I did. One year later, today I remember it all so fondly.. miss it all so dearly but feel so blessed and lucky to have had it. To have lived it the way I wanted it. So thank you Universe for giving me all that you have, the way that you have! #Gratitude," Nushrat wrote alongside the image."By talking to them, I want them to feel that they are not alone in this. We all are very thankful for what they are doing for us, and if I can lend support in any way by just telling them this, I would definitely do it. It's terribly difficult for them, they too have families but they are standing there doing their best, so this is my way of giving them back the feeling that we are in support of them," said Nushrat.

Apart from the fantastic front-runner, the film's casting department pulled in talented actors to take the film's script to the next level. From Vijay Raaz to Nushrat Bharucha to Paatal Lok's Abhishek Banerjee, Dream Girl's supporting cast was a big tick on the checklist. The cast also included Rajesh Sharma, Nidhi Bisht, Raj Bhansali, and Manjot Singh among others. Dream Girl's writers Nirmaan Singh and Raaj Shaandilyaa also did a great job at featuring their stories with Pooja in the film's narrative quite well.  

Nushrat Bharucha celebrates her birthday today, and it's even more special since today's the day when her first interview with her mother drops online. Nushrat joined us with her mother Tasneem Bharucha for a candid chat on life for the latest episode of Dear Mom. The actress spoke about everything from her most embarrassing moments as a kid to battling several kinds of struggles in life. 

Last year, Nushrat grabbed headlines after she revealed that she has battled a severe phase of depression in life. Despite mental health awareness being the order of the day, it's still considered a taboo topic that people shy away from addressing in public. But Nushrat did the brave thing of coming out and talking about it. In this episode, when we quizzed her about it, she revealed, "My father saw that interview the night it came out and when I came home, he started crying and told me, 'I never knew you went through all this. So when I say that I really didn't let them get affected by my absolute lows, I really meant it. But with family, there is a thing that they can sense. I might not tell them but they could always guess something's not right with me."

Nushrat Bharucha has clearly been someone who has made her mark in an industry on her own merit. From being shamed for her height to fighting nepotism, Nushrat has slowly and steadily climbed up the charts. For Dear Mom's latest episode, we had Nushrat joining in with her mom Tasneem Bharucha for their first-ever chat on life, love, and everything beyond. Their hilarious banter ranged from talking about their most embarrassing childhood memories to boyfriends, marriage, and even her phase of depression which she had to battle through with a smile.

During their fun chat, Nushrat revealed a funny incident when she found it hard to face her parents after shooting for Chote Chote Peg from Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. She shares, "I didn't tell them about the song and I was dreading what they would say. When the song was out, I didn't even show it to them. After that, I returned from promotions and I saw my parents playing Chote Chote Peg on this huge TV that we have at home."

Nushrat Bharucha was born on 17 May 1985 and is an Indian actress known for her work in Bollywood films. Bharucha made her acting debut with the film ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’in (2006). Her second venture was the box office flop Film Kal Kissne Dekha (2009). In 2011 buddy drama Pyaar Ka Punchnama marked Nushrat’s first commercial success.
