Nushrat who was last seen in Dream Girl will be now playing the main lead in a horror film titled Chhori. The film is a Hindi remake of the award-winning Marathi film Lapachhapi.

The 2017 Marathi film caught people’s attention as it told the story of age-old societal beliefs and practices that give rise to tales of pure terror. The film’s unique blend of scary and social drama made it a thrilling as well as an emotional ride. Keeping the same essence intact, Chhori’s script which is underway is being written by Vishal Kapoor who also wrote the original. Also, the Hindi remake will be helmed by Vishal Furia who had directed Lapachhapi as well.
While Chhori’s story will totally revolve around Nushrat’s character, it will be exciting to see her in an all-new avatar on screen. Other than Chhori Nushrat has some other interesting projects in the pipeline, she will be seen in Chhalaang opposite Rajkummar Rao and in Hurdang alongside Sunny Kaushal.
