Super-hit film Pyaar ka Punchnama clocks 10 years to its release, On this actress of the film Nushrratt Bharuccha expresses her gratitude for the film and the character that put her on the map of the industry. In the film, the actress plays the role of a mean girlfriend Neha, with a performance that went on to become one of the most memorable performances of all time.
Nushrratt says, “When I look back to the time we were shooting for Pyaar Ka Punchnama – none of us had the faintest clue what wonders this film will do for us, or even how this film will eventually turn into a power-packed franchise. Playing the controlling and manipulative girlfriend like Neha, was so not me in real life, which made it even more difficult for me to understand her and essay her correctly.”
She further adds, “A lot of people then advised me to not do this film and wait for another better opportunity because this film had no known faces, a first time director, first time producer, the whole team was new. But Pyaar Ka Punchnama, opened up a world of opportunities for me, and ‘Neha’ literally marked me on the map of the industry and created a unique identity for the audience to remember me by. I truly believe in Destiny, and that the Universe has a larger plan for each of us. Which is why I can honestly say, The film chose me, I didn’t choose the film. It was meant to be this way.”
On the work front Nushrratt will be seen in Ram Setu opposite Akshay Kumar, Chhori and Hurdang soon.
