Nushrat Bharucha Opens Up: Has A Woman Hit On Me? Have I Faced The Casting Couch?

Basking in the success of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Nushrat Barucha is all set to start shooting for her next film Turram Khan with Hansal Mehta opposite Rajkummar Rao. While starting the conversation, Nushrat recalled a time when she wanted to work with Hansal Mehta. She said, “I remember, I tried to reach Hansal sir a few years back and I forget for which film it was--- but for whatever reason, it didn’t happen. I always wanted to reconnect and say 'Sir, anything you are doing, I would love to come and work with you'. Basically, timing ki baat hai, yaar. And trust me, this film (Turram Khan) just happened. But I am glad it took time since that gave me also time to discover myself as an actor and to be sure of my skills before doing a film with someone like Hansal's stature."

Giving us insight about Turram Khan, she said, “One thing that’s hooked me on to the film is the character I play in it.  I love to try something new.  In Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, I remember that I had stressed to the writers that they should not make me do something repetitive." The actress also agreed that Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety was a turning point of her carrier. We thenasked Nushrat about the whole ‘female bashing’ controversy right from Pyaar Ka Punchnama to Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, which director Luv Ranjan is accused of. Nushrat also spoke at length about the famous  5-minute monologue by Kartik Aaryan.
