Nushrratt Bharuccha is all ready for her next release, ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’, where she will be seen in a completely different character for the first time in her entire career.
Nushrratt has recently revealed that in order to completely get into the skin of her character of ‘Meenal’ from the movie, she took inspiration from her own house-help to get a better understanding of her character.
Speaking about her character, Bharuccha revealed
“While I was thinking about how to get into the character of Meenal, I started observing my own house-help to understand her mannerisms and characteristics. She was a great reference point for me and unknowingly, she helped me tremendously to get a deeper understanding of my character in Ajeeb Daastaans.”
She further added:
“Meenal’s story is that of an ordinary girl who is struggling to make ends meet, and provide for the best for herself and her sister. I could feel a similarity in Meenal’s life and my house-help, who too worked hard to provide for her son, with all the opportunities she can. I absolutely adore her because of her spirit of fighting hard, with a sweet smile on her face always.”
“For 3-4 hours that she would come, she would make all of us at home happy and ‘feel at home’ with her fun banter. And, that is what I wanted my character to also portray in the film.” Nushrratt Bharuccha said.
Netflix describes the upcoming movie as:
“Ajeeb Daastaans will showcase four diverse stories exploring human flaws and emotions like jealousy, entitlement, prejudices and toxicity, which are often entangled at the heart of a relationship. The films raise questions that will leave you with a dilemma between what’s right and what’s wrong as the lines get blurred.”
With ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’, we will be witnessing Nushrratt breaking her own image as a performer. Currently, she is taking up more challenging roles & her recent release ‘Chhalaang’ can be used as proof of the same.
Bharuccha currently has five movies in her kitty as of now. Apart from ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’, the other films that she has in the pipeline are ‘Hurdang’, ‘Chorii’, ‘Janhit Mein Jaari’ & ‘Ram Setu’.
