Mini Bio (1)

Nushrat Bharucha was born in a Dawoodi Bohra Muslim family to Tanvir Bharucha and Tasneem Bharucha in Mumbai, India. She began her acting career in the year 2002 at the age of 16. As a student of Jai Hind college, she walked into a talent management firm hoping to volunteer as a scout but instead, they hired her to act in Kittie Party (2002), a television show being broadcast on Zee TV. But, the long work hours and poor treatment of newcomers led her to quit the show in a year. During her college days, Nushrat was involved in organizing events and the backstage production of plays. For one such event in the year 2009, she managed to get a leading facewash brand as a sponsor for a talent show. After five days of auditions, the brand announced that they had selected Nushrat to be their 'Fresh Face', as a consequence of which she featured in a couple of advertisements and a feature film.

In the year 2010, Nushrat received a call from casting director Atul Mongia's office for an audition, which turned out to be the first major breakthrough of her career as it led to her selection for Dibakar Banerjee's LSD: Love, Sex Aur Dhokha (2010).

I used to exist on audition tapes on somebody's laptop as the backup option.
Industry has already started looking at me differently. And that difference is of belief. I can feel a sense of belief in me.
Comedy actually is quite difficult to do. The timing, the tone, the delivery and the precise expressions are all very crucial, especially for actresses because we are not given the author-backed punches.
I would rather do four films and be remembered for them than do 20 forgettable ones.
My life has changed drastically. I have now become an option for projects that earlier I probably wouldn't have been considered for.
I would like to do a biopic on Madhubalaji. I think she had a very adventurous and tragic life. She achieved great heights, in the short span of her life. I love her mix of simplicity and adaa. I would thoroughly enjoy trying to bring that to the big screen.
